Hello, thank you for using Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I am the attorney who will be assisting you with this question. I am a fully licensed attorney with over a decade of experience representing clients. Please remember that this is an informational service only, so the answers that I provide are not given as official legal advice and this does not create an attorney/client relationship.

Is the client maintaining his permanent residence in Florida?

Customer
he is

Great. Yes, you can conduct the virtual sessions with him. You would only need to worry about Mexican licensing laws if you were going to perform sessions with Mexican residents.

Customer
Can you please tell me which law would allow me to do a remote session with my client traveling in Mexico? (Florida resident)
Customer
Because he pays via insurance - I’ll have to put exactly under which regulation I’m working

Geoff, Expert

There is not a law that "allows" it or "disallows" it. Mexican telehealth laws only apply to residents of Mexico. So, you can perform a telehealth session with a resident of Florida under your Florida license.

It's the same as if you did a telehealth session with him if he was just in a different part of Florida.

I'd go with (2)(d) that permits the provider and patient to be in separate locations.
