Please be advised we are currently switching to electronic renewals, therefore would request that you not submit hardcopy applications.  Invoices are expected to be sent at a minimum of 70 days prior to expiration date of license and at that time you can go to to renew your TPA license.  Once the renewal is approved the Department will no longer email the license directly as you will be able to go to the above website to print.

If you have any questions regarding the registration of a TPA, please contact Connie Wright, Admission Coordinator at .
