St. Mark's Hospital - February 12, 2017

As of January 1, 2017, the DEA will only mail out one renewal notification letter, approximately 65 days prior to the expiration date. The letter will be sent to the “mail” address for each DEA registrant. The DEA will no longer send its second renewal notification by mail. Instead, an electronic reminder to renew will be sent to the email address associated with the DEA registration. Failure to renew prior to the expiration date will result in the original DEA registration not being reinstated. Additionally, as of January 1, 2017, renewal applicants will need to apply for a new DEA registration if attempting to renew after the expiration date or if DEA has not received paper renewal applications by the day of expiration. Consequently, prescriptions written and dispensed for controlled substances by registrants whose license has expired will be implicated.

Please ensure that you maintain current physical addresses and email addresses with the DEA, that you renew your DEA registration in a timely manner, and that you’re responsive to the notices you may also receive from the CPC (HCA’s central processing center) about soon to expire credentials.

To update your name, address, and other DEA registration information, have your current DEA registration expiration date available and visit
