Those wishing to practice medicine in the state of Indiana need to obtain a probationary, provisional, temporary medical permit, temporary fellowship permit, or full medical license.
The Indiana Administrative Code prohibits medical treatment, including the issuance of a prescription, based solely on an online questionnaire or consultation. Prior to providing treatment, including issuing a prescription, through electronic means, a physician must conduct a documented patient evaluation, including a history and a physical evaluation.
