Yes! Unlike our competitors, Licentiam pays for any document shipping to and from our Licentiam Specialists using commercial courier or USPS via 2nd day air service. You also have the option to pay to expedite via overnight or overnight express.

Board and government fees. Like all other license & credential preparation services, you will be responsible for all Board (government) fees involved with your application. This generally includes State licensing fees, passport photos, notarizations, malpractice claim reports, background checks, fingerprinting, transcripts, verification of prior or existing licenses, and all documents necessary to complete your application review by the Board. Because, these costs vary by state, your Licentiam Specialist will provide you with a cost overview and send you an itemized invoice so all costs are clear and transparent up front. There are no hidden costs or fees with Licentiam!

Licentiam is a turnkey service to help busy professionals get their licenses. First, sign up for Licentiam Concierge Service and login to Licentiam Vault. Next, schedule a time convenient for you to chat with a Licentiam Specialist. Tell us what licenses or credentials you need, and your Licentiam Specialist will do the rest. And, rest easy - we will keep you informed of the application status throughout the process and let you know if any additional information is needed. See How it Works for more information.

A Licentiam Specialist will either contact you within 1 business day of sending us a message, or on the exact date and time of your choosing by using our consultation-scheduling tool. We’ll work with you to get all the necessary information that the Board needs, and you can generally expect to receive the completed application for your signature within 2-3 business days of your consultation. Expedited options are available if needed and can be discussed with your Licentiam Specialist.

Every state Board or licensing agency has their own set of requirements.  Generally speaking, the process can take anywhere from 8 to 12 weeks, but there are many factors involved that influence this timeline including:

  1. What state you are applying to...some states have a much higher volume of applications such as NY, NJ, TX, CA, & FL.
  2. Application review processes at the state Board or licensing agency...each has their own internal timeline for how long it takes once a completed application is received.
  3. Difficulty in verifying your professional credentials and history...providing us with the most accurate, timely, and complete information is the best way to avoid this type of delay.
  4. Time of year...March through September tends to be most busy when new graduates are entering practice for the first time.

***Please note: Licentiam does not guarantee that a license will be issued after we submit your completed application.  Only the state Board or licensing agency can make that determination.

FCVS is a limited service of primary source verified credentials housed by the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB); a trade association. Neither FSMB nor FCVS provide turnkey services to help you obtain a license, never mind helping you keep your license. FCVS is accepted by some states, and mandatory in other states but does not house all the information needed to get your license. In States where it is mandatory, Licentiam can establish your FCVS profile. Otherwise, FCVS is not recommended for most licensees since it unnecessarily adds time to the licensing process
