Arizona's new telemedicine law expands coverage, adds platforms

Arizona legislators have enacted a new law that expands telehealth and telemedicine in the state and improves insurance coverage.

Governor Doug Ducey signed SB 1089 into law April 19, following unanimous senate approval in March and near-unanimous House approval earlier this month. The new law, which goes into effect in 2021, adds asynchronous (store-and-forward) telehealth and remote patient monitoring to the state’s connected care guidelines and boosts payer coverage for those services.
