Our data comes from multiple sources, including State Medical Boards, government regulatory entities and international licensing authorities.
Through accreditation with the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), we offer primary source licensure verification and sanction history. Also, we meet primary source equivalent requirements for state board and federal sanctions by the Joint Commission and URAC.
The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) is a membership organization, comprised of all the state medical licensing boards across the United States and its territories. Various State Medical Boards provide the FSMB license data daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly.
Our profiles do not contain malpractice information. We do, however, offer a robust profile that includes the following:
- Revocations and suspensions
- Loss of license
- Probation restrictions of disciplinary and non-disciplinary actions
- Licensure denials
- Consent orders
- Administrative actions (fines, warnings, etc.)
- Medicare/Medicaid exclusions or reinstatements

You can access and pay your invoices thru your PDC account with a credit card or you can pay with a check within 30 days.
