Nevada: Division defines telemedicine, addresses related topics
The proposed definition of telemedicine services is services provided to an injured worker where the physician or chiropractor is located not less than 50 miles apart and medical information is communicated between the injured worker and physician or chiropractor in real time with the use of simultaneous interactive audio and video communication equipment. After comments are considered, the division may give notice of intent to act on the regulations. Other topics for the workshop include the requirement for prior written approvals for telemedicine services by both the injured worker and insurer for every telemedicine appointment, establishing an originating facility fee, establishing an originating provider fee, and establishing a distant site provider fee.
