Whether a chiropractor can utilize Mobile MRI services is not at issue. The legality lies in whether ordering services involves any financial considerations that may influence your use of the service. Things to consider before treading into dangerous territory:
These are the more common issues seen by the Board. You are strongly advised to seek legal counsel in any situation in which you may be considering such an option. SPECIAL NOTE: It has come to the attention of the Board that some doctors are being shown Board letters in which cases have been dismissed. DO NOT BE MISLED INTO BELIEVING IN ANY WAY, that this represents a policy or stance of the Board. Any such letter is very specific to an individual recipient, while other similar cases did result in Board Action. Each case will be considered on its own merits and evidence.
There is a way to avoid penalty fees and disciplinary action if you follow these instructions carefully.
First, you MUST get the licensing fee to the Board prior to (or postmarked prior to) December 31. In this way, you avoid late penalty fees. However, you are STILL NOT AUTHORIZED TO PRACTICE YET.You must complete the form with the affirmation that you have completed your CE requirements. If this is NOT the case, then do NOT fill this form out yet. Take whatever measures are necessary to complete your CE, then you can fill the form out accurately and submit it to the Board, and return to practice once your renewal is verified. (You can verify your renewal by going online to the Boards website and verifying your credentials. BE ADVISED THAT IF YOU HAVE NOT COMPLETED YOUR CE, BUT COMPLETE THE APPLICATION STATING THAT YOU HAVE DONE SO, YOU MAY BE SUBJECT TO SEVERE PENALTIES!
