Proposed Legislative Rule §13CSR9, Telehealth Practice; Requirements; Definitions

Also available for comment is a modification to Legislative Rule §13-2, Disciplinary, Complaint and Contested Case Hearing Procedures for Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants.  The modification removes the sixty day requirement in §13-2-5.9 to review and investigate complaints.  W.Va. Code §30-1-5(c) requires boards to send a status report to the party filing the complaint and the respondent within six months of receipt, and issue a final ruling within one year of the status report.  Written comments may be emailed to help@wvbot.org or through Contact Us on the homepage of this website.
