Section 312.1 - Ownership of a Chiropractic Practice
No unlicensed individual may own a chiropractic practice regardless of the form in which the practice is established (individual ownership, partnership, corporation, etc.). This does not preclude a layperson from owning the facilities in which the practice is conducted, and the equipment provided. It does prohibit a layperson from being in a position of making and/or influencing decisions relating to diagnosis, or treatment of patients which are matters requiring chiropractic licensure.
