KMA representatives questioned why Noh Hwan Kyu, President of the KMA, accepted the government suggestion of a 6-month pilot program for virtual doctor visits.

Over 180 representatives who gathered for a vote asked Noh to explain his latest decision to accept the pilot program.

Noh responded, “The government has never executed any pilot program for virtual doctor visits. We need to object the proposal with some evidence, but there was nothing. That’s why we accepted the pilot program (that is doomed to fail).”

He added, “We need the evidence the virtual doctor visits are related to misdiagnoses. Nobody would trust the possibility without the pilot program.”

He said, “But we had health insurance issues resolved clearly while accepting the pilot program the government really wanted to push.”
