State Encourages Chiropractors to Renew Online
Online Renewals are Secure, Convenient, and Reduces Paper Consumption

OKLAHOMA CITY – July 25, 2008 – Renewing licenses is often a cumbersome paper intensive process and in its second year of online license renewals, the Oklahoma Board of Chiropractic Examiners (OBCE) reminds chiropractors that renewing online saves time, money, and consumption of paper. In fact, more than 300 sheets of paper, 300 envelopes, and 300 stamps have been saved in the first year of service, and saving the board $4,000 and 120 employee hours through the use of online renewals. Chiropractic physicians can access the online renewal service at http://www.chirorenewal.ok.gov.

“Instead of having our Chiropractic professionals mail in their renewal forms, we take pride in providing them with the option of renewing online,” said Beth Carter, Executive Director of OBCE. “We would like to encourage all Chiropractic professionals to renew online, because it is easy, secure, and fast.”

The online renewal service enables licensees to pay online with Visa, MasterCard and electronic check payments utilizing OK.gov’s secure payment engine. Upon completing the renewal process and approval from the board, licensees can print their certificates, thus reducing mailing and printing costs for the state.

The online renewal service is a product of a partnership between the OBCE and OK.gov, Oklahoma’s Official Web site managed by the eGovernment firm, NIC Inc. (NASDAQ: EGOV).
