New! Massage Therapist Licensing

A new state law requires that all practicing massage therapists in Alaska must be licensed, effective July 1, 2017.

Effective July 1, 2015, licensure is required for practitioners who:

  • Have not practiced massage therapy, as defined in AS 08.61.100, or
  • Have practiced massage therapy in the state but are not currently:
    • Licensed to practice massage therapy in another state or country that has licensing requirements that are substantially equal to or greater than the requirements of this state; or
    • Certified by a certification entity approved by the board
     

Massage therapists who work for a Premera-contracted provider must be credentialed and added under the contract once they obtain their license. Premera will no longer allow claims for services rendered by the licensed massage therapists to be billed under the supervising provider’s name.

Independent massage therapists who want to contract with Premera need to complete a credentialing application and request a contract. For more information, visit State of Alaska Professional Licensing.
