Telemedicine Business Registry

COVID-19 Notice:

During the COVID-19 public health emergency, a qualified provider may deliver telehealth and telemedicine services upon the division’s receipt of a complete application.

An online application is available through your myAlaska account. If you have already submitted an application and payment, please do not submit an additional application as you will be charged twice.


The governor has issued a mandate or the board has issued guidance for this program.

Please click here to read how this may affect you.

Included on this website, you’ll find applications pertaining to the Telemedicine Business Registry (TBR), Frequently Asked Questions, and regulations relevant to this registry. All businesses engaged in or planning to engage in telemedicine services must register with our Department.

Please note, telemedicine and telehealth services are often used synonymously, however, the definition of telemedicine services is given in general government statute, AS 44.33.381 and is provided below for your reference:

"Telemedicine services" means the delivery of health care services using the transfer of medical data through audio, visual, or data communications that are performed over two or more locations by a provider who is physically separated from the recipient of the health care services. AS 44.33.381

If you provide telemedicine services to Alaska-based clients a valid Alaska business license is required. To register with our Department, please provide your Alaska Business License number on the Telemedicine Business Registry License application. Applications for a business license may be obtained through the Business Licensing Section.


The Telemedicine Business Registry is for businesses only - one registration is sufficient to cover all health care services your business provides. Individuals (professional licensees) only apply for placement on the telemedicine registry if they have a sole proprietorship business license.

For more information, please see our FAQ Page specifically #7.
