MA License

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I'm incredibly overwhelmed by the requirements that MA has in order to obtain my license. I'm new to MA and a lot of the links that have been provided in the license application are outdated. Here is the list of requirements I need to: 

Mandatory Registration(s):

 I am aware and have submitted a thoroughly completed application to be a fully participating provider or non-billing provider and a signed provider contract to MassHealth on _________, _________ pursuant to M.G.L. c. 112, s. 9(f)

 I consent to the Bureau of Health Professions Licensure and the Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services, and its enrollment vendor, to obtain, read, copy and share with each other information regarding my MassHealth application and enrollment status and professional licensure status. http://www.mass.gov/eohhs/provider/insurance/masshealth/aca/aca-section-6401enrollmentinformation.html

 I am aware that if I am or become a licensed prescriber, pursuant to M.G.L. c. 94C §24(a), I must utilize MassPAT each time I prescribe a Schedule II-III opioid and when prescribing a benzodiazepine or DPH Schedule IV-VI for the first time.

 Once I have obtained my Physician Assistant License and registered for MassPat, I consent to the Bureau of Health Professions Licensure and the Massachusetts Prescription Monitoring Program to obtain, read, copy and share with each other information regarding my MassPAT enrollment status and professional licensure status https://www.mass.gov/service-details/masspat-use-requirements Mandatory Training(s):

I completed the training and received a certificate of completion on: _______, _____.

 I have completed a one-time course of training and education in the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with cognitive impairments, including, but not limited to, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Yes  No  Course Name: ____________________________________________________________________ If you have not completed this one-time course, you must complete the course to satisfy initial licensure/ license renewal requirements.

Hey there, I recently licensed in MA so I have some insight into what things you can do to complete. I do see this is two weeks old though so if you don't need any guidance then no problem! Otherwise if you still need help just let me know.

PM me if you still want some input - I just renewed my license (I let mine lapse accidentally during COVID-driven move to work from home) and had to tack down all of these things. Crazy, huh?
