Telehealth Coverage Extended in Oregon

Telehealth Coverage Extended in Oregon

Ten health insurers in Oregon including Kaiser Permanente and Providence have committed to extending telehealth coverage for a broad range of services through the end of the year, KKLC reports.

Telehealth services were expanded at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic to accommodate social distancing and stay-at-home orders, covering services such as consultations, routine checkups and mental health. Insurers will continue reimbursing the telehealth visits at the same rate of in-person visits.

Here are the 10 Oregon payers extending telehealth coverage through 2020:

  • Bridgespan
  • PacificSource
  • Cigna
  • Providence
  • Health Net
  • Regence
  • Kaiser Permanente
  • Samaritan
  • Moda
  • UnitedHealthcare

Oregon’s state Medicaid plan, Oregon Health Plan, also agreed to extend telehealth coverage through the end of the year.
