A summary of the proposed amended regulation and the economic impact follows:

K.A.R. 100-15-1. Expiration dates.

The proposed amendment sets the expiration date for a resident active license. The remaining portions of the regulation remain unchanged and set the expiration date for licenses to practice medicine and surgery, osteopathic medicine, and chiropractic.

The agency does not employ an economist. In the lay opinion of agency staff, those who hold a resident active license will be directly affected by the expiration, although with no economic impact unless they renew and pay the applicable renewal fee. Every expiration cycle there is a percentage of licensees who choose not to renew their license for a variety of reasons. In the event a licensee chooses to renew their license the applicable licensure fees under a separate regulation, K.A.R. 100-11-1, will apply.

The Board of Healing Arts is comprised of medical practitioners and members of the public. The proposed amendment was discussed and gained initial approval at an open Board meeting of which members of the public can attend. Further, the agency is in communication with the relevant professional organizations in Kansas and intends to comply with all public hearing requirements involved in the promulgation process.
