Highlights of Recently Enacted Legislation: L.D. 593 (c. 63) Medical License Renewal

All MD physicians should pay attention to this law. It eliminates the mail aspect of the renewal notification requirement for medical licenses, providing instead that the board must "notify" licensees at least 60 days before expiration of the requirement to renew. 

More importantly, the new law eliminates the grace period for renewal after expiration. DO physicians still have a 30 day grace period, but many other professions (nurses, for example) have none. That means one's right to practice is suspended on the expiration date if the license has not been renewed. Reinstatement is allowed within 90 days upon payment of a late fee and submission of "an administratively complete renewal application", but in the meantime the physician may not practice medicine in Maine. Failure to file within the 90-day period means that a lapsed licensee must go through additional administrative steps to be relicensed.
