For government agency privilege information, PAs are required to enter their name as shown on the privilege, the name of the government agency, and the privilege expiration date. This information is entered through the Licenses/Privileges link on the CAQ section of their personal certification record.
PAs must also attest to the statement, “I agree to provide NCCPA with the required information for any and all state licenses and government privileges that I have held in the past or currently hold. Furthermore, I understand that all state licenses and government privileges must be unrestricted, as defined in the licensure requirement section of the Governing Policies Regarding the Certificate of Added Qualifications Program, in order for me to be eligible to register for, earn, and maintain the Certificate of Added Qualifications. I understand that I am responsible for notifying NCCPA of any restrictions placed on my licenses or privileges to practice within 60 days of the final action taken by the licensing or privileging authority and that I may be subject to sanctions if such notification is not timely provided.”
In addition, PAs must request that the government agency provide NCCPA with verification of the privilege status. PAs will be required to acknowledge this requirement by clicking on the following statement: “I understand that it is my responsibility to assure that any government agency(ies) from which I hold privileges to practice as a PA provide NCCPA with the required verification of unrestricted privilege(s), as defined in the licensure requirement section of the Governing Policies Regarding the Certificate of Added Qualifications Program. ”
PAs can download a template from our Web site to be completed by the government agency and returned to NCCPA as verification of the government agency privilege.
