    I was concerned that this may happen. All Docs doing tele-visits need to make sure that the insurance companies are continuing to reimburse at current level.

    This is very frustrating as we had CIGNA patients calling us telling them CIGNA for JP Morgan Chase was stopping telehealth coverage retroactive to May 31st. ​We later were told by our COPC team that this was not happening, but since these televisits have really helped maintain and extend care during this pandemic we need to ensure we are going to continue to get paid for our work so we can continue to care for our patients no matter where they are.
