Current Bill Summary

SB 829 - This act modifies the definition of "telehealth" and "telemedicine" to include the use of adaptive questionnaires as part of asynchronous store-and-forward technology. Such adaptive questionnaires shall be sufficient to establish an informed diagnosis as though a medical interview or physical examination has been performed in person for purposes of establishing a physician-patient relationship through telemedicine, including for purposes of prescribing any drug, controlled substance, or other treatment. A static questionnaire shall not constitute an acceptable medical interview and examination.

For purposes of defining an "electronic visit" or "e-visit", the sole use of technology through an adaptive questionnaire shall not constitute an electronic visit.

This act is identical to HB 2165 (2022) and HCS/HB 495 (2021) and similar to 284 (2021).
