Compact IMLC Medical Licensing Services

MedLicense.com's IMLC Reciprocity Licensing Services:

The Interstate Medical Licensure Compact Commission, or IMLCC, provides a more expedited route to licensure through the reciprocity agreement between the 35 States participating in the IMLC. In this system, the IMLCC acts as the hub between the Medical Boards to exchange information on physicians who are qualified to be a part of the IMLC Compact. It is truly a better way to license than the old system of complete re-verification of a Doctor's Credentials each time they wish to apply for a new State Medical License. MedLicense.com's Reciprocal Physician ILMC Compact Licensing Services. Founded in 2001, MedLicense.com can navigate the multi-State Process for you.

 

MedLicense.com provides IMLC Licensure services via the Reciprocial Compact. Once you submit your order for ILMC Services, MedLicense.com will:

  • Email the required forms to you to proof, sign, and date
  • Fedex the required fingerprint packet to you
  • Submit the IMLC Compact Conversion Application to the IMLC
  • Request the Employment Verifications for the IMLC Sponsoring State
  • Request the the Criminal Background Check for the IMLC Sponsoring State

Things you should know about the Compact IMLC process before proceeding:

The process is time limited. You are only given 30 days to complete each application. In the event that you do not comply or are unable to comply with the IMLCC / Sponsoring State / Additional State's requests within the 30 day time period the following will occur:

  • Your application will expire and you will lose the funds you provided to the IMLC / Sponsoring State / Additional State
  • A Few of the States will actually consider this to be a denial of licensure and report you to the NPDB-HIPDB and FSMB as a "Board Action"
  • The individual Medical Boards can refuse to issue a license through the IMLC even if you meet the requirements which the IMLC has provided on their website. The Individual Medical Boards can review you Exam Score History, Type of Board Certification, Malpractice History, along with other potential issues to determine eligibility. The IMLC does not approve or disapprove the applications. This is left up to the Individual State Medical Boards. 
  • Physician's who previously held a license in an "Add On" IMLC State will not be allowed to apply through the IMLC to reinstate those Medical Licenses. The Physician will be forced to apply through the Board's normal reinstatement, reactivation, or restoration process
  • If a physician is going to license in all 50 States and will be using the IMLC to add the 31 States to their license list, adding the 31 States at the same time as the 29 Full States or before will increase their licensure cost by up to $22,475. Why? Because it is very likely that the 29 slower medical boards will see the 31 new licenses and as such require that each be verified to the 29 slower boards. The average cost of a license verification is $25.  $25 x 31 new licenses = $775.  $775 x 29 slower Boards = $22,475. Proper planning in advance can reduce your out of pocket expense while achieving licensure in the majority of the States within a 2 1/2 - 4 1/2 month window. 

So it is extremely important that all communications from the IMLC and Board's are received, complied with, and responded to immediately during the process. With the IMLC Compact Licensing System, you are trading time for stress.
