WisDOT offers health care specialists a new online service to certify disabled parking eligibility

Doctors, advanced practice nurses, chiropractors and other specialists can now easily certify their patients’ eligibility status for disabled parking through the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s (WisDOT) new online process at https://app.wi.gov/disabledparking.

Streamlining the certification process for health care specialists means medical professionals can go online to certify the renewal and issuance of disabled parking cards and plates. This helps patients get their disabled parking cards within days and reduces paperwork. By avoiding a trip to a DMV service center or the need to mail an application to WisDOT, the new system is a tremendous time saver all around.

WisDOT’s new Disabled Parking Certification System joins many other WisDOT online tools and services that are available 24/7. Health care specialists are required to complete and sign an Eligibility Certification every four years for a patient to receive permanent disabled parking privileges. This new online service simplifies the process and improves customer service.

There is no fee to renew permanent disabled parking cards, although a counter service fee will be included if renewed in person at a DMV service center. Customers will now receive their corresponding renewal stickers within 3-4 business days after their health specialists complete the online Eligibility Certification. Traditional paper verification can take up to 7-10 business days.

When accessing transportation-related forms, only websites with .gov extension are from official state websites. Others with .org and .com are not official and may have extra charges for forms or list information that is outdated or incorrect. In addition to the expanding services on its website, WisDOT connects with customers on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/WisDOT) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/WisconsinDOT) @WisconsinDOT.
