COVID-Related Physician Licensure Exemption - Idaho Code 54-1804(1)(d) sets forth a licensure exemption for physicians during a time of disaster. The Governor's August 17, 2021 Proclamation declared a state of disaster emergency in Idaho. During this time of disaster, physicians who are licensed to practice in another state or country and in good standing can practice medicine via telehealth or in person in Idaho pursuant to Idaho Code 54-1804(1)(d).

Please note, this ability to practice in Idaho is limited to the duration of the state of disaster emergency. Once the state of disaster emergency is lifted, physicians who are not licensed in Idaho must cease practicing. To ensure continuity of patient care, please pursue licensure in Idaho or prepare a plan to transition patient care once the disaster emergency is lifted.
