Due to the COVID-19 State of Emergency, the Board of Medicine has extended all current PLLC certificates of authorization scheduled to expire on June 30, 2020 until September 30, 2020. Effective at 11:59 pm Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on Wednesday, September 30, 2020, all current certificates of authorization will expire unless successfully renewed prior to 4:30 pm EDT on Wednesday, September 30, 2020. The Board strongly encourages early renewal to avoid unexpected problems or delays in renewal completion.
On May 1, 2020, the Board mailed a PLLC renewal application to each PLLC. Along with the completed application, the PLLC must submit:
- A copy of the most recent Annual Report that the PLLC filed with the West Virginia Secretary of State;
- A copy of the PLLC’s certificate of professional liability insurance, identifying the PLLC as the insured entity, which demonstrates continuous insurance coverage for the PLLC in the amount of $1,000,000.00;
- If applicable, a written statement which identifies any former member who left the PLLC after July 1, 2019 by full name and the specific date (month, day and year) of departure from the PLLC; and
- The PLLC renewal fee of $100.00 payable to the West Virginia Board of Medicine.
Accuracy and completeness are important to ensure the efficient processing of the renewal application. Missing contact information, signatures, etc. will cause the renewal application to be returned to the PLLC unprocessed.
To avoid expiration, the Board must receive the completed PLLC renewal application, with all associated documents and the renewal fee, prior to 4:30 pm on Wednesday, September 30, 2020. If the Certificate of Authorization expires, the PLLC must cease rendering professional services through the company in the State of West Virginia.
