Extension of Temporary Health Care Licenses

On December 23, 2020, Governor Holcomb issued Executive Order 20-51, allowing those temporary health care licenses issued to date under the public health emergency to be extended for an additional 90-day period.  This is the third extension since the initial approval. This third 90-day extension applies to the following health care professionals who were granted a temporary license:

  • Health care professionals with an active out-of-state license;
  • Retired health care professionals whose licenses were rendered inactive within the past five years but were not revoked, suspended, or relinquished;
  • Physician assistant students who successfully completed all required course work and applied for a license with the Professional Licensing Agency (PLA);
  • Nursing students who successfully completed all required course work and applied for a license with the PLA;
  • Respiratory care practitioner students who successfully completed all required course work and applied for a license with the PLA; and
  • Graduate pharmacists who successfully completed all required course work and applied for a license with the PLA.

As a reminder, all health care professionals who do not hold an active Indiana license who are practicing during the public health emergency must register with the PLA, unless a professional compact otherwise applies.  The PLA’s COVID-19 Temporary Health Care Provider Registry can be found here.
