290.006

Telemedicine Reimbursement: Telemedicine (clinical services delivered via telecommunications technology) is considered to be acceptable medical practice so long as the quality and effectiveness (outcome) of the clinical service provided is comparable to clinical services delivered by traditional methods. As such, the Texas Medical Association supports the concept that payers should provide equitable reimbursement for clinical services delivered via telecommunications technology, and take appropriate action to promote this concept with payers, business groups and other professional associations (Board of Councilors, p 38, I-95; reaffirmed CSE Rep. 1-A-05; reaffirmed CSE Rep. 1-A-15).
