NEW: State Telemedicine Gaps Analysis

Just released: two critical state telemedicine policy reports which identify gaps in coverage and reimbursement, and in physician practice standards and licensure. These first-of-their-kind reports identify and compare state policies on a report card, assigning each state grades ranging from A-to-F based on telemedicine reimbursement and physician practice standards.  

ATA has captured the complex policy landscape of 50 states with differing telemedicine policies, and translated the data into an easy-to-use format. Each state is graded based on telemedicine reimbursement policies as well as policies outlined by their respective state Medical Board.
