Telehealth Compacts in the States
A lack of physicians in states is keeping Americans from receiving much-needed care.
Telehealth licensure compacts allow licensed health care practitioners to see patients in other states that are also members of the same compact. By joining these compacts, states give their residents needed access to physicians, psychologists, and other health care providers. Additionally, they help to address the issue of doctor shortages in rural and underserved areas.
ERIC has successfully engaged with state lawmakers across the country to open access to telehealth to millions of Americans. To date, with ERIC’s encouragement, the following states have joined telehealth compacts:
