Covid-19 and Other Out-of-State Practice: What's Legal and Ethical
Fri , 12/11/2020, 11a-1pm, Nationwide Webinar
Are COVID-19 emergency practice across state lines regulations permanent? Did the federal government relax practice across state lines? Did Georgia relax practice across state lines? Are states beginning to reverse their COVID-19 emergency Policies?
For 7 years I wrote, interpreted and enforced Georgia licensing board rules and law. This 2 NBCC Ethics Hour webinar provides information you are not likely to find anywhere else. You will interact with licensees from around the nation. It is the result of years of interaction with state counseling board officials on telemental health rules and law. Can you deliver telemental health across state lines?
The short answer is practice in any state without a license is illegal. However states are streamlining interstate licensing and capabilities to deliver telehealth through various legal and regulatory means. Come and learn more.
