To allow healthcare professionals the ability to focus on patient care during the COVID-19 outbreak, the Secretary of Health extended expiration dates for licenses due for renewal between April 1, 2020, and September 30, 2020. All fees were waived during this period.
What does this mean for you? For healthcare professionals who took advantage of the extended time to renew, this is a reminder that you must renew your credential on or before September 30 in order for your credential to remain active and avoid late fees.
How do you renew if you need to? If you opted to delay renewal and have passed your normal expiration date, you will need to renew your credential by:
Renewing through the online licensing system (credit card, debit card or e-check accepted), or
- Returning your Department of Health (DOH) renewal notice with payment by mail (check or money order accepted).
No late fees will be due as long as your payment is received online prior to 11:59 PM on September 30; or postmarked no later than September 30. If you have questions, please call DOH at (360) 236-4700.
