Doctor License Number Verification Websites for all 50 States

You only need to use this state license lookup if you can't find the physician hasn't updated their License Numbers in the NPPES Registry NPI Search Tool. Try that first. If the license number isn't there, it'll include a link to this page with the state links below for the phyisician's registered state of practice.

It can be difficult to find physician license verification websites, because each state uses their own database and all the websites are different. We've made it easier for you by compiling a comprehensive list of medical board websites with links directly to the page where you can search for a physician license number. If you need to look up a license number for CMS Open Payments compliance but that license number is not listed in the NPPES Physician Registry you can use this list to find the most current license number registered with the state.

Sometimes the license number in the NPPES is incorrectly formatted or it's just wrong. Remember, the NPPES is updated by a human and sometimes they make mistakes. It could be that the doctor didn't have a license number when they filled out the NPPES form or it was a temporary number and the record was never updated after the doctor received the permanent license number. The license number at the state website below will be correct and up to date. When you search the website for the doctor, there may be multiple numbers listed. Make sure to pick the ACTIVE license number with the most recent date.

If you upload your transactions to the CMS Open Payments portal and they report an error on the License number for any reason, we suggest you use the physician license verification search form below to double check the number. If your doctor record has multiple license numbers, you will need to verify each one. Finally, the NPPES may not have been updated recently and the doctor may have moved to another state. If you can't find the doctor in the state you expect, run a web search with Google, Bing, or your favorite search engine and see if they may have relocated since they filled out the NPPES.
