Through our continued communication with IDFPR leadership the IAPA has learned that the state will be issuing an extension for licenses.  All renewals that accurately completed and postmarked on or before March 1st, 2018 will be considered timely AND WILL NOT BE MARKED AS LATE OR LAPSED.  Due to unique circumstances IDFPR has EXTENDED THE TIME FOR LAWFUL PRACTICE FOR PHYSICIAN ASSISTANTS WITH CURRENTLY ACTIVE LICENSES UNTIL MARCH 16TH, 2018. 

Any renewal applications that have deficiencies (i.e. missing or incomplete forms/fees) may be returned or may require additional time for review.  All currently active Physician Assistant licenses WILL REMAIN ACTIVE while IDFPR staff review pending renewal applications.

Licensees may contact the Department at 1-800-560-6420 to verify that the Department has received the renewal application and determine if any deficiencies have been logged into the system.


Thank You!
