BCN and BCBSM Extend Relaxation of HIPAA Compliant Requirements for Telehealth

Posted: 05/26/2020

In order to continue expanding access to telehealth visits during the COVID-19 public health emergency, Blue Care Network (BCN) and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM) is extending the federal government’s relaxed HIPAA compliance requirements for telehealth visits. BCN and BCBSM have extended these guidelines “until further notice.” These relaxed telehealth requirements allow you to use non-HIPAA-compliant technology (i.e. Apple FaceTime, Skype, Zoom Meeting) to conduct telemedicine visits. Click here to read BCBSM’s official announcement on this extension. If you would like assistance in moving to a HIPAA-compliant platform,  please call OSP at 248-357-4048.
