Physicians and other medical professionals will no longer need a new license to care for patients across state lines, according to a statement made by Vice President Mike Pence during a White House press briefing on March 18.
The briefing touched on the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus outbreak. The administration has taken several steps in recent days to relax regulations in an effort to streamline access to care as the outbreak spreads across the country. For example, the government will no longer enforce penalties for violating certain aspects of HIPAA and HHS has expanded access to telehealth for Medicare beneficiaries.
