Governor DeSantis recently signed telehealth legislation which establishes standards of practice for telehealth services, including patient evaluations, record-keeping, and controlled substances prescribing. In addition, the telehealth legislation authorizes out-of-state health care professionals to use telehealth to deliver health care services to Florida patients if they register with the Department of Health (DOH) and meet certain eligibility requirements. DOH expects the application for out-of-state providers to be available in early fall 2019. For more information regarding the new telehealth law visit the DOH website.
