Effective March 30, 2016, the Maryland Board of Physicians (the Board) will launch a new online license verification system. Licensees can request and pay for a verification of licensure/letter of good standing on the Board’s website at www.mbp.state.md.us/mbp_ah/verification.aspx. Once the online verification request is completed, the license verification will be immediately e-mailed to the state board for which the verification is being requested. Verification fees are payable online by credit card only (Visa, MasterCard or American Express) and fees will remain unchanged ($50 for physician verification and $25 for allied health verifications).
 
The verification letter contains primary source information that is accepted by all other licensing boards.
 
The Board will phase out accepting written requests for license verification and move to 100% online verification system on July 1, 2016. During the transition from paper verifications to electronic verifications, the Board will continue to process written requests for verification until July 1, 2016. After July 1, 2016, all routine verification requests must be done via our website at Online Verification Request.

Any hard copy verification requests received will be discarded without action.

Unlicensed medical practitioners (UMPs) cannot request verifications through the online license verification system. The Board will continue to process written requests for UMPs verifications until July 1, 2016. After July 1, 2016, the Board will no longer provide verification of UMPs registration. Individuals must contact the hospital where the training occurred for primary source verification.
During the transition, you may submit your written request to the address below. If you do not have a verification request form supplied by another state board or agency, click here to print a Verification Request form. Allow 10 business days for receipt, processing and mailing of the verification. The verification letter will be mailed directly to the state board/entity specified in the request. Mail your request form and fee to:

Maryland Board of Physicians
P.O. Box 37217
Baltimore, MD 21297-3217

Do not send FedEx, UPS, or certified mail to this address. Mailing your verification request to our other addresses will only delay processing.
