PA Registration/Renewal

 

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 annually.

 

Physician assistants can complete 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.

 

To register Supvision 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.

 

Supervision & Prescriptive Delegation

 

  • Once the Board has issued you an official license number, you will have 90 days to register and activate your license.

    Under Senate Bill 195 (84th Legislative Session) effective 9/1/2016, the TMB will remit funds to the Texas State Board of Pharmacy for the purposes of the operation and maintenance of the Texas Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP).

Once the expiration date has occurred, penalty fee equal to one half of the registration fee will be added.  After 90 days, the penalty fee will increase to equal a full registration fee. If a license has been expired for one year or longer it is automatically cancelled.
