FIGHTING FOR YOU

New law helps you access healthcare when and where you need it
Florida passed a telehealth law in 2019 that will increase Florida residents’ access to healthcare services. The law will make it easier for family caregivers and their loved ones to seek and get health care services when needed and without the added cost, wasted time and physical barriers related to obtaining transportation. The law allows out-of-state health care practitioners to participate in the delivery of healthcare services if they register with the Department of Health or their respective practices’ boards, act within their scopes of practice and provide their services in states, which belong to a multi-state practice compact in which Florida participates.
