IDPH Licensure and Renewal Fees and the on-line payment system:
Individuals who apply for initial licensure or for renewal will be charged an EMS licensing fee. IDPH issues renewal notices for applicants and will provide the individual with a PIN number and the address of the EMS website where he/she will find the on-line licensing and renewal link. This link also directs the individual to notify their EMS System Coordinator or Trauma Nurse Coordinator that he/she is applying for renewal. You will be asked to enter your EMS System Number code. Every EMS System in the State has their own 4-digit identifier code with the State of Illinois.
Click here for a list of EVERY SYSTEM NUMBER IN THE STATE so you enter the correct code.
If you do not receive your renewal notice with PIN, email your EMS System so they can print one for you.
On the renewal notice is a felony conviction statement. EMT's who report a felony conviction will not be able to complete their application on-line but will instead need to contact IDPH.
Click here to view the IDPH MEMO and some on-line SCREENSHOTS of the process. This will help the EMS System Coordinators, TNS Coordinators, and EMS providers know what to expect when paying initial license fees, renewal fees, late fees, and/or updating address information.
Individuals who receive either initial notification of having passed a licensure exam or have received a license renewal notice will be able to access their records by using their confirmation number (PIN) or the last four digits of their social security number to verify address, child support status, felony conviction statement and then be directed to an on-line fee payment page for payment via credit card. When the transaction is approved the individual will be provided with a confirmation page, which they may print for their records.
Persons without a debit/credit card or who wish to renew through regular procedures may complete their renewal forms and return them to IDPH, Division of EMS, Attention Licensing via regular mail with the fee enclosed. IDPH will ONLY accept an organization's/institution's check, certified check, cashier's check, bank money order, or postal money order. PERSONAL CHECKS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED and will be returned along with the renewal application.
Duplicate license requests may be requested through the IDPH website link: http://dph.illinois.gov/sites/default/files/forms/ems-duplicate-license-request.pdf
Reciprocity applications may be printed from the IDPH website link: http://dph.illinois.gov/sites/default/files/forms/emsreciprocityapplication.pdf
EMS System Coordinators may request a waiver of the licensing fee for individual EMT's and First Responders who serve exclusively as a volunteer for units of local government or not-for-profit organizations that serve a service area with a population base of less than 5,000 by providing a License Fee Waiver Application form.
The on-line fee payment system allows for vehicle service provider agencies to utilize a credit card to pay for vehicle and ambulance provider license renewal fees. Vehicle service providers will be able to log onto the website http://dph.illinois.gov/topics-services/emergency-preparedness-response/ems/prov-vehLic (click pay vehicle fee in the upper right) and select the vehicle(s) that are due for renewal and pay the fee(s) for the vehicle(s) needing renewal. Vehicle inspections will still have to be completed and entered into the EMS Licensing System for the renewal of the license(s) to be complete and print. NEW or REPLACEMENT vehicles cannot be paid via the on-line system.
The State of Illinois has developed the following to assist EMS Providers (EMT-Basics, Intermediates, Paramedics, and PreHospital RNs) with CE and Relicensure.
IDPH created an EMS License Renewals Brochure to assist EMS providers with renewing their license.
It also includes information about name and address changes as well as placing your license inactive.
IDPH has also revised the Continuing Education Suggestions to give EMS providers acceptable methods of obtaining Continuing Education.
