Telemedicine Physician Licensure

The healthcare industry is evolving rapidly with telemedicine quickly emerging as one of the most transformative technologies of our day. With demand growing at an accelerated pace, an increasing number of providers are seeking licensure to provide telemedicine services across state lines.

To ensure quality care and patient safety across the board, providers must have proper licensure credentials to practice telemedicine. Unfortunately, the standard licensure process can be complex, time-consuming, and costly.

That’s where Medical Licensure Group (MLG) comes in. MLG helps physicians and hospitals through the entire medical licensure process, from filing applications to tracking paperwork and answering any pressing questions along the way.

With MLG, you can save time, money, and energy in getting your medical license(s) up and running so that you can focus on providing the best possible care for your patients.

Let’s dive deeper into telemedicine requirements for physicians and look at what you need to do to start incorporating telemedicine services into your practice.

Telemedicine Physician Licensure Requirements

While the concept of telemedicine is relatively new, each state in the US has its own set of licensure requirements that must be met by any physician providing care via telemedicine.

To practice telemedicine, a physician must first obtain a valid medical license in the state where they intend to provide care, regardless of their physical location. Further, the provider may also need to acquire additional licenses for the specific states in which patients may be receiving their care (read on to learn how the IMLC helps with this). This is due to state-specific laws that may vary widely across jurisdictions, requiring physicians to maintain separate medical licenses in multiple states to provide care to patients in each location.

Failure to remain compliant with local regulations may lead to costly penalties and even loss of licensure, making it ever more important that the licensure process is taken seriously.

Even though the process may seem challenging, there are organizations (such as MLG) dedicated to helping physicians navigate the complex licensure landscape painlessly and stress-free.

The Interstate Medical Licensure Compact

The Interstate Medical Licensure Compact (IMLC) is a groundbreaking initiative that makes it easier for physicians to practice telemedicine across state lines. By streamlining the licensure process, the IMLC simplifies the cumbersome task of obtaining licenses in multiple states and reduces delays in the provision of medical care to patients.

To take advantage of the IMLC, a provider must first be eligible for membership. This includes meeting certain education standards and having active or pending medical licenses in at least one member state. All physician applicants must pass a criminal background check and must not have any pending disciplinary action against them in any other jurisdiction.

Once a provider has been approved for membership, there are numerous benefits to joining the compact.

Providers will have access to patient data from multiple states within one application, and they’ll no longer have to pay separate fees for each state license, allowing them to move quickly between multiple states to provide medical care.
