Wednesday, September 17, 2014 08:27 AM

The following section would be repealed.  Different language to "replace it" has been proposed elsewhere.

(a) A licensee who fails to meet the minimum continuing education requirements imposed by §73.3 of this title (relating to Continuing Education) shall have his or her license placed in a probated status for a period of 12 months. Renewal of a license will be issued contingent on compliance with this section. 

(b) During probation under this section, a licensee may continue to practice provided that he or she enrolls in, attends and satisfactorily completes the required continuing education requirements within the probationary period. 

(c) Upon submission to the board of written verification of the licensee's attendance at and completion of the required continuing education requirements, the board shall fully reinstate the licensee's license.

(d) If a licensee fails to have his or her license reinstated during any probationary period, the licensee's license shall be considered expired from the beginning date of the probationary year, and the licensee must obtain a new license as provided by §73.2 of this title (relating to Renewal of License).

(e) Continuing education courses obtained to satisfy any deficiency in a prior reporting year may not be applied toward the continuing education requirements for the next reporting year.

(f) A licensee may not be placed on probationary status for two consecutive years. If a licensee who was on probationary status under this section for the prior reporting year is in non-compliance with §73.3 of this title for the current reporting year, his or her license shall be considered expired and shall not be renewed except as provided by subsection (h) of this section.

(g) A licensee subject to subsection (f) of this section shall not practice chiropractic until his or her license is renewed or a new license is obtained as provided by §73.2 of this title.

(h) A licensee subject to subsection (f) of this section may renew his or her license upon completion of all deficient courses and as provided by §73.2 of this title.
