When you have been accused of an injustice that may cause you to lose your medical license, there are some steps you may be able to take that can prevent this from happening. Of course, it all depends on the type of infraction that has occurred. There are some situations that you unfortunately won’t be able to come back from, depending on the infraction in question. However, if the issue is a personal issue that can be worked on over time with professional help, you may be able to restore your medical license or ensure that you don’t have the license revoked in the first place.
Some of the most common situations where doctors are investigated by the board include substance abuse or insurance and billing fraud. In a circumstance such as a medical professional who is struggling with substance abuse, one of the ways that you may be eligible to keep your license is by proving that you are seeking treatment to improve your situation. If you are continuously seeking help in the form of a rehabilitation program and you can have someone vouch for your progress, you may be able to have the license restored over time. In addition, you will also have to have other medical professionals that you work with talk to the board about how your substance abuse is impacting your practice and whether or not they have seen improvement.
