Understanding State Exemptions When Providing
Second Opinions Across State Lines
Back by Popular Demand!
Previously Recorded: November 2nd
In the United States, individual states and territories regulate the practice of medicine within their own borders. Unless there is an exception, a provider must be licensed in the state in which the patient is located in order to deliver a medical diagnosis or to prescribe treatment to a patient in a specific jurisdiction. Going through the licensure process is burdensome and expensive, effectively impeding all but the most determined physician from seeking this legal authority to practice beyond his or her state’s borders. However, this is not always necessary. Many exemptions enable providers the flexibility to help patients under specific circumstances.
Les Trachtman, JD, MBA, Managing Director of Purview, and Christopher Schwartz, MD, Purview's Medical Director, discuss the industry's most pressing questions on cross-state licensure for second opinions. This session begins with a brief overview of Purview's latest white paper, The Legal Reality of Issuing Second Opinions to Out of State Patients in 2023, and then opens up to a live Q&A.
