The Department’s Division of Medical Quality Assurance (MQA) Unlicensed Activity (ULA) program under authority of Florida Statute 456.065 protects Florida residents and visitors from the potentially serious consequences of receiving health care services from an unlicensed person. The ULA program investigates all unlicensed health care activity complaints and allegations and works in conjunction with law enforcement and the state attorney’s offices to prosecute individuals practicing without a license.

The Department has several resources to combat unlicensed activity:

  • Consumers are encouraged to use the Department’s website, www.FlHealthSource.gov, where they can conveniently view the license information of their health care practitioner.
  • Complaints may be filed anonymously by completing and mailing the complaint form on the Department’s website, or by calling 1-877-HALT-ULA. Complaints may also be filed via email at HALTULA@flhealth.gov.

The Department works to protect, promote and improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county and community efforts. During 2014, the Department is recognizing 125 years of public health in Florida with educational opportunities and events. Please visit www.FLHealth125.gov for more information.
