The OCR announced it would lift penalties around telehealth use during the COVID-19 pandemic, its officials released clarifications around HIPAA compliance.

The OCR notification of enforcement discretion applies to all HIPAA-covered healthcare providers that use telehealth services during this emergency. However, the notice explained that a health insurance company that pays for telehealth services is not covered by the enforcement discretion. Thus, payors may restrict certain platforms used for telehealth communication.
