TBCE Reports:  “Diplomates and Certifications"
Written by Editor   
Thursday, August 13, 2015 12:00 AM

One issue that TBCE Enforcement Committee members have seen is the improper use of the term “board certified” by licensees.  The use of this term is allowable if one currently holds a diplomate, fellow, or other certification or credential from a specialty board. Specialty boards award these certifications/credentials to licensees who have completed some specified amount of training and/or examination.

While the TBCE does not regulate these specialty boards, the use of the term “board certified” is regulated by the TBCE.  Many licensees describe themselves in advertising or in their CVs as a diplomate of or board certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE).  This is inappropriate, the TBCE states, considering it suggests advanced training.

TBCE Reports:  "Solicitation and Marketing for $10,000"
Written by Editor   
Tuesday, August 11, 2015 12:00 AM

The TBCE has released information regarding solicitation and marketing.

“In Texas, it is not only unethical, but it is also illegal for a chiropractor, attorney, physician, surgeon or private investigator to solicit an accident victim for the purpose of rendering chiropractic, medical or legal services before the 31st day after the date on which the accident or disaster occurred,” reports the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE).  Although the laws prohibiting the solicitation have been challenged as unconstitutional, they have been found to be constitutional and remain in effect.  

The TBCE reports that if an employee of your clinic participates in the activity of solicitation you can be held responsible for their actions.  Conviction of solicitation and/or barratry of professional employment laws can result in fines, jail time, and even revocation of your license.
