Expand allClose all

Where should I send payment for my fees [application fee, license fee, and Neurological Injury Compensation Association (NICA) fee]?

If you apply online, you will be prompted to enter a valid credit card number to submit your payment for all fees.  If you are mailing a paper application, please send one cashier’€™s check or money order for your total payment made payable to:

Department of Health
P.O. Box 6330
Tallahassee, Florida 32314-6330.

If I reapply for licensure after my application expires, will all of the fees apply to my new application?

Only the initial license fee and the NICA fee will be applied to the new application. The application fee will not be applied to the new application.  However, the application fee is only valid for one year and is non-refundable.

Will I get a refund if I am not approved for licensure?

The Board of Medicine will refund your initial license fee and NICA fee.  However, you will not receive a refund for your application fee.

I overpaid on my fees. Can I receive a refund?

There is a three year statute of limitation for refunds so if the overpayment was made less than three years ago you are eligible for a refund.

Board of Medicine
