$599 for the first license or credential application, which includes a free subscription to Licentiam Vault. Any subsequent new application is only $399 with available renewal management services for $199 per renewal. Fee includes application preparation, submission, & follow-up with licensing or credentialing Board as well as USPS 2nd day shipping to and from Licentiam.  Expedited shipping options are available at additional cost.  Does not cover fees charged by Board or fees for obtaining passport photos, notarizations, malpractice claim reports, background checks, fingerprinting, transcripts, verification of prior or existing licenses, or other documents necessary to complete your application review by the Board.  If more than 5 license verifications are required, an additional processing fee will apply.

Licentiam will pay to ship your documents to you for final signature via USPS 2nd day mail, along with a pre-paid air bill so you can return to us for a final check before submitting them to the licensing board. You also have the option to pay for a different courier and/or expedited service.  You will be responsible for shipping costs involved with obtaining all other supporting documents (i.e. license verifications, medical transcripts, exam scores, etc.)

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 Healthcare License, Credential, & Renewal Management Services 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 is mandatory in other states but does not house all the information needed to get your license. In states where it is mandatory or if you are applying for multiple state licenses, Licentiam can establish your FCVS profile as part of our standard services.
