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.

The eligibility window for all FSBPT administered law exams has been extended from 60 days to 90 days to allow for greater flexibility in scheduling. The 90-day window will continue until further notice.
