Interactive State-by-State Map of COVID-Related Telehealth Waivers
CMS has granted a special waiver to healthcare providers using telemedicine to connect with Medicare patients across state lines. Many states have also introduced special telehealth waivers for out-of-state physicians and providers for the duration of their respective states of emergency.
Applicable state laws will continue to govern who is authorized to provide professional services in that state without holding a license from that state’s medical board. Professionals must continue to register with the appropriate authorities when required by a state.
When a state withdraws its declaration of emergency, these waivers usually cease to apply. Most states have been extending their state of emergency on a rolling basis in 30-day increments. We’ve done our best to compile each state’s current status on COVID-related telehealth waivers as a quick reference guide. Please independently confirm that the declaration is still in place in place before beginning any treatment, and ensure that you are in compliance with all applicable regulations. Cease practicing if a jurisdiction withdraws its emergency declaration.
