Health care licensing ensures your medical provider has a minimum standard of training and education. Unlicensed doctors are ineligible to carry malpractice insurance, and pose a huge liability to any patients under their care.
However, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to medical licensing because requirements and enforcement vary significantly from state to state.
Don't assume your doctor is licensed. Instead use this tool to take you to your state licensing board, where you can verify if your provider has a medical license whether he or she has faced disciplinary actions.
