Telemental / Telebehavioral Survey

Epstein Becker Green’s 2017 Appendix to the 2016 50-State Survey of Telemental/Telebehavioral Health Laws in the United States

Epstein Becker Green is pleased to present the 2017 Appendix to the 50-State Survey of Telemental/Telebehavioral Health, a groundbreaking, comprehensive survey on the laws, regulations, and regulatory policies impacting “telemental health”—i.e., mental health care delivered via interactive audio or video, computer programs, or mobile applications—in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

While other telehealth studies exist, the 50-state survey, originally released in 2016, focuses solely on the remote delivery of behavioral health care. And, with changes rapidly taking place in this industry, Epstein Becker Green recognized the benefit of providing the complimentary 2017 Appendix to friends of the firm.

Compiled by attorneys in Epstein Becker Green's Telehealth & Telemedicine practice, the 2017 Appendix to the 50-state survey continues to track the rapid growth of telemental health and the increasingly complex legal issues associated with this trend. Additionally, the appendix provides a source for state-by-state coverage of legal issues related to telemental health, such as:

  • Definitions of “telehealth” or “telemedicine”
  • Licensure requirements
  • Governing bodies
  • Reimbursement and coverage issues
  • The establishment of the provider-patient relationship
  • Provider prescribing authority
  • Accepted modalities for delivery (e.g., telephone and video) to meet standards of care
