Medical Doctor Applications

In order to comply with federal law, the West Virginia Board of Medicine is obligated to inform each applicant or licensee from whom it requests a Social Security Number that disclosing such number is MANDATORY in order for this Board to comply with the requirements of the federal National Practitioner Data Bank and the Healthcare Integrity and Protection Data Bank. If this Board should be required to make a report about one of its applicants or licensees to either of these data banks, it must report that individual’s Social Security Number.
