Executive Order Providing Exceptions to Licensing Requirements in Indiana
On March 30, Governor Holcomb signed Executive Order 20-13. A copy of this Order can be found by clicking here. Among other things, Order 20-13 allows the Department of Health to open, staff, and equip temporary facilities if Indiana's hospital's become at or near capacity; creates limited exceptions to Indiana's licensing requirements for health care workers and creates a registration requirement for those workers who qualify for an exception; orders the postponement or cancellation of elective and non-urgent procedures for the purpose of conserving personal protective equipment; and suspends some of the state law rules regarding telemedicine, including allowing the prescribing of controlled substances to patients without an in-person medical exam and dispensing with the requirement that the patient already has been seen, in-person, by another licensed Indiana provider who has established a treatment plan.
As additional orders are issued at both the federal and state level, it is important to remember that many areas of the law regarding medical care are regulated by both, and that relief from a federal or statement requirement does not inherently involve relief from the other.
