It's Official...The Maryland Physical Therapy Compact has been Signed
June 7, 2019
We are officially on the MAP! The Governor has signed the PT Compact legislation and the Board of Examiners is working with the National PT Compact to get the administrative items in order to officially start. The Board of Examiners will be working on setting up a roadshow across the state to roll out the PT Compact and answer any questions. The Physical Therapy Licensure Compact will go into effect October 1,2019
I want to thank all of our members and leaders who came out to Annapolis, made calls, and sent emails to show their support for this legislation.
A Special Thank You!... to JD Sheppard our Director for Government Relations, Kevin Platt our President, Dan Doherty our Lobbyist, and to our members who came out to testify at the hearings: Neil Brown, Carolyn Chanoski, Cara Felter, Michelle Finnegan, and Carol Zehnacker.
Your voice is POWERFUL! Your actions have improved public access to physical therapy service in Maryland. Maryland PTs and PTAs now have the option of obtaining a “compact privilege” to practice or work in another participating state if you meet certain criteria. Congratulations Everyone!
