Medical Trivia (Answer at 44:30) – In what year did Medicare first pay for telemedicine visits – in this case, for patients in underserved rural areas?
Listener Question (46:00) – Could you please explain the differences in job function/training/licensed abilities between physicians, physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners and nurses?
