311.681 Renewal of license -- Grace period -- Termination, suspension, revocation,
and reinstatement of license.
Any person licensed as an acupuncturist shall renew his or her license every two (2)
years. He or she shall pay to the board a renewal fee established by the board in
administrative regulations. The fee shall be paid on or before June 1 of the year in
which the license expires. A license that is not renewed within sixty (60) days after
June 1 shall expire for failure to renew in a timely manner.
The board shall notify the licensed acupuncturist of the renewal date at the
acupuncturist's last known address. The notice shall include an application and
notice of renewal fees. The licensed acupuncturist's failure to receive the renewal
notice shall not be considered an excuse to waive a late-payment fee.
A sixty (60) day grace period shall be allowed after June 1 of each year, during
which the acupuncturist may continue to practice. The acupuncturist may renew his
or her license upon payment of the renewal fee and a late-renewal fee as established
by the board in administrative regulation.
Any license not renewed by the end of the grace period shall terminate, and the
acupuncturist shall no longer be eligible to practice acupuncture in the
Commonwealth. An individual with a terminated license may have his or her
license reinstated upon payment of the renewal fee and a reinstatement fee as
established by the board in administrative regulations. A person who applies for
reinstatement shall not be required to take an examination as a condition of
reinstatement if the person's reinstatement application is made within five (5) years
of the date of termination.
A suspended license shall expire and terminate if not renewed. Renewal of a
suspended license shall not entitle the licensed practitioner to practice until the
suspension has ended or the right to practice has been restored by the board.
A revoked license shall terminate and may not be renewed. If a revoked license is
reinstated, the licensed practitioner shall pay the renewal fee and the reinstatement
fee under subsections (1) and (4) of this section.
If a person fails to reinstate his or her license within five (5) years of its termination,
the license shall not be renewed, restored, reissued, or reinstated. The person shall
obtain a new license under the conditions established in KRS 311.674.
