Board of Medicine Announces One-time 
License Renewal Fee Reduction 

The Wyoming Board of Medicine has instituted a one-time reduction in the fee for physician assistant license renewal.  To renew for the period of January 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017, the fee will be $80 – a reduction of $20 from the regular annual renewal fee of $100.  On-line physician assistant license renewals are open now through January 3rd.

 The Board was able to provide this one-time fee reduction for Wyoming physician assistants due to increased revenue from a larger than budgeted number of new applications for licensure in Wyoming.

 To take advantage of this one-time renewal fee reduction, physician assistants must renew their licenses no later than January 3, 2017.  Renewals received in the Board office after that date will be subject to the regular $100 renewal fee plus the grace period surcharge of $50 and the paper form renewal processing fee of $25.  The grace period ends on March 31, 2017.



BOARD OF MEDICINE URGES USE OF CHRONIC PAIN MANAGEMENT TOOLKIT

The Board urges physicians and physician assistants treating chronic pain in their practices to make active use of the Toolkit.  It contains guidelines, forms, and checklists to assist in effectively treating patients’ chronic pain while ensuring the safe use of opioids and other controlled substances.
