Rule 80.7 – Repeal – Out-of-Facility Practice
Wednesday, September 17, 2014 11:08 AM

The following section would be repealed.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

(a) A licensed chiropractor who provides chiropractic services in a location other than a registered chiropractic facility (out-of-facility services) shall provide the board with a list that contains the following information, for each location:

  (1) its name;

  (2) its address and telephone number;

  (3) the name of the owner or manager; and

  (4) the planned or actual number of visits per week.

(b) At each location, the licensee must display, in the treating room, proof of licensure, such as a copy of his or her chiropractic license or the board-issued wallet size license, the name, facility number, address, and telephone number of the registered facility the licensee either owns or is employed at, and the consumer information required to be displayed under §75.8 of this title (relating to Public Interest Information). In lieu of displaying such information, the licensee may provide to each patient an information sheet that includes the information required by this subsection.

(c) A licensee must either be the registered owner of or be employed at a registered chiropractic facility in order to provide out-of-facility services. All out-of-facility services must be provided in conjunction with a registered facility.

(d) This section does not apply to a licensee who treats a patient at the patient's home, because the patient is physically unable to travel to the chiropractic facility.

(e) A licensee shall file the list required by subsection (a) of this section, no later than the 10th day after the date that out-of-facility services were first performed, and annually, thereafter, along with the licensee's annual license renewal.
