Chapter 360-29 BAD CHECKS

Rule 360-29-.01 Policy

It is the policy of the Georgia Composite Medical Board to pursue its legal remedies under O.C.G.A. § 16-9-20 when a bad check is issued in payment of examination, license or renewal fees, application fees, or similar fees, and to take such other action as it is outlined in the following rules and regulations. Any person issuing a bad check will be subject to the service charge as provided in O.C.G.A. § 16-9-20(a)(2).

Rule 360-29-.02 Applicants for Licensure, Certification or Permits

If an applicant for licensure, certification or permit issues a bad check to cover the required fees, such applicant shall not be issued a license, certificate or permit until the applicant has paid the appropriate fees and service charge. If a license, certificate or permit is issued prior to determining that the applicant issued a bad check, such license, certificate or permit will be deemed to have been issued in error and deemed not current unless the applicant pays the appropriate fees and service charge with ten (10) days after the applicant received a notice mailed by certified or registered mail. The applicant must pay the appropriate fees and service charge by cashier's check or money order.

Rule 360-29-.03 License, Certificate or Permit Renewal

If a licensee, certificate or permit holder attempts to renew a license, certificate or permit by the issuance of a bad check, the license, certificate or permit will not be renewed until all fees due including any applicable late renewal fees plus service charge are paid. If the license, certificate or permit is renewed and reissued to the licensee, certificate or permit holder, he or she will be notified by certified or registered mail that the renewed license, certificate or permit will be deemed not current unless all fees due for renewal plus the service charge are remitted with ten (10) days after receipt of the notice. The licensee, certificate or permit holder must pay the fees and service charge by cashier's check or money order.
