This CLE course will guide counsel for healthcare facilities and practitioners on the requirements and exceptions for telemedicine licensing and scope of practice. The panel will offer best practices for overcoming licensing challenges and explain how providers can comply with the law and get paid.

Description

One of the most significant regulatory challenges of telemedicine is licensure. For example, how does the state classify where a consult or treatment occurs? If the professional is providing a second opinion, does this fall under the same requirements? When is an in-person exam required? What are the exceptions to telemedicine licensure? Both physicians and non-physician practitioners must meet different states' requirements when consulting, diagnosing, or treating patients.

Further, what are the impacts of state scope-of-practice laws? Can mid-levels provide telemedicine services? To what extent must they be supervised by, or collaborate with, physicians? What should one include in the agreements governing such arrangements? Where can mid-levels offer distance care independently?

Counsel for practitioners must understand what each state requires to meet the licensing and scope of practice requirements. Also, counsel must be aware of myriad rules governing fee arrangements, anti-kickback, and self-referral.

Listen as our authoritative panel examines regulatory requirements and challenges for healthcare providers and facilities related to licensing and scope of practice. The panel will offer best practices for overcoming these regulatory hurdles.
