The regulatory landscape for practicing telemedicine across state lines is challenging, to say the least. For starters, the laws governing the provision of telemedicine services vary widely state-to-state. Healthcare providers are generally required to be licensed in the state in which the patient is receiving services. Some states offer a special license for the provision of certain types of telemedicine services, while other states allow for limited consultations by out-of-state practitioners without licensure.

It is the responsibility of the practitioner to know and adhere to the applicable rules; but, to add to the confusion, there is no one consistent place to find these rules. In evaluating the telemedicine licensure requirements per state, healthcare providers must carefully consider the nature and frequency of the services they will provide, as well as the time and expense of licensure in multiple states.
