Rule Details

Rule Number: 13P012
Title: Administrative Rules for Naturopathic Physicians.
Type: Standard
Status: Adopted
Agency: Office of Professional Regulation
Legal Authority: 26 V.S.A. §§ 4125(b) and 4125(d).
Summary: This filing stems from recent revisions to the naturopathic physicians' governing statute, 26 V.S.A. § 4121 et seq. specifically, in 2012, the Vermont Legislature passed Act No. 116, which revised the law relating to the prescribing authority of naturopathic physicians. The law creates a special license endorsement which shall authorize a naturopathic physician to prescribe, dispense, and administer prescription medicines. The special license endorsement will be available to those who successfully pass a naturopathic pharmacology examination, which shall be established and made available by July 1, 2013. Section 60 of the Act, now 26 V.S.A. § 4125(d), requires that the Director of the Office of Professional regulation, in consultation and consistent with the recommendations of the Commissioner of Health, adopt rules regulating the special license endorsement. These rules are the rules required pursuant to Section 60 of the Act and 26 V.S.A. § 4125(d).
Persons Affected: Licensees, applicants, physicians, pharmacies, applicable health care facilities and patients.
Economic Impact: There should be no economic impact from these rules.
Posting date: May 15,2013
