Licensure Renewals

The Florida Board of Medicine and the Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine are responsible for setting the CME required for licensure and relicensure in Florida. Each Board specifies a certain number of hours, including some mandatory topics, that must be completed within each two year licensure term. Half of Florida allopathic licenses expire January 31st of every even numbered year (2014, 2016, etc.) and the other half expire January 31st of every odd numbered year (2013, 2015, etc.). All osteopathic licenses expire March 31st of every even numbered year. To determine the expiration date of your license, look for the date on the physical license sent to you by the Board of Medicine/Osteopathic Medicine or visit the Florida Department of Health online site, www.FLhealthSource.com. Choose Licensee/Provider then License Verification.

Beware of fraudulent requests

The AMA received word about a fraudulent mailing.

Some physician practices in Florida have received a mailing notice from Compliance Services (not to be confused with the Florida corporation, Compliance Services, Inc), which requests that the business send their "annual minutes" and a filing fee of $125.00. BEWARE: This mailing is fraudulent and appears to have been sent to a number of businesses in Florida.

Physician Payment Sunshine Act

Under the new Physicians Payment Sunshine Act, pharmaceutical & medical device companies must begin tracking information on their interactions with physicians and report to the CMS. The Act, created by Congress, was designed to ensure transparency in physicians' interactions with pharmaceutical, biologic & medical device industries as well as GPO's.
