The Missouri Board of Healing Arts has become aware that someone has been calling licensees claiming to be from the Board of Healing Arts or the Division of Professional Registration and reporting that the licensee or office is under investigation. The caller says that the licensee or office must post a bond and attempts to obtain payment over the telephone or provides information of where to send the purported bond.
Please be aware that this is a scam. There is no such bond associated with any type of Board activity. Additionally, under no circumstances will the Board contact licensees and solicit any kind of payment over the phone.
Please see the attached Liaison Information Report titled "Scammers Pose as Medical Board Members and Law Enforcement", dated January 27, 2021, to learn how to protect yourself and your practices.
If you are a current licensee, please fill out the short 1 minute survey below.
