Statutory Denial

Section 456.0635, Florida Statutes, effective July 1, 2012, provides that board refusal to issue a license, certificate, or register a candidate for admission to the licensure examination is permissible if the applicant has been convicted of a felony, or entered a plea of guilty or nolo contendere under Chapter 409, F.S., regardless of adjudication. Termination for cause of Florida Medicaid program violation, or other medical malpractice abuse is reason for statutory denial. This law goes on to list other violations of law which may bar you from obtaining a Florida Medical license. See
