Interest in and acceptance of telehealth services continues to grow.

In 2023, a key focus of the states has been addressing how to modify existing regulatory infrastructures sustaining the provision of telehealth services to support the continued use of these services in a post-public health emergency world.

However, modifications to telehealth services also increase the potential for fraudulent behavior and enforcement activity.

Providers need to monitor developments in federal and state laws, regulations, and policies to capitalize on telehealth opportunities while staying compliant with applicable laws.

Since 2016, Epstein Becker Green has researched, compiled, and analyzed state-specific content relating to the regulatory requirements for professional mental/behavioral health practitioners and stakeholders seeking to provide telehealth-focused services. We are pleased to release our latest compilation of state telehealth laws, regulations, and policies within the mental/behavioral health practice disciplines.

While other state-focused telehealth surveys exist, this survey focuses solely on the remote delivery of behavioral health care services. With changes rapidly taking place, it is vital to keep this important resource up to date as the legal and regulatory landscape continues to evolve.

Download our complimentary app and learn about:

  • How states continue to push the boundaries of existing telehealth policies
  • A continued recognition by the states of the benefits of telehealth
  • More focus on telefraud and enforcement at the federal and state levels
  • General telemental/telebehavioral provisions across the 50 states plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico

The app’s editors and contributors are grateful to Grace Balian, Paralegal Manager, and Epstein Becker Green 2023 Summer Associates Bailey Cremeans, ​Sara Devaraj, Hailey Genaw, Lorrin Melanson, Max Schneider, and Jean-Claude Velasquez for their assistance.
