Below is the correct posting for the Governor’s new executive order on Telehealth.

EO 2020-138 Emerg order – telehealth – re-issue

MMHCA would like to highlight two parts of what the governor orders at the end:

Number 5 which references the law requiring that the provider be licensed in Michigan to provide Telehealth to Michigan residents and relaxes this requirement while the state of emergency is in place.

Number 7 (b) which defines “healthcare providers” As including health professionals licensed under article 15 of the public health code which includes LPC’s. This addresses the question that seems to be asked a lot, “does this include us?”

We have included two other pieces of information: MCL 500.3476, The law requiring that providers of telehealth to Michigan residents be licensed in Michigan CLICK HERE, and the definition of telehealth in the public health code CLICK HERE.
