Telehealth - HB 15-1029
A bill that has recently passed is HB 15-1029, also referred to as Telehealth that many people have testified on behalf of.
- This bill removes barriers and limits on telehealth so physicians can use this valuable tool whenever and wherever it is in the best interests of the patient.
- It also makes sure that telehealth visits are treated just the same as in-person doctor-patient visits for health plan deductibles, co-payments, co-insurance, durational benefit limits, and annual lifetime benefit maximums.
- The main point to take away from this bill is that this is a way for those in Colorado to receive their healthcare in a more convenient way that fits their needs.
