The Center for Connected Health Policy (CCHP) has a Telehealth Policy Finder where you can look up all telehealth-related policies and regulations, including those related to Private Payer and Medicaid Reimbursement across all 50 states and the District of Columbia, as well as at the  federal level.  .

CCHP has also put together the following resources to help you compare and contrast the laws and reimbursement policies for each state, including those related to Private Payer and Medicaid Reimbursement.

Private Payer Reimbursement.  Most of the states in the MATRC region (DC, DE, KY, MD, NJ, VA and WV) have some form of private payer law, meaning that commercial health plans may not deny reimbursement for a covered service solely because it was provided via telehealth. These laws generally do not apply to self-insured plans.

Medicaid Reimbursement.  All fifty states and the District of Columbia have some form of Medicaid reimbursement for telehealth. No two state Medicaid policies are identical in their requirements and restrictions!  CCHP has created this video discussing how Medicaid telehealth policy works:
