Practicing in Different States


“What are the implications of having a patient travel to an out of state location where the physician is not licensed to practice?” Has this come up for you and how did you handle?


As long as the doctor/patient relationship was initially established in the state where the doctor is licensed, then they can continue a virtual consultation/encounter from a distance. Now, that’s in LA. It might be different in other states. A lot depends on the rules of the state board.


What docfreeman said. The same applies internationally. The regulations vary significantly according governing body.
