Your first renewal cycle is pro-rated and is usually not a full twelve months long, so completion of your Continuing Education (CE) requirements is not required until after your first license renewal. When you renew your license for the second time, you should have completed sixteen (16) hours of approved CE, including the four (4) hours in Board-required topics.

Therefore, if you are born in February and licensed on November 1, 2014, you are required to complete eight (8) hours of Medicare coding/documentation CE by November 1, 2015. You would then need to complete another eight (8) hours of CE, including the four (4) Board-required hours by February 1, 2016.

If you have questions regarding these requirements, please read through Board Rule 75.5. You may also contact Jennifer Hertsenberg, Director of Licensure, at jennifer@tbce.state.tx.us or Sarah Matthews, Licensing Assistant, at sarah@tbce.state.tx.us. A list of all approved CE courses can be found on the TBCE website under the “Continuing Education” link.
