Get Help Applying for Medical Licensure or Transferring a Professional License
Call us now at 1-855-664-5154 to get started
You’re a busy healthcare professional.
Perhaps you’re looking to relocate to another state, or you’ve already made the move and you’re working in your field in a limited, unlicensed capacity.
You know it’s in your best interest to pursue your license, but the application process is long, tedious, complicated…and completing the paperwork always seems to get pushed to the bottom of your “to do list.”
We don’t blame you! Even when one state has reciprocity with another, the process of actually taking advantage of that reciprocity and filing for a license transfer can get overwhelming.
Since 2008, the professionals at Credentialing.com have helped healthcare professionals transfer or acquire their professional licenses.
How does it work?
Completing an application for professional licensure is just the beginning. After that, there are a plethora of other activities that might need to be completed, including:
- Contacting supervisors to confirm supervision hours
- Contacting colleges/universities to get certified official transcripts
- Contacting professional education providers to confirm certifications or continuing education credits.
- Contacting testing organizations to get certified official test scores
- Contacting schools to get course syllabi to confirm that courses on an applicant’s transcript meet the requirements of the state’s licensure qualifications
- Contacting department heads to request a letter explaining why a course on a transcript (perhaps one where no syllabi is available) meets the requirements of the state’s licensure qualifications
- Getting study materials for a jurisprudence exam; and access to the exam itself
- Speak with the licensure board to determine options if an applicant’s application is deficient in some way (ex: a required course was not part of professional’s schooling)
- Obtaining accurate records of any lapses in licensure
- Obtaining accurate documentation of any formal complaints, or other issues
- Making sure license process is not getting unnecessarily held up in review
- And many others…
Q: After I hire you, will I need to be actively involved in the process?
A: We’ll need access to your information to complete your license application. If you’re demographic information is recorded in a database like CAQH, we’ll have a good starting point. If you’re missing some necessary information we can help you to track it down. Throughout the process, we’re going to do the heavy lifting, but we will likely need your involvement or insights from time to time.
Q: What does this service cost?
A: $495 for the first 5 hours. Often we can complete the project in this time. If there is more to be done, our price drops to $75 an hour (purchasable in 2 hour blocks of $150). Throughout the entire process, you’ll have access to all our work, including a digital record of emails, calls, documents, etc.
Q: How do I know you’re getting the work done?
A: You’ll have access to an online dashboard of your account, and you’ll be able to see every phone call, email, document, note, etc. It’s 100% transparency.
Q: Can I reach you if I have questions?
A: Yes! You’ll be appointed a senior licensing professional, who you can call directly (M-F 8a-5p EST), or email anytime. You can also message us though your project’s dashboard. In summary, we’re accessible to you basically anytime.
Q: Do I need to use your service? Can’t I just do this myself?
A: You can indeed! We’re here to help those who are busy, or would otherwise not spend their time on the technical and administrative task of transferring a license / applying for licensure.
Q: Am I allowed to use a service like this? Will the licensure board view this poorly?
A: Yes, and then no. You are 100% allowed to use our services, and using our service should not look bad in the eyes of a board. In fact, if you were working in a large hospital system such help might customarily be provided to you. It’s 100% above board.
Q: What type of licenses can you help with?
A: We’re most experienced with a healthcare and medical licenses. If you have a non-medical license situation you’d like help with, call us!
Q: Can you help me transfer a counseling license?
A: Yes! We are very familiar with the licensure process of behavioral health providers, including Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC), Licensed Mental Health Counselors (LMHC), Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCC), Licensed Clinical Professional Counselors (LCPC), Licensed Independent Clinical Social Workers (LICSW), Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW), Licensed Psychologists, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFT), and many others. We understand that a designation in one state (such as LPC, LCSW) might not be interpreted as the same level of certification on another state and we can help you navigate the challenges these nomenclature variants can cause.
Q: Is this service guaranteed?
A: Whether your license is approved is 100% in the hands of your professional licensure board. Because of that, we can’t guarantee success. Think of us as skilled assistants who are going to help you get organized and put your licensure application together in a professional package and then monitor the process for you.
Q: Can you help with international healthcare / medical professionals?
A: Yes! And we’d love to help. Please note that such licensure application processes often take more time than normal domestic license transfers.
