    1 – How early can one start CE requirements for renewal? For example, if your license expires 4/30/2016, can you start as soon as your prior renewal is complete?
    2 – Once CE requirements are complete, how early can one renew? Do you have to be within a certain time-frame before expiration to renew?

      Hey Carol,

      Thanks for reaching out to us with your questions. We are happy to answer those for you.

      1. If your License expires on 4/30/16- that means your Cycle started on 5/1/14- therefore you want to take course for that cycle within those dates(5/1/14 to 4/30/16), not before or after because those courses would fall under other cycles at that point.

      2. Once complete and all the proof is within your CE Broker account, you would go to http://www.flhealthsource.com click on Renew My License. The State will open Renewal for your Profession 120 days before.

      Please let us know if we can help further by answering any other questions you may have.

        Thank you for your response! I called the Florida Dept of Health this morning and they gave me the same answers except they said that the window to renew (after CE credits are complete) starts *90* days before the date of expiration. That would make the renewal window for 4/30/2016 expiration to begin on Jan 31/Feb 1, 2016. Do you have a resource for the 120 days? Thanks again, Carol

        Carol,

        Sorry for the confusion. I’ll clarify for you!

        The 120 days is in reference to when the Florida Department of Health will open the ability to renew before the expiration date of your license. The State will begin looking into each Licensees’ account for a more in-depth look at the courses 90 days AFTER the expiration date.

        I hope that clarifies the confusion for you.

        Thank you for your reply. They told me today when I called that you can renew and time starting 90 days prior to expiration of your license. Do you think that the Customer Service rep at 850-488-0595 (FL Dept of Health Cust Svc) had it wrong?

    Renewal actually opens up at least 120 days prior to the expiration date. The FL Deptartment of Health is required to mail out your renewal notice 90 days prior to your expiration date, however, it is their practice to mail out the notices 120 prior to expiration when possible. So to ensure there is no confusion, they tell you you can renew 90 days prior (even though the online renewal may have opened up 120 days prior). Just know when you get your renewal postcard you can go online and renew! If you have any other questions, you can always call the DOH again at 850-488-0595 or call our Support Team at 877-434-6323.

      Madge–

      I’m sorry to hear that you missed your renewal date. You can renew at any time post expiration date. 120 days prior to expiration is the time when online renewal is turned on, and you can renew anytime after that. I hope this helps!
