PT Compact Privileges Begin October 3
The Physical Therapy Compact Commission (PT Compact) is pleased to announce that compact privileges will be available for the state of Wisconsin starting Monday, October 3, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. ET. This will bring the total number of states issuing compact privileges to twenty-six.
Physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs) whose home state is Ari-zona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mis-sissippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin will be able to go to ptcompact.org to verify their eligibility and purchase compact privileges. Practitioners can purchase compact privileges for one or more of the other remote states, giving them the ability to provide physical therapy services in those states.
Interested PTs and PTAs should review information on state jurisprudence requirements, associated fees, and waivers. Additional resources, such as eligibility requirements, a guide to the purchasing process, and an FAQ are also available.
The PT Compact anticipates many more of its member states will be ready to begin issuing compact privileges in the coming months. As more states issue compact privileges, the PT Compact will share announcements on ptcompact.org, on Twitter, with the news media, and via the PT Compact email subscription list.
The PT Compact is an easy, fast, efficient, and inexpensive alternative to the standard li-censing process to obtain the privilege to practice in a remote state. However, not all PTs and PTAs may be eligible to participate. For more information on the eligibility requirements and rules for compact privilege seekers and holders please go to ptcompact.org.
