This is known as a “point of service” issue, and the answer depends greatly on the state in question. It is commonly accepted that when a Provider uses telehealth to conduct treatment they are “traveling through cyberspace” to the residence of their patient. This means that the Provider is bound to the laws and regulations of the state in which the Patient resides.
Mental health Providers are legally allowed to deliver treatment to Patients who live in a state in which they hold a current license. We recommend you check with the licensing authority in other states to determine if you are eligible to treat residents of that state as well. Providers can also obtain licenses in multiple states through the interstate licensure compact (should inquire with the governing body in your state).
Each Provider, and not metaMe, is responsible for making sure they are properly licensed to conduct behavioral telehealth sessions.
