The Illinois Academy of Physician Assistants wants to thank the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation for listening to the concerns of PAs across Illinois and implementing electronic renewals for all PA licenses.
IDFPR government relations director Robert E. Dixon announced earlier this week (12/20/19) that despite earlier concerns about not being ready on time, the Department is now accepting online license renewals. The deadline for license renewals is March 1, 2020 but the Illinois Academy of PAs urges all PAs to apply as soon as possible.
