Telehealth Does my policy with Curi cover telehealth? Curi’s medical professional liability policy will cover telehealth visits for insured physicians during this declared National Emergency—extending, without conditions, for the later of either sixty (60) days from March 16, 2020, or the lifting of the National Emergency declaration by our President. We urge all insured physicians utilizing telehealth modalities to please do the following: Use reasonable measures to protect the privacy and security of protected health information. Check the medical board website in the state(s) in which you are practicing (see our page on state-specific resources and sites or The Federation of State Medical Boards’ searchable telemedicine resource for more information), and follow any guidelines they have in place for such encounters. Keep a record of all such encounters (see our page on how telehealth services may differ at this time for a suggested chart disclaimer for each encounter). Insured physicians may provide telehealth services to both established and new patients within your state of licensure(s). You may also provide telehealth services to patients residing in states where the in-state licensure requirement has been waived during the current emergency. To enable physicians to provide services in these states, Medicare has waived its fee-for-service billing requirement that a physician (or non-physician practitioner) must be licensed in the state in which the physician is practicing. Additional information about the waiver can be found here. SHARE News & Knowledge All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
