Not really. The largest insurer has copied the approach of movie theaters that do not let us bring our own refreshments to force us to spend exorbitant sums at their concession. This is not a move that allows me to Skype with a patient and get paid.  This is a move that forces my institution to buy and maintain software, create workflows and policies and support an infrastructure so that (1) the insurer an control it and (2) it feeds the money monster.

TALKING TO DOCTORS via video chat is the future. Talking to doctors via text message is the even better future we should hope for after that.
