This is BS, as it will only enable more diversion. There's no real shortage of doctors, at least in most specialties, but there is a problem with access as the money in Madison has driven doctors to urban centers, shortchanging reimbursement and the value of suburban and rural care. Nevertheless, the patients do have an obligation to configure their circumstances to fit within the treatment regimen they have been prescribed. It is the states right, and should stay so, to regulate licensing of doctors. If you want to practice across state lines get the second medical license! Simple, not complex, and modest expense. If you can't afford it you shouldn't be doing it.
