HB 307, “The Georgia Telehealth Act”, authorizes healthcare professionals to provide telemedicine services from home. HB 307 will also make it possible for patients to receive telemedicine services from home, work, or school without first requiring an in-person visit. As introduced, this bill will allow the prescribing of medicine post-visit, prohibit separate deductibles, and require virtual visits to be as thorough and consistent as with an in-person visit. This is especially important when it comes to mental health services in order to create a more effective delivery system. HB 307 was signed by the Governor to go into effect July 1, 2021.
