Teleconsultation and professional ethics

Teleconsultation in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic is subject to specific rules.

Teleconsultation is a form of medical practice like any other. It allows a healthcare professional to give a consultation at a distance using information and communication technologies. Teleconsultation only replaces medical consultation. It is therefore prohibited to bill a patient for a teleconsultation for any other remote request from the patient, such as a prescription renewal or a request for general information.
