2017 House Bill 4066: Authorize limited interstate medical licensure agreement

Public Act 563 of 2018

Introduced by Rep. Jim Tedder (R) on January 24, 2017
To enter an agreement with other states to facilitate doctors getting licensed in more than one state. The measure is primarily supported by hospitals, and would not eliminate the need for doctors to get a separate license to practice in each state, and would not change current restrictions on the practice of telemedicine. It would also require that doctors hold one of the “board certifications” that some national organizations make money offering, which would exclude most Michigan practitioners.   Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the House Health Policy Committee on January 24, 2017
Reported in the House on September 27, 2017
Without amendment and with the recommendation that the bill pass.
Passed 100 to 6 in the House on October 10, 2017.
