The Arizona Medical Board (AMB) is urging physicians to keep their contact information current. In an email, physicians were reminded of their statutory obligation to maintain their contact information with the Arizona Medical Board.
In part the email read: As your licensing agency, there are times when we need to contact you and/or send you reminders regarding the status of your license. For example, the Board does send an email reminder regarding your renewal deadline. It is imperative we have up-to-date information which will allow us to communicate directly with you. In order to facilitate communication between you and the Board, please take a moment to click on this link Online Change of Address (https://azdo.glsuite.us/glsuiteweb/clients/azbom/Private/changeaddress/login.aspx) to access your profile and update your contact information. Please see the statute below that requires you to report a change of address and allows for a penalty if this information is not maintained with the Board.
A. Each active licensee shall promptly and in writing inform the board of the licensee’s current residence address, office address and telephone number and of each change in residence address, office address or telephone number that may later occur.
B. The board may assess the costs incurred by the board in locating a licensee and in addition a penalty of not to exceed one hundred dollars against a licensee who fails to comply with subsection a within thirty days from the date of change. Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, monies collected pursuant to this subsection shall be deposited in the Arizona medical board fund.”
