Important message regarding your 2019 renewal
The Department of Professional Licensing suggests completing your renewal at least two weeks before the expiration date.
Below is useful information regarding your renewal process:
1.) OP ID number: On your email /letter renewal notice, you will find your OP ID number for login. This is a six digit number that identies you in our system.
2.) If you have forgotten your User Name or Password: click the Forgot Password link on the eServices log in screen - you will need your OP ID number that was provided in your email/letter renewal notice - once you enter this six digit number you will be prompted to answer your security question to access your account.
3.) Renewal Date is not your expiration date explained: Your expiration date is the last date you may practice and bill for services and it is shown to the public and employers at online verification. If your employer is telling you that you cannot practice beyond your renewal date, that is an employer and employee issue. Medicaid has agreed and is using the online verification expiration date for their billing. The expiration date represents the end of the grace period found in your Board’s licensure regulations allowing for board imposed late fees or penalties, but you maintain the ability to practice until the shown expiration date.
