A summary of the proposed regulation and the economic impact follows:
K.A.R. 100-6-6. Reentry active license; medicine and surgery and osteopathic medicine.
The purpose of this proposed regulation is to provide requirements for issuance, maintenance, and scope of the practice for a reentry active license for those practicing medicine and surgery and osteopathic medicine.
While a qualified economist would be required to provide an expert opinion of the regulation’s impact on economic activity and growth, in the lay opinion of agency staff, the regulation enhances business activities because the regulation implements an available license type for physicians who wish to reenter the practice of medicine.
This regulation was developed during a publicly noticed open meeting of the Board, and the Board is following all notice and open meeting hearing requirements associated with promulgating this regulation. Further it should be noted that the Board of Healing Arts is comprised of medical practitioners, business owners, and members of the public. The Board of Healing Arts intends to comply with all public hearing requirements involved in the regulation promulgation process.
