      RELATES TO: KRS 218A.205, 311.450

      STATUTORY AUTHORITY: KRS 218A.202(2), 311.410(4)

      NECESSITY, FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY: KRS

311.450 requires the board to send notices to all podiatrists licensed by the

board to their last known address on or before June 1 of each year. KRS 218A.202(2) requires

licensees that prescribe controlled substances to be registered with the Kentucky All-Schedule

Prescription Electronic Reporting System (KASPER). KRS 218A.205 requires the

board to place restrictions on licensees and applicants that have specific

convictions or restrictions related to prescribing or dispensing controlled

substances. This administrative regulation requires all licensed podiatrists to

complete the annual renewal notice and return it, along with the annual renewal

fee to the board. This administrative regulation further establishes an annual

license renewal fee and a delinquent penalty fee.

 

      Section 1. (1) The annual renewal fee, in

the amount of $150 shall be attached to the completed annual renewal notice

when the notice is returned to the board by the podiatrist seeking licensure

renewal.

      (2) The annual renewal fee shall be made

payable to the Kentucky State Treasurer in United States currency by certified

check, cashier's check, postal money order, personal check, or credit card.

      (3) All information requested on the

annual renewal notice form shall be furnished to the board when the completed

annual renewal notice form is returned to the board, together with a statement

of compliance with the continuing education administrative regulations of the

board.

      (4) Every renewal application shall

include proof of current registration with the Kentucky All-Schedule

Prescription Electronic Reporting System (KASPER) administered by the Cabinet

for Health and Family Services.

 

      Section 2. (1) Failure to complete the

requirements for annual renewal of the license by July 1 of each year shall

result in a delinquent penalty fee of $100.

      (2) A licensee shall immediately report

to the board any conviction or disciplinary action on a license held by the

applicant relating to prescribing or dispensing controlled substances.

 

      Section 3. (1) Pursuant to KRS

218A.205(3)(e), a licensee:

      (a) Convicted after July 20, 2012 of any

felony offense relating to controlled substances shall be permanently banned

from prescribing or dispensing a controlled substance by the board;

      (b) Convicted after July 20, 2012 of any

misdemeanor offense relating to prescribing or dispensing a controlled

substance shall have his or her authority to prescribe controlled substances suspended

for at least three (3) months, and shall be further restricted as determined by

the board; or

      (c) Who has had any disciplinary

limitation placed on a application or license by a licensing board of another

state that resulted from improper, inappropriate, or illegal prescribing or

dispensing of controlled substances shall be subject to a restriction on the

license that is at least as restrictive in time and scope as that placed on the

license by the licensing board of the other state.

      (2) In addition to the actions listed in

subsection (1) of this section, the board may take additional disciplinary

action against a licensee pursuant to KRS 311.480. (4
