Quick & Efficient Telemedicine State Licensing with Wheel & Medallion

Getting licensed to practice telemedicine in multiple states is hard work. Get help from a new partnership between Wheel & Medallion and save $50 on your medical licensing service.

If you want to thrive in telehealth, getting licensed in multiple states is key. Propelled by increased patient demand for virtual care prompted by the pandemic and a personal desire for career flexibility, physicians and nurse practitioners are pursuing telemedicine practice in greater numbers than ever before. Telehealth truly offers a new way for clinicians to work—providing healthcare on your terms, on your schedule, from home. But more clinicians jumping into the telehealth workforce also means greater competition for telehealth positions.

Getting licensed to practice medicine in multiple states is the number one way to get hired in telehealth.

We recommend that clinicians secure multiple state licenses to be considered for any telehealth position with Wheel. This ensures you a steady stream of patient consults and shows virtual care companies you are a versatile provider with the motivation and drive to deliver broad patient coverage. Unfortunately, securing licenses takes time, requirements and process change often and from state to state, and it costs money upfront.

That’s why we partnered with trusted medical licensing company, Medallion, to offer discounted medical licensing services for prospective telehealth clinicians.

Recently, we spoke to a panel of experienced telehealth nurse practitioners and physicians about the challenges and tips they had for securing multiple state licenses and working in telehealth. The biggest takeaway? Getting licensed is HARD, but well worth it.

“Getting my licenses has been an investment, but a profitable investment. It’s made my life easier and allowed me to transition from a clinical practice that I was struggling with to a completely virtual practice where I choose my own hours and choose my own jobs.”
- Chet Tharpe, MD, actively licensed in 36 states

While it won’t guarantee you a telehealth position, it can greatly increase your chances. And most of our clinicians say that getting more licenses pays off. There really isn’t a magic number of licenses to have, but your demand as a clinician will increase exponentially the more you procure.

“I should have 17 licenses by the end of the year, and it’s all been pretty worth it. It opens up new opportunities and allows you to stay at home with your family. I haven’t come across any disadvantages to doing all the work for multi-state licensure. It’s definitely given back to me more than I’ve put in.”
- Ed Henson, APRN, actively licensed in 8 states
