What are Expirables?

    • License to practice
    • Malpractice Insurance
    • DEA certification
    • Board certification
  • Medical Staff Bylaws at each Fairview entity require practitioners to maintain current expirables at all times. Failure to renew license or insurance will result in suspension of medical staff privileges at the Fairview entity(ies) until renewal is verified by the Fairview System Credentialing Office.
  • The Fairview System Credentialing Office (FSCO) staff monitor expiration dates and request renewals from practitioners prior to expiration.
