Retirement and Cancellation options

Options for retirement and cancellation are provided in the tabs below.

If you have any questions, please contact the Registration Department at Registrations@tmb.state.tx.us.

    • The voluntary charity care status for retired general or limited medical radiologic technologists (MRT/LMRT), whose only practice is the provision of voluntary charity care, reduces the cost of biennial registration.
    • An MRT on voluntary charity care status must still obtain and report continuing medical education, as indicated in Title 25 Texas Administrative Code §140.511.
    • A "retired medical radiologic technologist" is defined as a person who:
      • is above the age of 55;
      • is not employed for compensation in the practice of medical radiology; and
      • has notified the department in writing of his or her intention to retire and provide only voluntary charity care 
    • To request voluntary charity care status, complete and return the voluntary charity care request form (link below) to Board for approval before the expiration date of the current certificate.  Refunds of registration fees already paid cannot be made.
    • If the MRT or LMRT does not qualify for this status, notification will be sent and the biennial registration fee must be paid to keep the certificate current.
    • The voluntary charity care status is not available for non-certified radiologic technicians (NCT) at this time.
    • Because this form must be received by our office before the expiration date of the current certificate, completed and bearing original signatures, as well as bearing an original seal of notary public, it cannot be faxed back to our office.
