LSBME Amends Telemedicine Rules

The Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners (LSBME) recently amended its Rules governing telemedicine so that it would not inadvertently prevent physicians from prescribing medication or providing other healthcare services to their patients who may be vacationing or temporarily outside Louisiana (to the extent such activities or practices are lawful and permitted by medical licensing authorities in these jurisdictions). Effective August 20, 2019, the Rule provides: "A patient receiving medical services by telemedicine may be in any location at the time that the services are received.”

Louisiana Administrative Code Title 46: Part XLV. §7505 C. (Patient Relationship; Standard of Care; Location of Participants)
