There are several ways to verify the status of an Iowa physician's or acupuncturist's license.
To a State Licensing Board
Verification to a U.S. medical or osteopathic licensing board is processed using VeriDoc. Go to the VeriDoc website to request the verification of your Iowa license to another licensing board. You will pay by credit card and the verification will be sent immediately to the state medical or osteopathic board. Each request will include verification of all licenses a physician has held in Iowa, e.g., resident and permanent licenses.
Please note that ALL states accept VeriDoc verifications. The board will not complete other state medical board license verification forms. The Iowa board's standard verification letter generated through VeriDoc will provide all information required by a state medical board.
To an Agency Outside the U.S.
For requests to agencies outside the U.S. (Canada and overseas), sign in to your Online Services account and select 'Verification of physician license to state agency' MD or DO.
To Another Organization
Verification of a license that does not require a certified statement or letter is $22 (fee and online service charge) per license. Sign in to your Online Services account and go to Purchase Items (blue boxes on left hand side). Select ‘Verification of physician license to non-state agency’ from drop-down box. Provide requested information and submit the fee.
