Bill Summary

The bill requires certain health care providers to disclose to patients if the provider has been convicted of a sex offense or has been subject to final disciplinary action resulting in probation or a limitation on practice when the discipline is based in whole or in part on the provider's sexual misconduct. The bill specifies the form, manner, and content of the disclosures and requires the provider to obtain the patient's signed agreement to treatment and acknowledgment of receipt of the disclosure before rendering services to the patient. Failure to comply with the requirements of the bill constitutes unprofessional conduct or grounds for discipline under the practice act that regulates the provider's profession.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
