(2) The licensee must notify the Board at least ten (10) days prior to the occurrence of the following:

(a) Change of ownership, name, management, or location of a licensed pain management clinic; the license is non-transferrable so the license immediately becomes void and inactive upon a change in ownership or location.

(b) Employment of a new physicians, physician assistant, or advanced practice registered nurse in a licensed pain management clinic. The notification must be on a form approved by the Board and must include appropriate supplemental documentation including a criminal background check. Although prior approval by the Board is not required, the employment of a person who does not qualify for employment at a pain clinic under the law and rules of the Board is grounds for disciplinary action against the clinic license. A clinic license holder may voluntarily submit notification with a request for prior Board approval to verify that a person does qualifies for employment under the laws and rules of the Board.
