Significant Change to DEA Registration Renewal Process:



Starting January 1, 2017, DEA will eliminate the informal grace period for registrants who failed to file a renewal application on time. The agency will now send only one renewal notice to a registrant's "mail to" address approximately 65 days prior to the expiration date, and no further reminders to renew the DEA registration will be sent.

The announcement also advises that registrants will no longer be able to renew their registration online after the expiration date, and paper renewal applications will not be accepted the day after the expiration date. Failure to file for a new application by midnight Eastern Time of the expiration date will result in the "retirement" of the registrant's DEA number and the registrant will have to apply for a completely new DEA registration. The original DEA registration will not be reinstated.

For questions or concerns regarding the above change, you must call your local DEA office.

Effective January 30, 2018 the New Mexico Medical Board made changes to 16.10.15 NMAC "Physician Assistants: Licensure and Practice Requirements". This change was made pursuant to the passage of House Bill 215 during the 2017 New Mexico Legislative Session.

The significant changes to the rule are as follows:

  • Expanded licensure status may be requested for primary care PAs who have more than three years of PA licensed practice which will allow the PA's to work in "collaboration" with another physician.
  • PAs with less than three years of experience or those working in specialties other than primary care must still work under a "supervising" physician.
  • "Primary Care" is defined as health care provided by a healthcare provider who typically acts as the first contact and principal point of continuing care for patients and coordinates other specialist care or services that the patient may require. Primary care specialties are combined internal medicine
  • and pediatrics, family medicine, general internal medicine, geriatrics (gerontology), general obstetrics and gynecology and general pediatrics.
  • "Collaboration" is defined in the new rule as the process by which a licensed physician and physician assistant jointly contribute to the health care and medical treatment of patients, provided that each collaborator performs actions that the collaborator is licensed or otherwise authorized to perform.
  • Section 12 of the new rule spells out the qualifications for collaborative physician assistant licensure and the licensure process for a collaborative physician assistant.
