Medical Examining Board to go slow on telemedicine rulemaking

The State of Wisconsin’s Medical Examining Board (MEB) has created a special committee to make recommendations on how to proceed with potential telemedicine administrative rules. Creation of the committee—an action the MEB took at its monthly meeting in Madison on Wednesday—allows for additional review of the wide array of public comments on the proposed rule. The Society was one of many entities providing feedback on the initial draft (see previous Medigram story).

The committee’s first meeting will follow completion of the MEB’s regular business on March 16. Based on the conversation at the MEB on Wednesday, it appears the discussions will last into the summer and the MEB could hold another public hearing on the proposal if substantive changes are made to the original draft.

Contact Mark Grapentine, JD, in the Society’s Government and Legal Affairs Department with any questions.
