Whether you are currently providing telehealth/telemedicine services or considering them, mastering the issue of state licensure is complex and necessary. The good news is that these issues are navigable if you understand when additional licensure is needed and how to master exceptions.
Obviously, you don’t want to face criminal prosecution for the unlicensed practice of medicine or be hit with an enforcement action for practicing in another state without a license. But going through the “normal” licensing process for each state you need and managing those licenses can be a nightmare.
Although practicing across state lines can be complex, there are a variety of options available that can make your life easier and ensure your licensure compliance. In this online training, healthcare attorneys, Bradley Davidsen, Esq. and Daniel Kim, Esq., will walk you through the nuances of practicing across state lines, especially when done through telehealth/telemedicine services, while complying with state and federal regulations.
You’ll also better understand exceptions and alternatives to obtaining a full medical (or other) license in order to practice telehealth/telemedicine, as well as how to choose the most efficient method for expanding a telehealth/telemedicine practice.
Here are just a few of the actionable, step-by-step telehealth licensure compliance tactics you’ll receive by viewing this 60-minute online training:
