As of September 2018 Acupuncturist 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 Acupuncturists are being separated out into 2 groups. Licenses ending with an even number will register for 2 years in 2018. Licenses ending with an odd number will register for one year in 2018 and then register for two years in 2019. 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.
At this time, initial Acupuncture registration may not be completed online. Acupuncturists can complete subsequent renewals online 60 days prior to expiration. Registration reminders will be sent out via postal service at least 60 days in advance of the expiration date.
For any questions related to the new Acupuncture biennial renewal, please contact us at Registrations@tmb.state.tx.us using the subject line: “AC renewal”, and please also include your license number. This will help us route your request appropriately for a faster response.
