Map of the USAAs you navigate the legal-ethical vicissitudes of teletherapy during COVID-19, you may have clients leave your state of licensure. When that happens, you will want to answer the question of whether it is permissible for you to work with that client in that state.

Quite a few states have created provisions for temporary permission to practice by providers without a local license. This is done to support access to, and continuity of, care during the COVID-19 crisis. In addition, many state licensing boards already had temporary practice provisions before the coronavirus hit!

This post is a collection of temporary practice provision declarations made by states and licensing boards, as well as existent (pre-COVID-19) provisions and prohibitions. This collection is not exhaustive. We will update it as and when we are made aware of new declarations or rule amendments.

This Thing Ain’t Perfect… Yet

It is pretty hard to make a list of rules for 4 professions across 51 states without missing some items.

If you know of a declaration or rule amendment that is not reflected in this collection, please share it with us at info@personcenteredtech.com, and we will gladly add it to this resource list!

Key to The Entries

Top-of-Entry Fields
Statewide DeclarationsEach entry begins with a link to any statewide declarations which impact mental health practice in the state — or we could find no such declaration, it says so.
Temporary Practice Rules TableThis table shows what kind of temporary practice rules the state has for each profession. This reflects rules from before COVID-19. This table is about long-term rules and not emergency rules. See our course on cross-border practice for information on how this works.
Fields for Each Profession
Board Statement on COVID-19If a specific profession’s board has put out a statement on the emergency, and we found it, we linked to it here.
Temporary Practice Permitted?A repeat of information from the temporary practice rules table. This reflects rules from before COVID-19. This table is about long-term rules and not emergency rules. See our course on cross-border practice for information on how this works.
Special conditions/requirements?A repeat of information from the temporary practice rules table. This reflects rules from before COVID-19. This table is about long-term rules and not emergency rules. See our course on cross-border practice for information on how this works.
Telemental Health Rules SourceWhere to find rules regarding telemental health for this profession — assuming we could find any. Otherwise, we sometimes use this field to link to rules about licensure requirements (so you can find where the state defines what the rules are for practice from out-of-state professionals.)
This survey does not constitute legal advice. It is incumbent upon all practitioners to perform their responsibility of due diligence in order to determine legal permission to practice under the regulations of the relevant jurisdictional authority prior to undertaking such practice. Users of this survey should independently verify the information contained herein and/or consult with independent legal counsel if the user intends to act upon or otherwise rely on such information. The law and regulations are continuously changing, and because Person Centered Tech utilized other sources to compile the contents of the survey, PCT cannot guarantee the completeness, currency or accuracy of this survey’s contents. This survey is intended purely as an informational resource to help facilitate the beginning of your due diligence process.

Before You Read Any Entries!

Please refer to the entry key above. There is a big difference between “emergency practice rules” and “temporary practice.” This survey shows you information about both the emergency practice rules set up for COVID-19 and the temporary practice rules each state has in their normal-time laws. So be sure you look at the difference, and enjoy the survey!
