OAR 852-050-0013
Uniformed Services

(1) No license renewal fees will be assessed while the licensee is on active duty with the Uniformed Services of the United States:
(a) As a courtesy, the Board will send annual renewal notices to the licensee’s current reported address of record. To avoid being placed into lapsed license status, the licensee must return a completed and signed renewal form with proof of active duty status to the Board within stated timelines;
(b) Licensees under this rule who are moved into lapsed status by the Board may be reinstated at no cost by meeting the requirements of this rule; and
(c) Nothing in this rule may be construed to waive any other reinstatement or reactivation requirements for Oregon licensure.
(2) Written notification to the Board is required within 60 days of the date of discharge in order to change the license to its former status without fee or penalty. If notification is received by the Board more than 60 days from the date of discharge, but within the license renewal period in which the discharge becomes effective, the license may be changed to its former status by paying all fees and penalties appropriate for a license of that status.
(3) If a licensed optometric physician fails to notify the Board in writing of the change of status within 60 days from the date of discharge, or within the license renewal period in which the discharge becomes effective, whichever is the longer period of time, that person must take an examination and pay the examination fee as required by ORS 683.060 (Examination of applicants).
(4) Licensees eligible for the military fee waiver may waive the right to waive fees by notifying the Board of their uniformed service and affirmation of waiver.
