No. Although your state passing the Compact is an important step, it does not automatically approve your license for use in other states. Practitioners must apply for the privilege to practice in each state through the Compact. We expect applications for Compact privileges to open in early 2025.
For you to practice in other states through the Compact, your home state and the state(s) in which you wish to practice must be Compact members. If this is not the case, the best way for you to practice in other states is by obtaining a license through the individual state’s regular licensing process.
Currently, the member states in the compact are working to establish the structures necessary to implement the compact, including the data system. After the data system is completed, licensed professionals will be able to apply for the privilege to practice in other states.
The cost of a Compact privilege is set by each state. Once states are ready to issue privileges, more information on the exact cost of a privilege for that state will be available.
