Telehealth Registration Requirement (07/27/2023)

During COVID Vermont enacted special provisions that allowed health care professionals to practice telehealth with patients located in Vermont. Initially telehealth practice was allowed with no requirement for a license or registration. Beginning in 2022, the law was modified to require registration for temporary telehealth registration. At the time that this is posted (late July 2023), the COVID-19 temporary telehealth registration is still available. It will continue to be available until sometime in late 2023 or early 2024. The exact date when this option will expire has not been determined. That is because the COVID-19 telehealth registration option will be in place for 90 days after administrative rules regarding new, permanent telehealth credential options become effective. You may still register to practice telehealth but understand that this will be ending within the next several months. Those who have a telehealth registration will be notified by email when the end date of the COVID-19 telehealth registration option is determined. 

Before you begin your registration, please read the "Instructions for Temporary Telehealth Registration" (click the link below). We recommend you print the instructions to use while you complete the registration process.

Anyone who is interested in learning more about the new options for telehealth practice that will soon be available can review the law, Chapter 56 of Title 26 of Vermont Statutes Annotated. Once the regulations regarding the new options are formally approved, we will be posting more information.
