Medical License Puerto Rico Reciprocity BETTER

Many state boards are denying reciprocity with the Puerto Rico State Board Exam due to the fraudulent acts of several unethical and unqualified physicians and multiple corrupt medical board members. Even though Puerto Rico is a US territory, the validity of their state medical examination is under consideration.

Medical License Puerto Rico Reciprocity

I am licensed in 19 states and have adjusted claims from Washington to Florida, and everywhere in between. Licensing has been critical to my long-term success as an independent adjuster and reciprocity makes it easy to get and maintain multiple licenses.

The State of Florida does not offer reciprocity as an avenue for licensure. If you hold a medical license in another state and have practiced medicine in at least two of the last four years, we can offer licensure by endorsement.

Physicians are expected to be more mobile now than ever before. With the physician shortage growing in the United States, many physicians are working in several states or providing telehealth services in order to help more patients. Managing multiple state medical licenses and finding out which states have medical license reciprocity leads to frustration and wasted time for physicians who are already short on spare time. Busy physicians depend on MLG for management and maintenance of multiple state licenses and ensuring medical license reciprocity among states in which they practice.

Your IMLC medical license will undoubtedly allow you to pursue new opportunities to expand your practice. For many physicians, the IMLC eliminates the need to manage multiple license applications. We can help you determine how it would benefit your practice based on your unique situation.

Having a medical license through the IMLC makes life tremendously easier for many physicians, however, the process of obtaining this type of license is not so simple. Before applying for a compact license, you should first determine if you are qualified. The easiest way to do this is to complete our simple intake form which will allow your dedicated licensing specialist at MLG to determine your eligibility.

If you are eligible for a compact medical license, you will need a Letter of Qualification from your SPL proving you hold a full, unrestricted medical license in a state that is a member of the IMLC. Also, you must be able to prove that either your primary residence is in the SPL, at least 25% of your practice of medicine occurs in the SPL, your employer is located in the SPL or you use the SPL as your state of residence for U.S. federal income tax purposes. As a client of MLG, your dedicated licensing specialist will field any requests from the IMLC for more information and ensure your application progresses as smoothly as possible.

Administrative license: An administrative license is for a physician whose primary responsibilities are administrative or academic. It does not include authority to diagnose or treat patients, issue prescriptions for controlled substances, delegate medical acts or prescriptions authority, or issue opinions regarding medical necessity. The administrative license fee is $600.00.

Initial licensure for graduates of medical schools in the United States, Canada or Puerto Rico: An applicant is required to have completed two (2) years of postgraduate training medical training in an ACGME or AOA approved or accredited Canadian program to be eligible for a full license. This applies to applications received by the Board on or after February 1, 2012. Please see 243 CMR 2.02(2)(c) for additional information.[2]

Limited license: Limited licenses are issued to physicians enrolled in post-graduate medical education programs in teaching hospitals in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. All such training must be done in ACGME or AOA accredited programs, or in a sub-specialty clinical training or fellowship program in a training facility, which has an approved program in the parent specialty. A physician who holds or who has ever held a full Massachusetts license is not eligible for a limited license. The limited license fee is $100.00.

Renewal of your full medical license will occur on your first birth date after the license issuance date, unless your birthday falls within ninety (90) days of obtaining initial license. If your first birth date after the issuance date falls within this time frame, you will not be required to renew your license until the following birth date. Renewals thereafter will be on a two-year birth date cycle.

Physicians who prescribe controlled substances, as defined by MGL. c. 94C s. 18, must have completed at least three (3) hours in opioid education and pain management as a prerequisite to obtaining or renewing a medical license. The training shall include how to identify patients at high risk for substance abuse, as well as how to counsel patients about the side effects, the addictive nature, and proper storage and disposal of prescription medicines. These credits may be used toward the required risk management credits of CPD. A free on-line resource to obtain the necessary credits can be found at

[1] Pursuant 243 CMR 2.02 (2) (i) licensees that engage in direct or indirect patient care must maintain medical malpractice insurance. Licensees that do not engage in direct or indirect patient care or whose patient care in the Commonwealth is limited to professional service rendered at or on behalf of federal, state, county or municipal health care facilities are not subject to medical malpractice insurance requirements.

The next step is meeting with a licensed cannabis doctor. Providing your medical records can give them an even better understanding of your overall health. Once they examine your records and determine you qualify for a card, your physician will fill out a medical marijuana certification form.

Due to medical cannabis reciprocity laws, cardholders from the U.S. may be able to purchase cannabis from Puerto Rican dispensaries. Furthermore, Puerto Ricans may be able to purchase cannabis from U.S. states.

Educators from other states seeking New Jersey certification via reciprocity must hold the equivalent type and subject area/grade level out-of-state license. Assuming such equivalency, the following applies:

Dr. Amieiro noted that some states have already been addressing concerns about temporary licenses for disaster response and easing licensing connected with military deployments. Others in the committee noted that reciprocity agreements between some states also simplify and hasten the licensing process.

In general, the slow and burdensome process for cross-state practice may foreclose opportunities for qualified workers, the report says, and states have many options to make licenses more portable. Those options include interstate compacts in which states agree to identical rules governing certain professions, licensing reciprocity agreements, model laws that assure state boards professionals licensed in another state are qualified, and expedited licensing that relies on professional information stored through third-party repositories.

The IMLCC charges $700 plus the cost of a license in each state along with a $100 handling fee if more than one state is selected. Plus, physicians practicing in multiple states must still adhere to each of the state-specific medical practice regulations.

The State of Florida does not have reciprocity with any state and does not issue licenses by endorsement or credentials. The requirements for licensure by examination are as follows and can be found in Section 466.006, F.S.:

While Illinois does not allow medical marijuana reciprocity, it has legalized recreational cannabis. Unlike many other states, there are some limitations on what out-of-state residents can purchase. Non-residents ages 21 and older can have 15 grams of cannabis, 250 milligrams of infusions, and 2.5 grams of concentrate.

Montana is considered to have reciprocity with other states, allowing medical cardholders from out-of-state to possess and consume marijuana while visiting. However, until 2021, no states bordering Montana had legalized medical marijuana, making it illegal to bring your own cannabis into the state. South Dakota recently legalized cannabis, so this may change in the future.

Recreational marijuana became legal in Nevada in 2017, allowing adults 21 and older to purchase and consume cannabis for personal use. Previously, Nevada had legalized medical marijuana in 2000, and Nevada had reciprocity with all states.

Yes! Oklahoma recognizes out-of-state cannabis cards. In the Sooner State, out-of-state medical marijuana patients are able to purchase from dispensaries after applying for a temporary license. The temporary license costs $100, takes about 2 weeks to process, and is valid for 30 days with the ability to be renewed. If approved, patients can possess:

Make this priority!The results take 6-8 weeks for the Board to receive, often making this the last thing the Board needs to issue your license. California will not issue your medical license before they receive the results of your criminal background check
