The Myth of Location

Posted on: 11/18/2022

Since the advent of telemedicine, and with its expansion during the pandemic, legal jurisdictions have maintained that the patient's location, not that of the provider, determines which jurisdiction's laws apply. A provider located in New York must have a Connecticut license if the patient is located in Connecticut.  Although this may sound logical, it can prove impractical, especially in metropolitan areas near state lines where people frequently travel among two or more states in the course of a typical day, sometimes living in one state but working in another.
