Guide to State Telehealth Laws

“The Center for Connected Health Policy’s (CCHP) Fall 2019 release of the “State Telehealth Laws and Reimbursement Policies” report highlights the changes that have taken place in state telehealth policy. The report offers policymakers, health advocates, and other interested health care professionals a summary guide of telehealth-related policies, laws, and regulations for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

While this guide focuses primarily on Medicaid fee-for-service policies, information on managed care is noted in the report if it was available. The report also notes particular areas where they were unable to find information. Every effort was made to capture the most recent policy language in each state as of September 2019. Recently passed legislation and regulation have also been included in this version of the document with their effective date noted in the report (if applicable). This information also is available electronically in the form of an interactive map and search tool accessible on our website Consistent with previous editions, the information will be updated biannually, as laws, regulations and administrative policies are constantly changing.”
