The Illinois Medical Board recently resolved
its' budget crisis. They are back in business. However,
because of the budget issue, the mail is approximately 4-6 weeks
in arrears. This will translate into delays in processing the
application and the verifications which will arrive after the
application. Licensure time frames can be expected to take 90 to
120 days for most Illinois Medical License applications.

Additional Illinois Medical Board
The biggest issue with the Illinois Medical Board
is its' Mail System. Once a mail is received by the Board, it
takes the Illinois Medical Board 2 to 8 weeks to log it into a
physician's file. This creates large delays in the receipt of
verifications and the Boards acknowledgement of their receipt.
Hurry up and wait. Therefore we recommend the use of Fedex for
all Applications to insure accountability by the Illinois Medical
Board. Any mail loss by the Board will cause significant delays.
The CDS (Controlled Dangerous Substance) Application can be
submitted at the same time as the Full Medical License
Application. This is highly recommended to insure there is no
delay in your ability to practice and prescribe once the Medical
License is issued.
