New biennial renewal process:
As of December 2018 Physician Assistant Registration/Renewal will begin the process of renewing biennially (every 2 years).
To activate your license for the first time, you need to pay your first time registration fee within 90 days of your license issue date. To maintain an active license, you will need to renew your registration biennially.
In order to stagger the roll out of the biennial renewals, all licensed Physician Assistants are being separated out into 2 groups. Licenses ending with an odd number will register for two years in 2019. Licenses ending with an even number will register for one year in 2019 and then register for two years in 2020. Once the roll out is complete, even license numbers will continue to renew in even years, and odd license numbers will renew in odd years.
For any questions related to the new Physician Assistant biennial renewal, please contact us at Registrations@tmb.state.tx.us using the subject line: “PA renewal”, and please also include your license number. This will help us route your request appropriately for a faster response.
New criminal history background check requirement:
COMING SOON - criminal history background checks through the Department of Public Safety and the Federal Bureau of Investigation will bw required prior to registration for current licensees. Detailed information will be provided in the tabs below.
Physician assistants can complete renewals online 60-90 days prior to expiration. Registration reminders will be sent out at least 60 days in advance of the expiration date.
Supervision and Prescriptive delegation:
To register Supervision and/or Delegation, use the online system to file the notice of intent to practice/supervise forms required of PAs and physicians AND to register prescriptive authority, prior to beginning to practice.
