Whether you simply allowed your license(s) to expire or you're facing some legal challenge effecting your medical license, DEA, Medicare participation, or Med/Mal coverage, you still have more options that you can imagine.Those options will most likely will not involve further medical practice.
Let me be explain, once you lose the ability to practice the clock starts to tick. The longer the clock ticks, the less likely practice reentry remains an option.
After two years, practice reentry usually becomes an even higher hurdle. You may be required to participate in a structured re-entry program managed by an organization specializing in those services. But, that, regaining your license, is not a guarantee of practice. Acceptance in payment plans... Medicare and private insurers will be necessary. Obtaining malpractice insurance may be more of a challenge. Hospitals and medical groups may be less willing to offer you a position and banks will be less likely to extend loans for what is effectively an entirely new practice.
There are all issues and questions you must evaluate for their impact on your personal situation, and you must make your future decisions on the best possible information.
Speak with your expert advisors, determine the process your case is likely to follow, and if resolution isn't expected or guaranteed in a manageable period of time, begin immediately to focus on a new career objective.
The greatest challenge most physicians face is that of opening their horizons, looking beyond healthcare or medicine and seeing the larger world in perspective - seeing the many interesting and rewarding career avenues they could follow.
