COVID-19 pandemic likely to cause US telemedicine boom
The COVID-19 pandemic is likely to lead to a new era of telemedicine. Medical insurers, including the US government through Medicare, have generally limited telemedicine reimbursements to those who couldn't easily make it to doctor's offices. COVID-19 has emphasized reducing the strain on the entire medical system – from doctor's offices to hospitals.
In order to both reduce the burden on the healthcare system and keep the most vulnerable elements of the population protected, the US government and private health insurers are increasing reimbursements for telemedicine visits and making them more widely available among the US population.
