1. Go to http://psy.ky.gov

But your responsibility does not stop there! It is up to each individual licensee to contact providers and notify of the license number change. Please be sure and advise any and all providers (i.e., Medicare/Medicaid, insurance companies, CAQH, credentialing agencies, etc) that your license number has changed.
