Reasons Your Medical License May Get Revoked

While your medical license could be under threat of revocation for a number of reasons, there must be evidence of some sort of wrongdoing before the revocation can take effect. If you receive notification that your license may be revoked or suspended by the state medical board, you need to speak with an attorney immediately to determine the best course of legal action.

Common reasons medical licenses are revoked include:

  • Substance abuse
  • Medical malpractice
  • Sexual assault or misconduct
  • Medical insurance fraud such as billing fraud or receiving kickbacks
  • Criminal convictions
  • Violations of prescription drug laws (overprescribing, stealing, or aiding and abetting)
  • Abuse of a patient

Before your license is revoked, the state medical board will usually conduct an investigation into any claim of fraud, abuse, or misconduct. Claims can come from patients, co-workers, or other agencies that suspect wrongdoing. 

You have a right to defend against these claims. Depending on the circumstances, you may have the opportunity for a formal hearing. It is important to consult with an attorney as early in the process as possible to ensure you receive the best possible outcome in your case. 

What to Do If You Receive Notice of an Investigation

If you are being investigated for possible misconduct you should speak with an attorney immediately about your rights. You will want to prepare a comprehensive defense against the allegations of abuse, fraud or other wrongdoing. It is important to collect any evidence that may prove your innocence and help protect your license. 

The loss of your medical license could be damaging to your reputation, your career, and your practice. Even a suspension can be extremely detrimental to your livelihood. Exercising your rights can prove critical to a successful outcome in your case.
