License Renewal Deadlines Extended for Illinois Healthcare Professionals
March 24, 2020
In the midst of a pandemic, the last thing on your mind is making sure your continuing education and license renewal paperwork is in order. Fortunately, deadline extensions have been put in place to allow you to focus on providing patient care during this public health emergency.
Last week, partly in response to requests from our partners at the Illinois State Medical Society, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) announced several changes that will impact physicians' licensure process due to the COVID-19 pandemic:
- Any professional license issued by IDFPR that has a renewal date between March 1, 2020, and July 31, 2020, will be granted an automatic extension to renew by Sept. 30, 2020. See the full list of affected professions.
- Current licensees will also have until Sept. 30, 2020, to complete continuing education coursework.
