2017 Illinois Medical License Renewal Now Open! Call ISMS for Easy Renewal
Posted on: 4/13/2017

The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) has opened the 2017 medical license renewal process. The renewal deadline is July 31.

IDFPR has gone paperless this year and will only be sending a single email notification. Emails were reported to have been sent in early April. Physicians will receive no other formal notification if the department doesn’t have a valid email for you – check here.

If you did not receive this electronic notification, you can still renew by providing your medical license number, Social Security Number and date of birth.  

Better yet, give us a call. ISMS will again be offering renewal services. Simply call our hotline at 800-632-7478 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays. In addition to the convenience of renewing over the phone with our friendly staff, you won’t have to pay IDFPR’s service charge for online renewals.

The cost of a three-year medical license renewal is $690. Remember to also renew your controlled substance licenses now – each costs $15.

Save time, money and frustration and call us today!

Questions?  Contact us at 800-632-7478 or send an email.

If you choose to renew online directly with IDFPR, please note that the renewal for any controlled substance license(s) is a separate process. 

Once you've renewed your medical license, you need to return to the "online license renewal" page. Repeat the steps you followed to renew your primary license.  At the "entry page" you’ll be offered an option to renew controlled substance licenses.

If you forgot to renew your controlled substance license or can’t navigate IDFPR's system, call us at 800-632-7478. We can process your controlled substance number over the phone.
