On March 30, 2016, the Maryland Board of Physicians (the Board) launched a new online license verification system. Effective July 1, 2016, the Board discontinued accepting written requests for license verification. All routine verification requests must be completed online via the Boardís website.
All written verification requests and payments received after July 1, 2016 will be returned unprocessed. Written requests without payment will be discarded.
Licensees* must request and pay for a verification of their license on the Boardís website. 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. The verification letter contains primary source information that is accepted by all other licensing boards. Click to start the online verification request www.mbp.state.md.us/mbp_ah/verification.aspx.
Verification fees are payable online by credit card only (Visa, MasterCard or American Express) and fees will remain unchanged ($50 for physician and $25 for allied health practitioner verifications).
Entities or third parties requiring primary source verification can verify a license status on the Boardís website by selecting the Look Up A Licensee or Practitioner Profile links.
The Board can only provide electronic verification of licensure to other state boards in the U.S. If your verification needs to go out of the country or you are applying for licensure in another jurisdiction requiring the verification be mailed directly to you, mail your written request along with payment to P.O Box 2571, Baltimore, MD 21215, Attention Customer Service. Fees are payable by check or money order. Allow 10 business days for processing.
