How to return to active status following a mandated suspension.

(1) The department of health places the credential in mandatedsuspension status when a law requires suspension of a credential under certain circumstances. This suspension is not discretionary for the department of health. Examples of mandated suspension are default on a student loan and failure to pay child support. The practitioner may not practice while on mandated suspension. The credential must be returned to active status before the practitioner may practice.
(2) A credential is returned to active status by complying with the following:
(a) Meet all the requirements outlined in the order mandating the suspension;
(b) Pay the current renewal fee, if due;
(c) Pay the substance abuse monitoring surcharge if required by the profession;
(d) Pay a "return from mandated suspension fee" of two hundred forty-five dollars. Standard renewal fees are not required during the period of the suspension;
(e) Provide written declaration that all continuing education and competency requirements for the entire suspension period have been met, if required by the profession;
(f) Provide other written declarations or documentation, if required for the profession; and
(g) If the mandated suspension was for more than three years the practitioner must also comply with any specific requirements identified in rule by that profession's regulatory entity.
