Health care practitioners with an out-of-state license or certification that falls under section 456.47(1)(b), F.S, qualify for an out-of-state telehealth provider registration number when they meet the following requirements:

  • Submit the completed Application for Out-of-State Telehealth Provider Registration
  • Maintain an active, unencumbered license from another state, the District of Columbia, or a possession or territory of the United States (license verification is required)
  • Not have a pending investigation, discipline, or revocation on your license within the last five years
  • Designate a duly appointed registered agent for service of process in Florida (the agent’s name must be on the Registered Agent Name List maintained by the Division of Corporations)
  • Maintain liability coverage or financial responsibility for telehealth services provided to patients in Florida in an amount equal to or greater than Florida health care practitioner requirements
  • Not open a Florida office or provide in-person health care services to Florida patients
  • Only use a Florida-licensed pharmacy, registered nonresident pharmacy, or outsourcing facility to dispense medicinal drugs to patients in Florida (pharmacists only)

The out-of-state telehealth provider registration is for health care practitioners licensed outside of Florida ONLY. Florida licensees can already provide telehealth services to patients in Florida that they can treat in person.
