Do your credentialing now - before the system goes down|
The Medical Board of California will be transitioning to the new BreEZe online licensing and enforcement system in early October 2013. During this transition, there will be temporary disruptions in cashiering and other services. The License Verification System (LVS) will be revamped and unavailable for at least 30 days, or longer.
To avoid any possible lapse in licensure verification or processing delays, users are strongly encouraged to do any credentialing searches now. This must be done prior to October 3, 2013 because the LVS system will be accessible, but the data will not be updated/refreshed for at least 2 months.
In the interim, please do the following:
* Use the "Check Your Doctor" link on the Board's homepage to verify the current status of the physician's license.
* Check LVS system for record of any 805 reports on file prior to October 3rd. Use the standard protocol to request a copy of the report(s) by completing the "Request For Copy of 805 Report"
* To check for 805 reports received after October 3rd, submit an email request with the full name and California license number of the physician(s) you need researched to Complaint@mbc.ca.gov
If you have any additional questions, please contact Keith DeGeorge at (916) 263-2449, or by Fax at (916) 263-2435.
* Licensing Verification System (LVS) Subscription Information
Please note: The License Description table and License Status Codes and Descriptions table have been updated.
If authorized, the LVS system provides information on the number of Business and Professions Code section 805 reports filed on the licensee. For information on how to request a copy of an 805 report, see Important Phone and Fax Numbers. This database differs from the Medical Board's Web site physician profile in that it does not provide public disclosure descriptions. For this information please check the physician's profile by clicking here.
PLEASE NOTE: California Business & Professions Code Section 805.5(b) prohibits the Medical Board from disseminating a copy of an 805 report "(1) if the denial, removal, or restriction was imposed solely because of the failure to complete medical records, (2) if the board has found the information reported is without merit, or (3) if a period of three years has elapsed since the report was submitted."
