Disclosure of Social Security Number or Federal Employer Identification Number:
State law requires mandatory disclosure of a Social Security Number (SSN) or Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) for each physician. The number is used for tax enforcement purposes, for purposes of compliance with any judgment or order for family support in accordance with Section 17520 of the Family Code, or for verification of licensure or examination status by a licensing examination entity which uses a national examination and where licensure is reciprocal with the requesting state.
In addition, without a SSN, you will not be able to apply online or check the status of your application online. A social security number is required to register for the BreEZe online application system.
The Medical Board's Licensing Program protects the consumer through the proper licensing of physicians and surgeons and certain allied health care professions.
