Provider certification is valid for 3 years. In the 90 days prior to your certification expiring, you will begin to receive communication from DODD via email regarding your renewal. It is very important to submit your application for recertification in a timely manner so that there is no lapse in your certification that would prevent you from providing services or submitting claims for reimbursement.
