Licensure Compacts

When telehealth is used, it is considered to be rendered at the physical location of the patient, and therefore a provider typically needs to be licensed in the patient’s state.  Because it can be burdensome on providers to get licensed in every state they wish to practice in via telehealth, many states have adopted interstate compacts which allow specific providers to practice in states they are not licensed in as long as they hold a license in good standing in their home state. CCHP is currently tracking six compacts: The Interstate Medical Licensure Compact, the Nurses Licensure Compact, the Physical Therapy Compact, the Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact, the Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Interstate Compact and the Emergency Medical Services Personnel Licensure Interstate Compact.
