Inland Empire Health Plan, or IEHP, has expanded its remote services during the coronavirus pandemic.

Jarrod McNaughton is the CEO of IEHP.

He says the expansion of telehealth services is a step in the right direction.

“What's great about this is that both the state as well as the federal government have actually relaxed the requirements that were in place previously to the COVID-19 pandemic to allow providers to actually have both video or telephonic audio visits with their patients," McNaughton says.
