Amy Lerman, Member of the Firm in the Health Care & Life Sciences practice, and Epstein Becker Green’s Telemental Health Laws app  were featured in Becker’s Hospital Review, in “Telehealth: Law Firm Outlines 3 Drivers, 2 Barriers Going into 2019,” by Jessica Kim Cohen.

Following is an excerpt:

Telehealth has seen growing acceptance among providers and legislators in the past year. However, adoption has slowed as many health insurers don’t cover the service, according to a report from national law firm Epstein Becker Green.

Epstein Becker Green reviewed state telehealth laws, regulations and policies for its annual report, which focuses on mental and behavioral healthcare. 2018 marks the third year Epstein Becker Green has released its 50-state telehealth report.

“Telehealth is a proactive solution for patients who need quality care from healthcare providers who may not be located close by or require real-time or after-hours care,” said Amy Lerman, a member of the law firm’s healthcare and life sciences practice who spearheaded the report. “We are excited to find that it is still evolving, growing and improving Americans’ quality of life.”
