Telemedicine“Providing telemedicine services to employees can raise a number of legal issues – the most common being compliance with federal laws such as ERISA, COBRA and HIPAA, as well as state laws concerning medical licensure and practice and informed consent. Employers offering access to a telemedicine program for all employees – regardless of group health plan enrollment status – could inadvertently create a separate ERISA group health plan.” [The Akron Legal News]
