I am applying for licensure; how do I order a Self-Query?

  1. Select Start a Self-Query Order.
  2. Select Sign In With ID.me.
    • Sign in to your ID.me account if you have one. Otherwise, select "Create an ID.me account."
    • After you sign in to ID.me or create your ID.me account, you will return to the NPDB to start your order.
  3. Complete the online Self-Query order form. Be ready to provide:
    • Identifying information such as name, date of birth, and Social Security number
    • State health care license information (if you are licensed)
    • Credit or debit card information for the $3.00 fee for the digitally certified response, and an additional $3.00 charge for each mailed paper copy.
  4. Verify your identity. This can be done online as part of your order or by completing a paper form and having it notarized. You will receive full instructions as you complete your order.
  5. Wait for your response. Once your identity is verified, the NPDB will process your order. If you verified your identity online, your electronic results are usually available within minutes. You will receive an email when your response is available online. If you order a paper copy of your response, it will be sent by US First Class Mail.
