This notice is to advise that, effective March 1, 2021, the Division is suspending new applications for the Temporary Emergency Reciprocity Program for all health care professions regulated by the following boards and committees: 

  

Acupuncture Examining Board 

Athletic Training Advisory Committee 

Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Advisory Committee 

State Board of Dentistry 

Genetic Counseling Advisory Committee 

Hearing Aid Dispensers Examining Committee 

State Board of Examiners of Ophthalmic Dispensers and Ophthalmic Technicians 

State Board of Optometrists 

State Board of Polysomnography 

  

Effective March 1, 2021, no new applications for Temporary Emergency Reciprocity Licenses will be accepted from, and no new temporary reciprocity licenses will be issued to, any out-of-state individuals seeking to practice health care professions regulated by any of the above boards and committees.  All individuals holding previously granted temporary reciprocity licenses for license categories regulated by the above boards and committees (to include any licenses which may be granted before the close of business on February 28, 2021) will remain valid through June 30, 2021, provided the Public Health Emergency remains in place.  

  

This notice does not impact the continuation of the Program for all other previously eligible licensee categories.  New applications will continue to be accepted and processed from eligible categories of health care practitioners; however, regardless of the date of issuance, all emergency reciprocity licenses will expire on June 30, 2021, provided the Public Health Emergency remains in place.   

 

All individuals holding emergency reciprocity licenses that will expire on June 30, 2021 are urged to carefully review the Notice the Division posted on January 26, 2021 addressing the need to apply for a plenary license for any temporary licensee who anticipates any need to provide health care services to New Jersey residents after June 30, 2021.  To apply for a plenary New Jersey license, visit https://www.njconsumeraffairs.gov/Pages/onlinelicenses.aspx

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

January 26 2021 ALERT; Please be advised that any approved temporary emergency reciprocity license will be valid through June 30, 2021, provided that the Public Health Emergency remains in place. Any new licenses that may hereafter be issued will similarly be valid only through June 30, 2021, provided that the Public Health Emergency remains in place.

The Division urges all health care providers presently holding temporary emergency reciprocity licenses, who anticipate any need to continue to provide health care services to New Jersey patients after June 30, 2021 (i.e., any services for which a New Jersey issued license would ordinarily be required), to immediately apply for a plenary New Jersey license. License applications can take significant time to process. Emergency reciprocity licenses will not become plenary licenses, or result in any modified application process for receiving a plenary license; you must apply for a plenary New Jersey License through the regular process to continue practicing in New Jersey after June 30.
