TBCE Reports: CE for New Licensees
Wednesday, May 07, 2014 11:18 PM

Because your [new licensees]  first renewal cycle is pro-rated and is usually not a full twelve months long, completion of your CE requirements is not required until after your first license renewal. When you renew your license for the second time, you then should have completed sixteen (16) hours of approved CE, including the four (4) hours in Board-required topics (ethics, risk management, and documentation/coding).

You must also complete at least eight (8) hours of CE in Medicare coding/documentation within twelve (12) months of when you received your license. These hours can count towards your regular CE requirement.

Therefore, if you are born in February and licensed on November 1, 2013, you are required to complete eight (8) hours of Medicare coding/documentation CE by November 1, 2014. You would then need to complete another eight (8) hours of CE, including the four (4) Board-required hours by February 1, 2015.

TBCE Reports: Designated Doctor Facility Issues
Wednesday, May 07, 2014 11:16 PM

Recently, a question was asked about whether Designated Doctors needed separate facility registrations wherever performing these services. The Board opined that DDs do NOT need separate facility registrations for each location; following the Board rule on out-of-facility practice (Board Rule 80.7) is appropriate for DDs.

Note, this rule requires licensees to submit information such as the name of the location, number of visits per week, contact information, etc to the Board within 10 days of services rendered. However, the Board also opined that it did not feel it was necessary for DDs to submit this information within 10 days. We will be considering an amendment to this rule during our upcoming rule recodification to determine whether to exempt DDs from the requirements of Board Rule 80.7. In the meantime, we will not be enforcing the reporting requirements of the rule for DDs, but DDs should be aware that their work is currently considered out-of-facility.
