Licensure by Endorsement

Our Direct Access bill wasn’t the only exciting legislation the Governor signed last month. The process for which out of state PTs and PTAs wishing to obtain an Illinois license by endorsement just got a little easier and quicker.

SB3395 was signed on August 14th and reduces the administrative burden when applying for licensure by endorsement in Illinois, particularly for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who have been licensed in another jurisdiction for 10 years or more without discipline.

Prior to this being signed, out of state PTs and PTAs wishing to obtain an Illinois license would on average have to wait 6-8 weeks for their license as the IDFPR would have to verify that all the requirements for their previous states licensure were substantially equivalent to the requirements in Illinois.
