Minnesota Medical Marijuana Program: Telemedicine

To date, Minnesota has yet to enact legislation that would define a telemedicine policy — however, the State of Minnesota, defines telemedicine as the consultation between a patient and healthcare practitioner, both geographically located in different places, by means of telecommunications technology and equipment.

To date, no parity laws have yet been enacted in Minnesota, that would require private payers to recognize and reimburse telemedicine services at the same rates as the equivalent health care service provided in-person — however, Minnesota Medicaid provides coverage for interactive audio-video synchronous services, and store-and-forward asynchronous services.

As per the Minnesota Medical Board, health care practitioners providing telemedicine services, are required to adhere to the same standard of professional conduct and practice, as healthcare practitioners of the same practice or specialty, providing services in-person — with the exception of prescription.

Out-of-state health care practitioners providing telemedicine services to patients in Minnesota, and contiguous counties, are required to apply for authorization prior to the service being provided — physicians have the option of applying for a telemedicine permit, or full license to practice in Minnesota.

On May 19, 2015, Minnesota enacted legislation allowing the state to join the Interstate Medical Licensing Compact, expediting a pathway to licensure for qualified physicians, wishing to practice telemedicine in multiple states.
