The Board is required by statute to prescribe a form used to notify patients or guardians that a doctor has a direct financial interest in an outside procedure or treatment agency where patients or guardians are referred. A financial disclosure form was reviewed and approved by the Board for immediate use.
Knowingly failing to disclose this information can lead to discipline under the Board's definition of unprofessional conduct.
The Board voted to finalize four administrative rules. They will be sent to the Governor's Regulatory Review Council for review and approval.
The proposed rules are:
- R4-16-102- Rehearing or Review of Board Decision
