On June 21, 2016, Governor Walker signed in to law SB74, which immediately enacted the state’s new Telemedicine Business Registry.
"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)
Alaska Statutes are passed by the legislature. Regulations (also called the Alaska Administrative Code) are rules adopted by the department to implement, interpret, and make specific the statutes. Both statutes and regulations have the force of law.
The Application for Telemedicine Business Registration is authorized by AS 44.33.381.
Licensees are responsible for knowledge of all statutes and regulations pertaining to their profession. AS 08.01-08.03 and 12 AAC 02 apply to all professions regulated by the division.
If you would like to receive notice of all proposed regulation changes for your program, please send a request in writing with your name, preferred contact method (mail or email), and the program you want to be updated on to:
