In 2009, some Indiana physicians learned that one or two inaccurate responses on the license renewal form could end up costing a day of work, attorney fees and fines. The physicians had to appear before the Medical Licensing Board and respond to questions about incorrect answers on their forms.
Because of that experience, the ISMA cautions you to make completion of this year’s renewal form a serious personal responsibility. Don’t delegate this process to staff or, if you do, check the information carefully before adding your signature.
Beginning May 1, the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency (PLA) will start to email notices for you to renew your medical license (or medical residency permit) and Controlled Substance Registration (CSR) online.
If you do not take action, your medical license and CSR will expire at midnight on June 30; renewing after that date will cost you an additional $50 for the license and $50 for each CSR.
Take time now to ensure the PLA has your correct email or mailing address. (Physicians with no email address will receive paper renewal forms.)
Also, plan to complete the online license renewal survey. Results are important in the state’s planning processes for epidemics and disasters, as well as physician workforce projections.
