René Y. Quashie, a Senior Counsel in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the firm’s Washington, DC, office, was mentioned in Telehealth & Telecare Aware, in “Telehealth Reimbursement: A Major Obstacle Overcome This Year?”

Following is an excerpt:

A retrospective look at telehealth billings is in a just-published paper by the Health Care Cost Institute ... which analyzed thousands of claims from four major insurers (Aetna, Humana, Kaiser Permanente and United Healthcare) to track trends in telehealth billings from 2009-2013. Key findings are summarized by senior counsel René Quashie of leading health tech law firm Epstein Becker Green in this article. It’s evident that the private payer sector didn’t exactly lead the way on commercial adoption of telehealth and telemedicine.

The article references “Telehealth Private Pay Reimbursement: The Real Numbers,” a post Mr. Quashie authored for TechHealth Perspectives, an Epstein Becker Green blog.
