PSYPACT states are those U.S. states, districts, and territories that have joined an interstate compact designed to facilitate the practice of telepsychology across state boundaries.

As of 1 July 2022, thirty-one states, including Idaho (where I live), are PSYPACT participating states.

If a veteran lives in a PSYPACT state, then I can conduct a TeleCompensation and Pension (Tele-C&P) disability evaluation with the veteran.

PSYPACT states as of 1 July 2022:

  1. Alabama
  2. Arizona
  3. Arkansas
  4. Colorado
  5. Delaware
  6. District of Columbia
  7. Georgia

Not in a PSYPACT State?

If a veteran does not live in a PSYPACT state then I recommend finding an expert licensed to practice psychology in the veteran's state of residence.

Similarly, if a veteran does not feel comfortable using video conferencing platforms like Zoom, then finding a local expert who can evaluate the veteran in person would be the best option.


Note that VA uses the terms telemental health examination and Tele-C&P exam interchangeably.
