Many of the states have issued directives and guidance relating to COVID-19, and more are doing so on a daily basis. These directives and guidance address numerous insurance regulatory issues including: premium forbearance, out of network and balance billing issues, cost sharing under health insurance policies, telehealth requirements, regulatory compliance issues including licensing and other issues.
