Federation of State Medical Boards
The Federation of State Medical Boards recently released its proposal for creation of an Interstate Licensure Compact for Physicians. If approved by seven state legislatures, the Compact will go into effect and physicians licensed in one compact states can become licensed in another Compact state simply by filling out a request and paying a licensing fee. Actually, it's a little more complicated than that, and our colleagues at the Center for Connected Health Policy have put together an analysis of the proposal to help us all understand the implications of this proposal. Stay tuned and we will keep you apprised of what is going on with the enactment of the compact.
