Meeting was called to order at 12:40 p.m. by Chair, Dr. Dennis Harper.  

The minutes from the January 14, 2004 board meeting were reviewed.  Motion was made by Dr. Sterling to have the sentence that states, “and the Chiropractic Assistants are allowed to also diagnose and perform diagnostic procedures if under the direct supervision of a Chiropractic Physician” stricken from the minutes.  Seconded by Dr. Hollingsworth, carried. 

The board approved the minutes with the changes noted above made. 

Ms. Jacobsen gave the legislative report.  The Senate committee’s are scheduled to finish business on Friday.  The Legislature should finish next week.  There is legislation running at this time that would add the drinking and wastewater operators licensing board to the Bureau.  DEQ will maintain the licensing of the facilities, but the Bureau will be licensing the operators.  This new board will impact all board budgets, by taking a share of the Bureau’s indirect expenses.  The Bureau has requested additional staff positions, which will result in additional personnel expense for the boards.  

Ms. Jacobsen gave the Investigation report.  There were 15 complaints in fiscal year 2000.  One is waiting legal review.  There were 15 complaints for fiscal year 2002.  Two of those are still under investigation.  There were 14 complaints in fiscal year 2003.  Five of those complaints have been closed, seven are under investigation and two are waiting legal review.  There have been 13 complaints so far for fiscal year 2004, and all are currently under investigation. The Bureau is reviewing complaints on a regular basis, and will be requesting Board determinations prior to closing a complaint.  

Motion was made by Dr. Hollingsworth to approve the investigation report.  Seconded by Dr. Sterling, carried. 

Ms. Jacobsen gave the financial report.  The board has $16,780.93 left in appropriation, and a cash balance of $70,340.77.  The board should finish out this fiscal year in the black.  

Motion was made by Dr. Hollingsworth to approve the financial report.  Seconded by Dr. Sterling, carried. 

Dr. Sterling did a comparison of the fees from Fee Facts and the Idaho Industrial Commission.  Dr. Sterling will give this comparison to Sandee who will distribute to the rest of the board.  Fee Facts does have a list of fees for the State of Idaho.  The Idaho Industrial Commission does not have a list of fee’s for CMT codes 98941 through 98943.  Dr. Sterling noted that the Idaho Industrial Commission has three different codes listed for Radiology.  One code is for taking X-rays.  The second code is to read the X-ray, and the third code is for doing both.  

Dr. Sterling noted that the manual to be sent out for Peer Review training is complete and awaiting Dr. Mayo’s approval.  The board asked to review the manual before sending out to the Peer Review Committee members.  Dr. Sterling will send the manual to Sandee to be distributed to the board for review.  

Continuing education requests for approval were reviewed.  

Motion was made by Dr. Hollingsworth to approve 16 hours of continuing education for the seminar entitled ACC-RAC 2004 “Best Practices”, being presented by the Association of Chiropractic Colleges.  Seconded by Dr. Sterling, carried. 

Motion was made by Dr. Sterling to deny the request for 30 hours of continuing education for the seminar entitled Crucial Conversations Mastery Course Approval, being presented by Extraordinary Development, Inc.  Seconded by Dr. Hollingsworth, carried. 

Motion was made by Dr. Hollingsworth to have Sandee E-mail the respondent back asking him to contact the person in charge of the Whole Body Kinesio Taping seminar, and have that person send in a request for continuing education approval.  Seconded by Dr. Sterling, carried. 

Applicant CHIR-RJC-10-23-2003 was reviewed for licensure.  It was noted that the board has the authority to request this applicant come before the board, or require the applicant to take an examination.  The board discussed having the applicant take a State Examination that would be administered by the board.  

Motion was made by Dr. Hollingsworth to have the Bureau contact the applicant and request he appear before the board.  The board would administer an examination at that time to determine the applicant is of good moral character and capable of again practicing in the State of Idaho.

There was no second and the motion died. 

Motion was made by Dr. Hollingsworth to have the board appoint two board members to attend a special meeting at which time an examination will be conducted to determine if the applicant is of good moral character and capable of again practicing in the State of Idaho.  Seconded by Dr. Sterling, carried.  Dr. Hollingsworth and Dr. Sterling will be the two board members to attend this special meeting and conduct the examination. 

Applicant DCA-GJH-1-10-2003 was reviewed for licensure.  

Motion was made by Dr. Hollingsworth to go into executive session to consider application records exempt from disclosure as provided in chapter 3, title 9, Idaho Code.  Seconded by Dr. Sterling, carried. 

Motion was made by Dr. Hollingsworth to come out of executive session.  Seconded by Dr. Sterling, carried.
