Proposed Revisions to the Telehealth Emergency Care Services Referral Requirements


Assembly Bill 2193, which seeks to amend New Jersey’s telehealth and telemedicine statute, passed in the New Jersey General Assembly on February 28, 2023 and is now being considered by the Senate. If enacted, this bill would revise the emergency care services referral standards for providers of telemedicine and telehealth. A healthcare provider would still be required to make the appropriate referral for in-person emergency care if a patient should have a need and assist a patient if the provider observes the patient experiencing a healthcare emergency during a telehealth encounter. Otherwise, a provider would no longer be required to make a good faith effort to directly contact and coordinate with emergency services and facilitate the exchange of information between emergency services and the patient during an emergency.
