Fee Discounts Offered for Direct Entry Midwives

Tuesday, September 29, 2020

​The Health Licensing Office has filed a permanent administrative rule with the Oregon Secretary of State on behalf of the Board of Direct Entry Midwifery. The permanent rule continues the discount of the license and renewal fees until July 1, 2024. The rule is needed for midwifery licensing to continue at a lower cost to allow for the increased demand of families seeking birth at home or in birthing centers.

This permanent rule language is effective September 15, 2020, and replaces a temporary rule in effect since April 1, 2020.
