Change to PA renewal, application fees
NCMB plans to increase physician assistant license application and license renewal fees, pending approval of administrative rule changes.
The annual renewal fee for PAs will increase to $140, from $100. Renewals completed more than 30 days after the renewal date will cost $165. The initial license application fee for PAs will increase to $230, from $200. If approved, the fee increases would take effect April 1, 2019.
PA license application and renewal fees have not increased since 2005. During the 13-year interval, NCMB has twice increased license application and renewal fees for physicians.
NCMB will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, Dec. 11, at 10 a.m. at its offices in Raleigh to gather feedback on the planned fee increases. Or, leave feedback through close of business on Friday, Dec. 14, on the Board’s Policy Discussions page.
