Don’t Let Fall Get Away From You – Renew Your License Now and Save!

August 11, 2020

The deadline to renew your Illinois medical and controlled substance licenses is coming up quickly! September 30 will be here before you know it, and with new CME mandates in place, you’ll want to check this off your to-do list soon.

ISMIE is here to help, with license renewal services and on-demand educational courses to meet all your needs. (Remember, this year physicians are required to take sexual harassment prevention training, and controlled substance license holders need 3 hours of continuing medical education on safe opioid prescribing.)

Our license renewal service, offered in partnership with our friends at the Illinois State Medical Society (ISMS), will allow you to avoid paying IDFPR's processing fees. Due to the public health emergency, renewal for the 2020 cycle will be offered through the ISMS website, but phone assistance will also be available:
  • To get started online, visit ISMS’ License Renewal web page and enter your name and date of birth, then select “Search. From there you will complete the online form.
  • To renew by phone, please call our hotline at 800-632-7478 and leave a message. Our friendly staff will return your phone call during business hours between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on weekdays.
Remember to also renew your controlled substance license(s) – each costs $15.

Unsure if you've already renewed? Check your license status.
Renewal processing can take up to five to 10 business days. If you have questions, please send us an email or call 800-632-7478.
