The information below is collected from state licensure boards or regulatory agencies responsible for regulating the professions of audiology and/or speech-language pathology. The information is reviewed on an annual basis. Please be advised that laws, regulations, and policies may change at any time, so always check with your state for the most up-to-date information.
Louisiana allows telepractice:
Louisiana allows Telehealth Registration instead of licensure, for out-of-state residents, whose out-of-state Audiology or Speech-Language Pathology license does not require supervision, and is an unrestricted and unencumbered license in good standing, and the license is equivalent to the licensure standards in Louisiana. Telehealth registration is limited to telepractice services only in Louisiana.
Telesupervision is permitted for support personnel, clinical fellows and student Interns. Verified with the licensure board.
If a state has not established regulations on telesupervision, then contact the licensure board for further guidance and ask for written verification.
Audiologists and speech-language pathologists should keep in mind that while a state may have passed telepractice reimbursement laws and/or regulations, this does not guarantee that payers will reimburse for these services.
