Will HPRP protect my license?

Yes, HPRP can help protect your license, but there are also other options that can help protect your license. The untold truth is that Michigan’s Health Professionals Recovery Program (HPRP) is a long, intrusive and expensive program. Many find it very difficult to maintain the requirements to prevent reporting and licensing action with the board.

Your colleagues and employer may have suggested voluntary enrollment in the HPRP program and may have told you that HPRP is the only way to prevent licensing action. This is a common misconception about the HPRP program. There are other options that can be just as effective in preventing licensing action. They are often less intrusive and less expensive than HPRP.

Another misconception is that HPRP may be cheaper than hiring an attorney to defend a licensing action. Depending on the requirements that HPRP imposes, HPRP could end up costing you significantly more than an attorney.

Please contact a professional licensing attorney to help you evaluate whether HPRP is a good option. All too often we are called after a HPRP agreement has been signed and the licensee can no longer maintain the requirements. It becomes more difficult and expensive to attempt to reduce HPRP requirements once an agreement has been signed. Failure of the licensee to comply with the Health Professionals Recovery Program requirements can result in suspension and revocation of their license.
