Regulations Governing the Practice of Physical Therapy [18 VAC 112 ‑ 20]
Action:
Implementation of the Physical Therapy Compact
 
General Information
Action Summary The amendments to Chapter 20 are adopted as necessary for participation by Virginia in the Physical Therapy Compact which allows a physical therapist or physical therapist assistant who has obtained a compact privilege to practice in the Commonwealth without a Virginia license. To comply with Compact rules, all applicants for licensure are required to have criminal background checks, and holders of a compact privilege are required to adhere to the laws and regulations governing practice in the compact state in which they practice. A member state may set a fee that is charged to obtain and renew a compact privilege in that state. An amendment will set the fee in Virginia at $50, which is similar to the fee charged by other states.
