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 late fees were waived during this period.
What does this mean for you? #
For health care professionals who took advantage of the extended time to renew, this is 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 DOH renewal notice with payment by mail (check or money order accepted.)
Some professions are not able to renew late online at this time. You can find a list of professions who are able to renew after their normal expiration date on our License Expiration Extension Frequently Asked Questions page.
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.
