“Telemedicine is the use of medical information exchanges from one site to another via electronic communications to improve a recipient’s health. Electronic communication means the use of interactive telecommunications equipment that includes, at a minimum, audio and video equipment permitting two-way, real time interactive communication between the patient at the originating site, and the physician or practitioner at the distant site.”
Louisiana Medicaid will not provide reimbursement for store-and-forward based upon the definition of “telemedicine” which describes telemedicine as including “audio and video equipment permitting two-way, real time interactive communication” therefore excluding store-and-forward.
Physicians must inform telemedicine patients of the relationship between the physician and patient, and the role of any other health care provider with respect to management of the patient. The patient may decline to receive telemedicine services and withdraw from such care at any time.
Our telemedicine services can be applied to big cities as well as rural locations. We contract with the highest quality health professionals and partner with hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities throughout the Nation.
