In light of COVID-19, many jurisdictions are offering guidance to physical therapy practitioners using telehealth during the current crisis. To provide and bill for physical therapy services via telehealth, a PT or PTA must verify that they are practicing legally and ethically in the jurisdiction in which the patient is located. The physical therapy regulatory board is the ultimate authority on the licensure/compact privilege requirements to provide physical therapy services in the jurisdiction.
At this time FSBPT recommends individual practitioners refer to the state board(s) in which they plan to provide physical therapy services for the most accurate and current information.
