 Iowa Medicaid and other Payers Reimburse for Telehealth Visits

Iowa's Telehealth law from April 2018 states that "A policy, contract or plan providing for third-party payment or prepayment of health or medical expenses shall not discriminate between coverage benefits for health care services that are provided in person and the same health care services that are delivered through telehealth."
