A Diplomate who does not renew their certification by their expiration date forfeits all benefits and services provided by NCCAOM certification including but not limited to a Diplomate designation. A former Diplomate is anyone who was once Certified by NCCAOM since 1982 and is currently at terminated status. A former Diplomate may apply to return to Active NCCAOM status through the NCCAOM Reinstatement to Active Certification process. 

The NCCAOM® Reinstatement Application expires 12 months from the date of submission. All reinstatement requirements must be met within the 12-month application period, or a new application must be submitted when the original application expires. Application fees are non-refundable.
