Telehealth

Posted in Latest News on July 1, 2019.

Florida passed Telehealth, Chapter 2019-137, Laws of Florida, which establishes standards of practice for telehealth services, including patient evaluations, record-keeping, and controlled substances prescribing. The law also authorizes out-of-state health care practitioners to perform telehealth services for patients in Florida upon meeting certain eligibility requirements and registering with the department of health.

The Department is currently working on the implementation of the Telehealth law and expects the application for out-of-state providers to be available in early fall 2019. Please continue to check the website for updates.
