All types of practitioners from all dates electronically available would be appreciated. Specific items to be included in data set:

If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please email me if the cost will exceed $50.

The law requires that you respond to and fulfill this request "as promptly as possible." If you expect a significant delay in responding to and fulfilling this request, please contact me by phone or via email with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records.
If you deny any or all of this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.
Thank you for considering my request.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Hello:

These records can be accessed via our data download at https://www.in.gov/pla/license/download-license-files/

Please note that email addresses and phone numbers cannot be released in accordance with state law.

Also note that some of these professions are regulated by other state agencies, such as EMTs with DHS. PLA also does not house Medicaid information.

Dear Ms. Turner,

Upon a quick search of only a few healthcare providers on the provided website, searching for only physicians and Physician's assistants, the data download fee was over $1800. Is there any waiver of fees for increased public access, healthcare transparency and equal health care access?

Kamran Ahmed

From: Indiana Professional Licensing Agency

Unfortunately, no. This is the fee that is required to be paid by all individuals or entities requesting the amount of data you have requested.
