Telemedicine Toolkit

Cross-State Licensing
  • No current national policy or legislation addressing state licensing requirements and potential barriers that these requirements pose to provision of telemedicine services. 
  • Many states have instituted temporary waivers of some licensing requirements for telemedicine services during the COVID-19 public health emergency (see FSMB resources below)
  • A number of multistate compacts exist to ease the burden of cross-state licensure requirements (e.g. Interstate Medical Licensure Compact)
