Physical Therapy Licensure Compact

Physical Therapy Licensure Compact

The Physical Therapy Licensure Compact (PTLC) is a state-based solution to the challenges of interstate licensure portability for physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs). It will improve patient access to physical therapy services by giving eligible licensees in participating states a faster, less expensive alternative to traditional licensure.

Texas joined the PTLC with the enactment of the enabling statutes in Senate Bill 317 that was signed into law by Governor Greg Abbott on June 9, 2017. The PT Board elected Chair Harvey Aikman as the delegate to the inaugural meeting of the PTLC which was held June 14, 2017 via WebEx. Mr. Aikman was elected as a Member-At-Large on the Executive Board and will be serving on the Rules Task Force.

Two task forces, Rules and Bylaws, will begin developing draft rules and bylaws that will govern the operations of the Compact. The full Compact Commission will review and adopt the rules and bylaws that will govern the PTLC from the recommendations presented by the task forces at its meeting in New Mexico this November. Anticipated rollout of compact privileges for licensees is sometime during the first half of 2018.
