Telepractice Statement for Minnesota SLPs and Audologists

What is telepractice?

Telepractice typically involves the application of videoconferencing to provide or support health care delivery and is viewed as a mode of delivery of health care services, not a separate form of practice.

Is licensure required in Minnesota to provide telepractice?

The provision of speech-pathology or audiology services in Minnesota through telepractice, electronic, or other means, regardless of the location of the speech-language pathologist or audiologist, shall constitute the practice of speech-language pathology or audiology and shall require Minnesota licensure.

Note: Please be aware that practitioners who provide services via telepractice must comply with privacy requirements established by federal law. It is the responsibility of the practitioner to ensure that the mode of delivery they choose protects patient privacy.
