What is the Health Practitioners Monitoring Program (HPMP)?

The Health Practitioners’ Monitoring Program is intended to help healthcare professionals with substance use disorders, mental health conditions, or physical conditions that may be impairing their ability to effectively practice. HPMP refers practitioners for treatment and provides ongoing monitoring of treatment progress.

In order to be eligible, a practitioner must hold a current, active license, certification, or registration issued by a health regulatory board in Virginia or a multistate licensure privilege.

Mellette PC attorneys work with clients who may need assistance due to an impairment because of chemical dependency, physical, or mental disability. On your behalf, we may seek a stay of disciplinary action or resolution of an investigation with no action if you complete the terms of your HPMP contract.

HPMP is not right for everyone. You should be sure you understand all requirements of participation in HPMP prior to joining.  

Providers should promptly seek any health care they need and work with their health care providers and a professional licensing attorney to determine if HPMP is right for them, or if other options would be a better fit for their specific situation.
