Telemedicine payment parity law and training requirement now in effect

January 15, 2021

WSHA issued a new bulletin about two important changes to Washington State’s telemedicine laws. As of Jan. 1, 2021, Washington State’s telemedicine payment parity law is in full effect, which means payment for telemedicine services must be at the same rate as if the health care service were provided in person. Additionally, Washington State’s mandatory telemedicine training for most health care professionals is now available and must be completed by June 30, 2021. The full bulletin is available online.
