The New York State Board of Medicine convened last week to address inquiries from physicians licensed in states other than New York who provide telehealth services to New Yorkers. Board members discussed potential changes to a part of Section 6526 of the State Education Law that currently permits non-New York State-licensed physicians to practice medicine within the State only when they live near the State border and do not operate a practice within the State. Board members agreed that this part of the law was developed before the use of telemedicine and should be reconsidered. No formal recommendations were proposed, and the Board will likely revisit the topic at future meetings. The next meeting is scheduled for December.
