Oklahoma’s Medical Community Has New Tools on Medical Board Website

OKLAHOMA CITY – February 21, 2011 – The Oklahoma Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision has launched two new online services providing simple government transactions for the medical community. The new Allied Professional initial licensing system and bill pay system enhance the wide array of services the Medical Board provides on their website located at http://www.okmedicalboard.org/.


“We strive to make government interaction with our office easier, and our website tools provide a great opportunity for us to offer seamless customer service 24/7, “ said Lyle Kelsey, Executive Director, “The new licensing system and online bill pay options are just two new additions to our already vast amount of online resources we provide to the community.”


The Allied Professional initial licensing system allows allied professionals to apply for a new license or reinstate a previous license online through a simple four-step process. The bill pay system provides the medical community and customers with the option to pay for a variety of board fees all in a matter of minutes.


The online services provide users with the option to pay with Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, Diners Club, checking or savings accounts. The payments are processed through a secure payment engine, which abides by rigorous policies and procedures to ensure that users of the system can be confident their payments are safe, private, and secure.

The Allied Professional initial licensing system and bill pay system are products of a partnership between the Oklahoma Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision and OK.gov, Oklahoma’s Official website.
