Editorial comment

As Williams and Talwar comment, policy surrounding telemedicine is forthcoming and needed. During the initial emergence of COVID-19 the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) temporarily expanded insurance coverage to include telemedicine.1 Similarly, most private insurances followed the path of CMS and expanded their coverage as well. CMS is finalizing their policy to extend telemedicine coverage into 2023 as many private insurances are doing the same. 1 While coverage is being extended, it remains unclear if this coverage will be permanent, and whether or not telemedicine will continue to offer fair and equitable reimbursements for services.
