Patient Records Retention, Termination or Relocation of Practice, Death of a Physician
By Paul Lambert, FCA General Counsel   
Thursday, 08 January 2015

Q. How long must a doctor keep records? What is required when a doctor dies, retires, closes or sells the practice?

A. Records must be maintained for six years following the death or retirement of a physician, or the termination of a practice.

Two slightly conflicting Florida Statutes, a Rule of the Board of Chiropractic Medicine (BOCM) and HIPAA and Medicare regulations must be consulted to answer the question.

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.

Clarifying the Confusion on Massage
By Paul Lambert, FCA General Counsel   
Friday, 05 September 2014

Do you need a massage establishment license, fingerprinting, or a criminal background check if you do massage in your office?

      The Department of Health has sent letters to each massage establishment licensee advising that each person with an ownership interest in a massage establishment must be finger printed and have a criminal background check by January 31, 2015 based upon a bill that passed the 2014 Legislature. The letter  does not mention that physicians may be exempt from that requirement or massage establishment licensure altogether. However, the Department assures me that a memorandum is being mailed explaining the exemption. Following is a discussion of the bill and exemptions from it.
