Nutrition Telehealth: Part 2

Telehealth is one of the most exciting, and rapidly changing, aspects of nutrition reimbursement!  Over the last few weeks, we've covered an Introduction to Telehealth and Nutrition Telehealth which outlines which states fully cover telehealth.  

Unfortunately, not all states have legislation to demand nutrition telehealth coverage just yet - like so much of nutrition insurance, telehealth is still evolving. Here are the states that provide partial coverage, have no coverage, or have proposed legislation for coverage.
