PT INTERSTATE LICENSURE COMPACT MAY GO LIVE IN 2018

First reported by PT In Motion, The State of Washington became the tenth state to join the Interstate Licensure Compact for Physical Therapy (PTLC).  The tenth state is key because that is the threshold for the Compact to become effective.  

Once fully live, the PTLC will allow PTs in one compact state to practice in another compact state without having to obtain another state PT license.
The ten states are: Washington, Arizona, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Tennessee, and Utah. 

Before the PTTC can go fully live, a Commission must be developed.  The Commission will establish the rules governing interstate practice.  It is expected that it will take about one year for the Commission to be established and the final rules promulgated.

APTA is optimistic that more states will want to join the PTLC now that the ten state threshold has been reached.  States that are interested in the PTLC should contact the APTA state affairs staff.

  1. Dear MU

    I have a license in state of Oregon. Does this mean in 2018, I would be able to practice in state of Kentuky without having to go through the endorsement procedure?

    Thank you

    1. Yes- it seems likely that you will be able to do just that. We will not know for sure until the Commission is in place and the rules are released.
