States with Telepractice Regulations
*Florida passed Telehealth, Chapter 2019-137, Florida Laws, which establishes standards of practice for telehealth services, including patient evaluations, record-keeping, and controlled substances prescribing. The law also authorizes out-of-state practitioners to perform telehealth services for patients in FL upon meeting certain eligibility requirements and registering with the Dept. of Health. The department is working on implementation and expects the application for out-of-state providers to be available in early fall 2019.
**In addition to telehealth regulations, telepractice registration, a limited license, is available to out-of-state providers who wish to provide telepractice services to clients located in Louisiana. The “home” license of the out-of-state provider must be based on equivalent qualification (degree, practicum, examination, etc.) standards or standards which exceed those established in Louisiana.
