Opening borders to health care providers

Presented by CSG's National Center for Interstate Compacts

Wednesday, Aug. 13, 2-5 p.m.

 
Several medical professions have been working with CSG’s National Center on Interstate Compacts to explore the use of compacts to promote license portability to ensure access to high quality health care. These efforts have the potential to help facilitate telemedicine and widen access to a variety of medical services. Licensing compacts also provide a mechanism to ensure state regulatory agencies maintain their licensing and disciplinary authority. This session will feature a discussion about the proposed compacts and their potential to enhance access to medical care across the states.
