The Challenge for the Telemedicine Industry
Before COVID-19 there were about 49 states that required physicians engaging in telemedicine to be licensed in the state in which the patient was located. 12 states also issued a special purpose license that allowed for the practice of medicine across state lines. And six state boards required physicians to register if they wished to practice across state lines.
COVID-19 altered this landscape. Now 25 or so states have enacted emergency rules that have relaxed all of those requirements. Each state’s rules are still different and it’s up to the physicians or other practitioners to make sure that they’re being compliant, but at this point doctors in 35 states and the District of Columbia now use telehealth to treat patients in other states without an out-of-state license. These are emergency orders and they are temporary. Only true practitioners of business license compliance can really guess what’s going to happen next.
