Each generated verification is $60 and can be made online or via check to our Administrative office. A verification submitted online will be available for 24 hours. You must download and print your document prior to the online verification expiring. A verification submitted via check will take up to 7-10 business days to generate a response.
UPDATED MAY 13, 2022: A letter of verification no longer has an expiration date due to the new Certification Maintenance (CM) model. Diplomates are required to complete CM components every year to maintain their ABOMS certification. If a Diplomate does not complete their CM requirements in any given year, then they will not have an Active letter of verification.
