License Renewals

For those who have malpractice through our Volunteer and Retired Providers Program (VRP) and are only using your professional license for unpaid work at one of our VRP sites, you can renew your license at no cost. The Department of Health (DOH) Credentialing has requested that renewals be submitted fewer than 90 days before expiration. There has been a change of personnel managing the VRP renewals at the DOH so please direct any questions to Kris Ives here.

Malpractice Insurance

If you were active in the program in 2022, your malpractice insurance auto-renewed in July. Sites and volunteers can request a copy of their updated certificates here.

Information on the program can be found on the Volunteer and Providers Program page.
