RULE §90.15Renewal Procedures and Qualifications

(a) Each license issued under this chapter must be renewed every two years. Each license expires two years from the date issued. A license issued under this chapter is not automatically renewed.

(b) Each license holder must, at least 45 days before the expiration of the current license, submit an application for renewal with DADS. DADS considers that an individual has submitted a timely and sufficient application for the renewal of a license if the license holder:

  (1) submits a complete application to DADS, and DADS receives the complete application at least 45 days before the current license expires;

  (2) submits an incomplete application to DADS with a letter explaining the circumstances which prevented the inclusion of the missing information, and DADS receives the incomplete application and letter at least 45 days before the current license expires; or

  (3) submits a complete application or incomplete application with a letter explaining the circumstances which prevented the inclusion of the missing information to DADS, DADS receives the application during the 45-day period ending on the date the current license expires, and the license holder pays the late renewal fee established in §90.19(a)(4) of this subchapter (relating to License Fees) in addition to the basic renewal fee.

(c) If the application is postmarked by the submission deadline, the application will be considered to be timely if received by DADS' Regulatory Services Licensing and Credentialing Section within 15 days after the postmark. If the application is postmarked by the submission deadline, the application will be considered to be timely if received in DADS' Regulatory Services Licensing and Credentialing Section, within 30 days after the postmark and the license holder proves to the satisfaction of the department that the delay was due to the fault of the United States Postal Service. It is the responsibility of the license holder to ensure that his application is timely received by DADS.

(d) The appropriate license fee must be paid upon submission of the renewal application.

(e) The renewal of a license may be denied for the same reasons an original application for a license may be denied. See §90.17 of this subchapter (relating to Criteria for Denying a License or Renewal of a License).
