Oregon Licensing Fee Increases Effective July 1

The Oregon Medical Board will increase most license registration and renewal fees beginning July 1, 2024. Licensees will see this change at their next license renewal.

Oregon’s current licensing fees have been in place since 2013. In that time, the cost of doing business has risen significantly. The OMB does not receive tax funding and relies on licensing and service fees to fund the important services we provide. The fees we receive provide the resources necessary to ensure that only qualified and competent individuals are licensed to practice medicine in Oregon, remediate licensees who pose a threat to patient safety, and inform members of the public about their medical providers. 

In addition to these services, registration and renewal fees provide agency licensees access to the benefits of the Health Professionals’ Services Program (HPSP) and Oregon Wellness Program (OWP). 

The Board undertakes its responsibilities consistent with our values of integrity, accountability, excellence, customer service, and equity. We continuously work to be good stewards of licensee dollars and we understand that increasing costs are an obstacle for our licensees, too. The Board has worked hard to keep from increasing fees as long as possible by streamlining processes to find efficiencies, automating where we can, and simply eliminating activities that don’t bring value. This has not been enough to meet rising expenses; the agency cannot continue to fulfill its mission of public protection without increasing revenue.
