There are no parity laws in Florida right now. All this means is that the state does not yet legally require private payers or Medicaid to cover telemedicine services the same way as in-person services.
2019 Update: *Contracts between health insurers or health maintenance organizations and telehealth providers must be voluntary and must establish mutually acceptable payment rates or payment methodologies for services provided through telehealth.
