**How is COVID-19 affecting the State Medical Boards**
As with the rest of the World, Covid-19 is impacting the various State Medical Boards and the time it is taking to obtain a Medical License.
The most obvious effect of the virus on the State Medical Boards has been its' effect on State Medical Board Staffing and Staff Availability. The Boards, like every one else, has not been able to fully staff themselves to Pre-Covid Levels. Many employees have quit. More are working from home. Hiring new employees, while the Federal Government is effectively paying people to stay home, has been a challenge for them. Those who are working from home, are not able to completely perform their responsibilities. They do not have access to physical mail or physical files. They can only log into the system remotely. Mail isn't being processed in a quickly as it had been before Covid by the State Medical Boards. This all in effect translates into a slower, more inefficient process.
During this pandemic, the volume of applications being filed by physicians has increased 200% from 2019 numbers. Why? Covid-19 in effect put a spot light on Telemedicine. Telemedicine was the solution that the major health providers turned to to allow quarantined patients access to health care. This has increased demand for Multi-State Licensing by physicians who are tied to major health providers. As such, these physicians are entering the licensure market and filing applications with the various State Medical Boards. The impact of this has been that the State Medical Boards are receiving applications from physicians who never would have filed them prior to Covid. It is creating a Back Log that is going to flow over into 2022.
Telemedicine's perception in the general market place has been main-streamed. 2020 was the first year that many in the general public used telemedicine to see a physician. What was first marketed as a means to provide medical provider access to rural patients, has now been put forth as a way to provide medical care for those who are self-quarantining. This has created a lot of buzz in the medical community and there is a Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) by many physicians who never would have considered going into Telemedicine. In 2003 we received our first 50 State order from a physician. The year that followed we put 2 physicians into 50 States. In 2020 we put 41 physicians into all 50 States at once. We are on schedule to hit 75 physicians into all 50 States for 2021. The impact of this has been that the State Medical Boards are receiving applications from physicians who never would have filed them prior to Covid. It is creating a Back Log that is going to flow over into 2022.
Covid has also impacted the way that State Medical Boards are licensing. Out of fear of handling contaminated forms/documents, some Boards are no longer handling paper. The Colorado and Delaware Medical Boards are two that come to mind. They want everything sent by email or online to them. This however is not a bad thing. Paper is inefficient but necessary in the licensure process for the majority of the Medical Boards. Being able to electronically handle the process does provide a more efficient process.
So as you are considering going into Telemedicine, please understand that you will need to view the licensure process as a marathon, not a sprint. Plan ahead and give yourself enough time. There is a saying that holds true in licensure, "Your lack of planning does not constitute my emergency". When you apply for a license in an over stressed environment, the process is not going to move through as fast or quickly as you will need it to. So give yourself enough time in these crazy times in which we now live and be kind to those who are helping you with the process or control the keys to the doors which you must pass through.

Are you a Physician who is in Colorado and would like to be on the Colorado Medical Board? See below:
I am the Program Director for the Colorado Medical Board. The Colorado Medical Board will have a medical doctor position open this May 2022. The Board is specifically looking for a M.D. rural representative. I need some assistantace for any referral for a Medical Doctor located in a rural area within Colorado.
For your reference, the Board reviews applications and cases, holds hearings and aids the State Attorney General's Office with the violation of any provisions of the Medical Practice Act. The Board consists of seventeen members appointed by the governor: eleven physicians (three holding a degree of doctor of osteopathy), two physician assistants, and four public at large who have no financial or professional association with the medical profession. The licensees are required to have a license in good standing and actively engaged in the practice of their profession in this state for at least three years preceding their appointment.
Board meetings are mandatory and are held mid-month each month, and the full board meets quarterly (August, November, February and May). Members are volunteers and are appointed by the governor for 4 years (one term) and may be eligible to serve two terms.
Please contact me if you are a rural MD or know of someone that is and may be interested.
Thank you for your time!
