Billing and Insurance

For hospitals

The OHSU Telemedicine Network does not bill collaborating hospitals or providers for a telemedicine consultation. OHSU sends a bill directly to the patient's insurance company for a telemedicine consultation.

For skilled nursing facilities

Billing for consults and other telemedicine services is done according to agreements established with each facility.

For insurance providers

Oregon law requires health insurance plans to treat telemedicine consultations the same as an in-person visit with a physician and to reimburse OHSU accordingly.
