Wyoming OT Telehealth

 In order to provide occupational therapy services via telehealth to a client in Wyoming, the OT providing services to a client must have a valid and current license issued by the Board. Wyoming licensed OT using telehealth technology with a client in another state may also be required to be licensed in the state in which the client receives those services and must adhere to those state licensure laws.

When providing occupational therapy services via telehealth, an OT shall determine whether an in-person evaluation is necessary and make every attempt to ensure that a OT is available if an on-site visit is required.

The OT is responsible for determining whether any aspect of the provision of services may be conducted via telehealth or must be conducted in person. An OT shall consider at a minimum:

    • The complexity of the client's condition;
    • His or her own knowledge skills and abilities;
    • The client's context and environment;
    • The nature and complexity of the intervention;
    • The pragmatic requirements of the practice setting; and
    • The capacity and quality of the technological interface.

The OT shall obtain informed consent of the delivery of service via telehealth from the client prior to initiation of occupational therapy services via telehealth and maintain documentation in the client's health record.

An OT or OTA providing occupational therapy services via telehealth must:

    • Exercise the same standard of care when providing occupational therapy services via telehealth as with any other mode of delivery of occupational therapy services.

An OTA or limited licensee providing occupational therapy services via telehealth may be supervised in person or virtually through a live audio and video connection.
