Requests for Verification of State Licensure

License verifications are letters sent to other state agencies to verify the status of a license. These letters may be required to assist the agency in determining if there is any reason to prohibit or delay licensure by alerting state agencies of a disciplinary action(s).

There are two options available to request a license verification:

  1. A license verification may be electronically requested through the licensee’s BreEZe account at From the Quick Start Menu select Verification Letter Request under Manage Your License Information. The fee is $10, and the license verification is mailed to requesting state agency within 10 business days.
  2. A license verification may be obtained by mailing a signed and dated letter to the Physician Assistant Board that includes the following:
    • Contact information (phone number, email address) of the person requesting the license verification.
    • Complete name of the licensee and the license number of each physician assistant for whom a license verification is being requested.
    • Name and address of the state agency where the letter will be sent via U.S. Mail.
    • A check or money order made payable to the Physician Assistant Board for each license verification requested, $10 per license verification. Credit card payments are not accepted.

    The license verification will be mailed to the requesting state agency within 10 business days of receiving the request.

    Mail the license verification request and fee(s) to:
