MMGMA’s Government Affairs Committee has been working closely with its lobbying team and state leaders. There are a lot of decisions being made right now and the impact to our independent medical group practices is great. Most recently, we have been working with the Department of Commerce and they have specifically asked for MMGMA member feedback, on matters related to Telemedicine. For that reason, we have created a very short survey asking questions about telemedicine coverage, reimbursement, billing and other issues.


Please take a few minutes to respond to this survey ASAP: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6RP3JLY.


If you don’t feel you are the best person to respond to these questions, please forward this to the individual who can reply for your organization. And please let them know we need a response as quickly as possible so we can get back to the Department of Commerce.


Here is some feedback that has already been collected from clinics

  • Some insurance still will not pay the Q3014 which is the site original fee. We staff a nurse FT for telemeds.
  • Medicare and some commercials will pay. Doesn’t seem that most Medicaids do.
  • For our practice, Medicare pays 80% of the $26.24 and commercial normally pays $18-25 of the $59.00 fee.
  • Most patients are MN, but concern about constraints for those who live outside the state.
  • Overall, we are Just hoping for improved guidelines on payment and the amount…..

Thank you in advance for your time and feedback.
