What are the chances?
I see this as needed but setting up a huge States Rights battle in Congress that could become a very divisive issue.

What are the chances of "reciprocal licensure among states or national licensure for telehealth" when "for decades, state medical boards have made it difficult to deliver telehealth by requiring physicians to be licensed in the same states in which their patients live or reside"?

If we ever allow telehealth across state lines, what about international borders? How long will it take to resolve these issues? My guess is upwards of 5 years, but I hope it's much sooner.

I hope this goes through so it enables more telehealth innovation. It's happening in telepharmacy as well. Every state has a little bit different interpretation or nothing at all. 


I would love to see an article about telepharmacy and how it differs from state-to-state.
