The COVID-19 pandemic poses unprecedented challenges to Texas and our nation, touching every facet of American life. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Texas health insurance providers have been fully committed to helping solve this crisis, including waiving out-of-pocket costs for telehealth and expanding telehealth programs, so that Texans can access the care they need from the safety of their own homes.

Today, Gov. Greg Abbott announced that Texas health insurance providers will continue reimbursing their network health care providers for telehealth appointments at the same rate as in-person visits through the end of 2020.

Texas Health insurance providers are committed to working together with Gov. Abbott and other state, federal, and local officials in every way possible. Together, we can and will defeat and overcome the COVID-19 crisis.
