New Development: No Rescreening for Chiropractic Massage Establishment Owners
By Paul Lambert, FCA General Counsel   
Wednesday, 10 September 2014

Chiropractors choosing to accept non-patients for massage and keeping the massage establishment license will not need to again be fingerprinted and have a criminal background check by January 31, 2015. The Department of Health originally took the position that any physician fingerprinted and screened prior to January 1, 2013 would need to be fingerprinted again, because it was thought that the pre-2013 fingerprint and screening records are not available.

On September 8 the department notified the FCA that the pre-2013 records are available and will be used.
