Q&A: Reporting State Licensure and Certification Actions

  1. A board of medical examiners initiated an investigation related to a physician's professional conduct. Two weeks later, the physician allowed his license to expire. The physician's license lapsed prior to any proposed agreement or board decision, so must the lapse be reported to the NPDB?

    Yes. A nonrenewal of a license while under or to avoid an investigation must be reported to the NPDB.
