We are not aware of any specific rules and regulations of the practice of telemental health services for Counselors.
However, this is an important time for TeleMental Health policy in Florida:
Florida passed the CS/CS/HB 7087: Health Care bill which created a Telehealth Advisory Council within Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). This new advisory council is tasked with reporting policy recommendations to the Governor and the Legislature on how to increase the use and accessibility of telehealth services.
We recommend all Florida mental health clinicians get involved by becoming knowledgeable in telemental health competencies, and filling out the survey on http://floridasmentalhealthprofessions.gov/
