More #NWI Places Offering TeleHealth or TeleMedicine

     Governor Holcomb issued an executive order on March 30, 2020 with directives allowing flexibility for hospitals and health care professionals responding to the public health emergency declared by Governor Holcomb on March 2, 2020. As a result, the Indiana Department of insurance is directed to request health insurers to provide coverage for expanded telemedicine services.
    Part of the Federal $2.2 trillion Coronavirus relief package approved in March, granted funds for the purchase of telecommunications devices, services and related medical equipment used for patient care by nonprofit hospitals, teaching hospitals and medical schools, community health and mental health centers, local health departments, rural health clinics and skilled nursing facilities.
     In addition, Relaxed rules governing telehealth from the federal government have made it easier to shift appointments to a virtual platform and enroll providers to handle telehealth encounters.
     In Lake County, there are already several facilities offering these “Virtual Visit” services. They include
