eWellness Healthcare Corporation (OTCQB:EWLL) announced Monday that a number of major health insurers including UnitedHealthcare, CIGNA, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of California have moved to make digital physical therapy fully reimbursable. 

As many physical therapists (PTs) are currently unable to meet with patients in person due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), telemedicine options like eWellness’ PHIZIO program allow them to provide assessment and treatment in real-time using a smartphone or laptop.

Through an interactive video chat, physicians are able to prescribe and monitor patients’ home exercises — all while working from home themselves.

Going forward, eWellness said it expects full reimbursement for digital physical therapy to be adopted by all major health insurers.

The company is offering group demos and training sessions of the program for physicians at a cost of $49 per person. Providers who complete training will have free use of the platform for 30 days and will be eligible to receive patient referrals from the company’s website.

On March 23, the company announced that it had trained 188 PTs in the US and Canada.
