  1. Health providers need appropriate licensure to conduct telehealth across state borders.

  2. Reciprocity allows health providers who are actively licensed in one state to use telehealth to practice remotely within another state’s borders.

  3. States may opt into interstate licensure compacts that allow for qualified providers to voluntarily join. This pathway helps reduce redundancies across state licensure processes.
