LANSING, Mich. — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order, Thursday, expanding telehealth options for Michiganders.
The order gives healthcare providers permission to use the services and encourages them to do so after getting consent from their patients.
The order allows mental health care, drug treatment and home health services to be done online.
It also requires insurance carriers to cover virtual check-ins and e-visits to keep health care affordable.
The order is effective from now until June 10th.
