The purpose of the Kentucky Board of Licensure for Occupational Therapy (KBLOT) is to administer and enforce the statutory authority and to monitor the needs of the consuming public. The board examines and licenses all eligible candidates for entry into the profession of occupational therapy. It recommends appropriate changes in the law to assure fairness and equality. The board conducts formal hearings when necessary and prosecutes by due process any violators of KRS 319A.

Important message regarding your 2017 renewal:
Your renewal can be submitted online with your eServices account at https://oop.ky.gov/Eservices/Default.aspx. The Department for Professional Licensing suggests completing your renewal at least two weeks before the expiration date.
Below is useful information regarding your renewal process -
1) OP ID number: On your email /letter renewal notice, you will find your OP ID number for login. This is a six digit number that identies you in our system.
2) If you have forgotten your User Name or Password: click the Forgot Password link on the eServices log in screen - you will need your OP ID number that was provided in your email/letter renewal notice - once you enter this six digit number you will be prompted to answer your security question to access your account.
3) Renewal Date is not your expiration date explained: Your Expiration date is the last date you may practice and bill for services and it is shown to the public and employers at online verification. If your employer is telling you that you cannot practice beyond your renewal date, that is an employer and employee issue. Medicaid has agreed and is using the online verification expiration date for their billing. The expiration date represents the end of the grace period found in your Board’s licensure regulations allowing for board imposed late fees or penalties, but you maintain the ability to practice until the shown expiration date.
The board is in the promulgation process for changes to many of the Kentucky Administrative Regulations (KARs) that correspond to 319A Kentucky Revised Statute (KRS) and the practice of occupational therapy within the state.
One change that will have immediate impact for individuals licensed to practice occupational therapy under 319A KRS is new regulation wording of 201 KAR 28:200 that pertains to KRS 210.366 --Training program in suicide assessment, treatment, and management -- Administrative regulations. This KRS can be found by clicking here.
The board is accepting applications for continuing education programs related to this change and will post approved continuing education programs on the board�s webpage as they become available.
