WELCOME TO PT COMPACT

 

The Physical Therapy Compact is an agreement between members to provide a state-based collaborative approach to protect the public by increasing consumer access to physical therapy services by reducing regulatory barriers to interstate mobility and cross-state practice.

An Alternative to Licensing

The Physical Therapy Compact allows eligible licensed physical therapists to practice and licensed physical therapist assistants to work in a Compact member state, other than their home state, without going through the usual process for licensure in the remote state.

PT and PTA licensees who meet all eligibility requirements can purchase a Compact Privilege in a Compact member state and, in most cases, start practicing physical therapy in the other state almost immediately. The PT Compact’s online system makes the process of purchasing and renewing a Compact Privilege in other states simple.

The PT Compact’s system also makes it easy for patients to verify the status of a Compact Privilege for their PT or PTA.
