Health Care Partner and Practice Leader Douglas Grimm gave two presentations on June 9th at The Center for Telehealth and e-Health Law's 2022 Digital Law Summit. He is a member of CTeL’s DC legal resource team.

The first session was titled “Telehealth and the No Surprises Act.” Carol Yarborough, Operations Manager for the Telehealth Resource Center at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center, joined Douglas for the session. Together they explored and discussed the effect of the federal and state telehealth waivers, payment for the provision of telehealth services during a patient emergency, as well as the multiple requirements imposed upon telehealth providers when providing non-emergent services to out-of-network patients.
