Product Description

What began as an information exchange has now become another way to communicate health problems and receive medical care. Some commercial insurers are even paying for virtual visits.

With the ease of establishing an online presence and the availability of different platforms for doing so, many providers don't think twice about dispensing healthcare online. There are even systems set up to speed prescriptions to the patient's pharmacy.

However, Medicare and federal and state licensing agencies have not fully embraced online healthcare. Agencies continue to pursue alleged “rogue” sites, not run by health care professionals, that offer prescription drugs and cures. To make matters worse, many states have not defined when online medicine is “legal” and when it isn’t.

Don't let your practice fall prey to the traps of online healthcare, join nationally recognized, healthcare legal expert, Wayne J. Miller, Esq., for this 90 minute examination of the regulatory risks and pitfalls associated with online healthcare.
