Currently, there are 16 states that can be declared as a physician’s State of Primary Licensure and can issue Letters of Qualification (LOQ): Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
Once the LOQ is issued, the physician can apply to any current Compact Member State. There are currently 20 member states that can issue licenses via this method: Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
There are two additional Compact Member States where the IMLC has passed, but implementation has been delayed. These states are currently unable to issue licenses via the IMLC method, but that will change in the near future. These are Pennsylvania and Tennessee.
Getting simultaneously licensed in Compact Member States is now quick and easy, and Barton Associates’ licensing and credentialing team is here and ready to help with every step of the process.
