The Florida Department of Health, Division of Medical Quality Assurance (MQA), is pleased to offer third parties an option to pay for an applicant’s licensure fees.
Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants applicants may complete and submit an application for licensure online. Instead of providing their own credit card for payment, applicants will have the option to enter the ‘Other Payer Code’ to complete the application process. The application will be uploaded for processing and will stay in pending status until the other payer makes payment.
Interested parties will need to register with the Florida Board of Occupational Therapy by providing, in letter format, their Business Name, Mailing Address, Phone Number and Federal ID Number. In addition, we will need a contact person and email address. Please indicate if you require more than one payment code, or want a code expiration date, and sign the letter indicating that all of the provided information is true and correct. Please mail this letter to:
Florida Board of Occupational Therapy
4052 Bald Cypress Way, Bin # C-05
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3255
Once the school/employer is registered, the Florida Board of Occupational Therapy will mail a notification letter including the payment code and instructions on how to submit payment. The school/employer will need to provide their “Other Payer Code” to their students/employees prior to them applying. The MQA Customer Call Center will not be able to provide this code to callers.
Schools/employers who elect to use the Other Payer Code will be required to log-on to MQA’s secure on-line services website to approve and submit payment. The payer will be able to deselect applicants who are not eligible to use their ‘Other Payer Code’. Then the payer will be prompted to a Credit Card payment screen where they can pay by using Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express.
Schools/employers wishing to pay by check will need to send a cashiers check or money order along with copy of their invoice to the address below:
