FAQs for Licensees - COVID-19

The Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) is committed to being transparent during this COVID-19 pandemic by providing up-to-date, accurate information. As an organization, we are committing to following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations while working to minimize the impact on candidates, schools, and member jurisdictions.


Can I use my compact privileges for telephone visits?

A compact privilege is the legal equivalent of a license to practice within the state. You need to review that state’s physical therapy practice act to determine the legal requirements for telephone visits.

Have there been changes to the LAW exam?

The current window to take an FSBPT administered law exam is sixty days. We will temporarily expand this window to ninety days to allow for more flexibility in scheduling. All pending law exam candidates will receive an updated ATT letter with an eligibility start date of May 1, 2020. In addition, all newly approved law exam candidates will receive the ninety-day window until further notice is given.
