In my opinion, states should have the right to know who is practicing telemedicine in their area and what methods they employ. As it stands now, the "Model Act" of 1996 assures that while physicians have the right to practice telemedicine, the state is at liberty to decide how often doing so falls into the category of "regularly and frequently."
