Effective June 1, 2017, the Arkansas State Medical Board will roll out the first phase of their CCVS ordering changes. These changes have been discussed at various meetings over the past year and the time has come to make them effective for the benefit of our customers, physicians and the ASMB/CCVS. Prior to placing an order for a CCVS profile, the customer organization must provide the following items, if they are not current or on file with the CCVS:

  • Organization Specific Authorization and Release – the Organization name must be entered exactly as it is listed on the CCVS customer’s current account. Abbreviations (unless listed on their account), altered forms and blank lines will not be accepted. The A&R must be current within the two-year time from the signature date. Organization-specific A&Rs can be found on the CCVS website at
  • Current ASMB Authorization and Release – This is the Board A&R the physician is supposed to sign once a year at license renewal. It must be current within the two-year time frame with no alterations to the form. It can be found on the ASMB web site at
  • Current CCVS Attestation – Signature date must be within 120 days. Form can be found online or at
  • Current Curriculum Vitae (CV) – Must be dated within 120 days. Active Arkansas License – Please check the license status prior to ordering a CCVS profile. This verification is free at If you need assistance, please contact us.
In addition, the ASMB/CCVS new payment option of credit card only will be implemented on June 1, 2017.

CCVS Process Change

This announcement is to provide advance notice to CCVS customers of the Arkansas State Medical Board's intention to proceed with implementing the change in payment options previously discussed.  Implementation is expected within the next several weeks once the ASMB's Information Technology department completes their internal processes.  Methods and types of payment are authorized by the Arkansas State Medical Board.


This change will allow customers to pay for their profiles at the time of order via a CREDIT CARD ONLY payment type similar to purchasing items from online sources.  This enhancement will prevent the necessity for cancellations due to non-payment or lack of funds availability, and subsequently from having to reorder the profiles, delaying credentialing for the providers and organizations. The credit card that is entered at the time of ordering will have to have the funds available at that time for the order to post and the CCVS to begin working.  The customer may determine which credit card to enter for each order as the ASMB/CCVS will no longer store credit card information.  The credit cards that will be accepted are Visa, MasterCard and Discover. It is possible we will also add American Express at some point.  It is important that customers understand that the ASMB will no longer accept electronic funds transfers for order payments once this enhancement goes live.  Please make the appropriate changes in your ordering process.
