Group Payments for Medic Renewals

The application for EMS agencies to indicate that they are paying for the renewals for Georgia licensed medics is now online and this page will detail the steps that are necessary for you to complete this process.

Step 1 - Make sure all of your personnel have added their email to their profile

  • Each medic at your agency will need to complete the steps on this page to add their email to their profile.

Step 2 - Make sure all of your personnel are on the roster for your EMS agency license

  • The Authorized Agent for an EMS agency will need to login to the Georgia EMS License Management System (LMS) at www.mygemsis.org/lms 
  • Click on Agencies on the left, then on the name of the agency
  • Under the Agencies link on the left, click on Personnel
  • Check the roster to make sure all of your employees are listed on there...if they are, proceed to Step 3
  • If all of your employees are not listed on the roster, you will need to do the following:
    • If you have 10 or fewer medics to add to your roster:
      • Click on Applications, then on the applications for the EMS agency
      • Find the application entitled "Add Medics to Agency Roster" and click Apply Now, and complete the application - the application can take some time to process, so you will need to wait until all of your personnel on your roster before proceeding to Step 3.
    • If you have more than 10 medics to add to your roster:
      • Create an Excel spreadsheet with 3 columns (First Name, Last Name, Georgia medic license number) and list all of the personnel that need to be added to your license. Email this spreadsheet along with a brief introduction email to dph-phemsinfo@dph.ga.gov
      • After we add the personnel to your roster, we will email letting you know you can proceed to Step 3

Step 3 - See which medics are expiring

  • The Authorized Agent will need to login to LMS, and then click on Agencies, then click on the specific agency, and then click ​on Personnel on the left.
  • You will then look at the expiration date column - if you click on the column, you will be able to sort the column by the expiration date (click a 2nd time to sort the opposite direction). Make a list of all of your personnel that will expire in the following year.

Step 4 - Indicate which medics you are going to pay for

  • The Authorized Agent will need to login to LMS, click on Applications and then the agency applications, and find the application entitled "Agency - Indicate Medics for Renewal Payments"
  • Complete the application and Submit the application.

NOTE: If you indicate medics that are not set to expire the following year or who have already expired, you will not be refunded any fee you have already paid.

Step 5 - Make payment

  • After we receive your application, we will send you an invoice for your agency to pay $75/medic. Payments are not refundable and are not transferrable.
  • Mail your invoice and payment (money order, business check or cashier's check only) to the following address:

Group Payments for Medic Renewals
C/O Georgia Office of EMS and Trauma
1680 Phoenix Blvd, Ste 200
Atlanta, GA 30349

Step 6 - Medics Complete their renewal

  • Renewals for medics are NOT complete until the medic submits a full application for Medic Renewal and it is processed by our office
  • Medics will need to login to the LMS (www.mygemsis.org/lms), and they will click on Applications. They will see TWO applications for license renewal - the one that they need to select is called "Georgia Medic Renewal - for medics paid for by an agency (2020)". This application will allow them to complete the renewal process that is detailed here (with the exception of the payment).

NOTE: If the medics complete the regular renewal application, they will be charged the renewal fee. We are unable to issue refunds to agencies if a medic does not use the correct renewal application. Also, please note that if the medic does not renew their license prior to the expiration deadline, they will need to complete a late renewal application and will be charged the full amount. We are unable to apply a group payment for renewal to a medic's late renewal application, and we are unable to refund fees paid by an agency if a medic fails to renew prior to the deadline.

Step 7 - Verify your medics have renewed their license

  • The Authorized Agent will need to login to LMS, and then click on Agencies, then click on the specific agency, and then click ​on Personnel on the left.
  • You will then look at the expiration date column - if you click on the column, you will be able to sort the column by the expiration date (click a 2nd time to sort the opposite direction). See which of your medics have not renewed their license yet.
