Important Information on Fraudulent Emails to Practitioners

The Florida Department of Health (Department), Division of Medical Quality Assurance, is warning Florida healthcare practitioners about a fraudulent email and phishing attempt sent to Florida healthcare practitioners.

Scammers are posing as the Department and offering to provide licensees with “important information” concerning a temporary change to your license status. This email did not originate from the Department.

Healthcare practitioners will never receive unsolicited calls or emails from the Department where personal information is requested, payments are demanded, or threats against your license are made. We want to protect our health care practitioners from fraud schemes. If you receive an email that looks suspicious, do not click on any links or attachments, or provide any personal information. If you have any questions, please contact the DOH customer contact number at (850) 488-0595.
