Missouri provides waiver to expand the use of telehealth for treatment of COVID-19
The state of Missouri is waiving a state statute (191.1145.3) for individuals licensed in other states. This will provide us with the ability to expand the use of telehealth to better serve the growing needs of our citizens during the COVID-19 public health crisis.
Health care providers must have a license to practice in their state for their respective professions and be in good standing. The waiver will allow them to use telehealth in order to collaborate in the treatment of patients.
