Texas’ Senate Bill 1107 and the future of US telemedicine

On 27 May 2017, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed into law Senate Bill 1107, which significantly increases opportunities for telemedicine services in the State. The new Bill removes the requirement previously in place in Texas for a face-to-face visit or an established physician-patient relationship to be in place before most providers could offer direct-to-consumer telehealth services. Alexis Gilroy, Todd Kelly and Courtney Carrell, of Jones Day, discuss the key features of Senate Bill 1107, and assess the future of telemedicine services in Texas and beyond.
