 Legislative Chambers in South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming Pass the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact

Legislative chambers in South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming have passed the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact. This new legislation would create an expedited multi-state licensing pathway for qualified physicians, while expanding access to care for patients across the nation.

The Compact will reduce regulatory barriers for physicians, while ensuring the necessary state regulatory oversight to protect patients. The final model Interstate Medical Licensure Compact legislation was released in September 2014, and since then, 13 states have formally introduced the legislation in their legislative chambers and more than 25 state medical and osteopathic boards have publicly expressed support for the Compact.


The 13 states that have formally introduced Interstate Compact legislation include- Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming.

The new compact system will help physicians improve access to healthcare for patients in multiple jurisdictions and help underserved populations receive the care they need.
