|CHANGES to OT contact info ?|
|To submit any changes to your name, address, telephone, e-mail address: |
Please get changes to your contact information to us in writing.
It is best to send an e-mail to Felicia.M.Holgate@state.or.us
You can also fax it to 971-673-0226, or mail it to: OT Licensing Board,
800 NE Oregon St. Suite 407, Portland, Oregon 97232.
If it is a name change be sure to include:
The document can be a copy of divorce papers, marriage certificate or name change document.
- A copy of the legal document that changed your name;
Do you want both names, a middle initial ?
- Exactly how you wish the name to appear
- Other changes to address, telephone or e-mail.
Please take care to do this. We sometimes get a name change, then are told the licensee actually wants a former name instead of their middle initial so want a new copy of the license and after it is mailed, it is returned because the address has changed.
This can be very frustrating and take a lot of our time. At this point we do not charge for printing a new license. If it starts taking a lot of time we will need to start charging a fee.
|Do you need an OT license verified? |
There is NO charge in Oregon for license verifications.
To verify a license for an OT or OT Assistant online go back to the home page (click on top line for Occupational Therapy Licensing Board and see in the middle of the page where you can verify a license with a name, license number, or city of practice.
The license verifications does constitute a "primary issuing source" for purposes of license verification. You can click on the Last name, First name, License Number, or City, or scroll down to the second box for specialty areas.
If you need a written verification form sent to another state, it is best to request the verification of licensure by e-mail. Send the verification request to Felicia.M.Holgate@state.or.us giving the full address where the verification needs to to. If you cannot send the request by e-mail then you can call 971-673-0198, or fax 971-673-0226 or by writing to the Board office.
We try to send verifications out within a few days. The Board verifies the license number, whether it is current, the date of initial licensure, and whether the board has disciplined the licensee. We will try to notify you by e-mail when the verification is sent.
Note: Oregon law requires all information obtained during a complaint be kept confidential, including the fact that there is an on-going investigation (except in rare instance where there is a showing by clear and convincing evidence that disclosure is in the public’s interest).
However, once the investigation is complete and the Board, by a majority vote, has taken disciplinary action, a copy of the action is available on request. These requests generally come from other state licensing boards, insurance carriers, and potential employers. See more information on the Complaints/Investigation tab.
