Extended Health Profession License Expiration Date


The Secretary of Health has extended health profession license expiration dates for licenses up for renewal between April 1 and September 30, 2020.

This extension will allow health professionals to focus on patient care and promote continued patient safety during the COVID-19 outbreak. Because renewal payment won’t be required until September 30, 2020, it will also reduce the economic burden on those providers not able to work during this emergency.

Washington law allows the Secretary of Health to grant an administrative modification for the duration of any license, certification, or registration period to address unusual circumstances. Governor’s Proclamation 20-32 provides authority for the action without agency rulemaking. More information is available HERE
