Private insurance coverage for telehealth

Many commercial health plans have broadened coverage for telehealth (telemedicine) services in response to COVID-19.

Most insurance providers cover at least some form of telehealth service. Contact the insurance providers you accept to see if they cover reimbursement for any telehealth services.
