Action Alert: NO on HB 2502, Interstate Compact

The Interstate Medical Licensure Compact “may seem like a positive step to those who don’t have the time to look at it very closely,” explains CATO adjunct scholar Shirley Svorny, PhD.  She continues, “[t]he compact is being promoted, disingenuously, as addressing license portability and access to interstate telemedicine…. Adding the Compact Commission creates another layer of bureaucracy and costs.”

Last Wednesday, HB 2502, the bill to push Arizona into the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact, narrowly passed through the AZ Senate HHS Committee after a contentious hearing.

Now the bill will move on to the full Senate if it can make it through the Senate Rules Committee.
