Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact (PSYPACT)

Approved in February 2015 by the ASPPB Board of Directors, the Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact (PSYPACT) has been created to facilitate telehealth and temporary in-person, face-to-face practice of psychology across jurisdictional boundaries. PSYPACT is an interstate compact, which is an agreement between states to enact legislation and enter into a contract for a specific, limited purpose or address a particular policy issue.

PSYPACT allows telepsychology practice between the jurisdictions that are members of PSYPACT. Click here to view map of states participating in PSYPACT. For example, Nevada Psychologists (already approved to participate in PSYPACT) can provide services via telehealth to citizens of Utah and Arizona (PSYPACT enacted), but not California. For anyone that is currently licensed in Nevada, telepsychology is already allowed within the state. So, to practice telepsychology within Nevada, you do not need to apply through PSYPACT.
