Medical Assurance Company of Mississippi (MACM) is aware that Medical Practices want to use Telemedicine to assist them during the current public health crisis. Please be advised that MACM will insure the use of Telemedicine for nonsurgical care, as long as the patient is located within Mississippi at the time of the Telemedicine encounter, so there is no need to contact MACM. This includes new patients. When using Telemedicine, we strongly urge Medical Practices to consider good risk management practices, which can be reviewed at the following link here. This applies only during the current public health crisis. Surgical practices should contact MACM prior to using Telemedicine.
