Some Virtual Visits Covered

February 13, 2008

In a story from the LA Times, coverage by Cigna and Aetna is described for some online visits. Particularly focused on minor problems and follow ups with existing patients, more routine office visits are moving online. Kaiser with more incentive to move to virtual visits, is even using web cams for a more personal touch. Most visits are more structure than regular email.

This is encouraging news – let’s hope other payers will follow suit.
