10-22-2018-The New York State Board for Chiropractic held its quarterly meeting in Thursday, October 18th, 2018. The Board decided to stand by their original statement which they released in September 2018 that advising, selling or recommending CBD oil is not within the scope of Chiropractic practice. We included that statement in our September News Flash and have copied it below.

The New York State Workers’ Compensation Board issued proposed changes to the fee schedule in the early summer. The Council and NYSCA submitted comments along with a variety of other parties involved in August. The new fee schedule and proposed changes were originally supposed to take effect on October 1, 2018. After reviewing the comments, the Workers’ Compensation Board, on Oct 3, 2018 issued new proposed changes asking for new comments. Currently, we are speaking with NYSCA about our next set of comments for the revised proposed Workers' Compensation Board fee schedule.
Our revised comments will be submitted by the end of this month.
Here is the link to review updated proposed changes:
Dr. Joseph Baudille
Dr. Scott Schwager notified our Board on June 7th, 2018 that he needed to step down as our President as of August 1st, 2018. In accordance with our constitution and by-laws, it is the duty of the Regents Council to appoint an interim President. After considering all eligible candidates, the Regents Council is proud to announce that Dr. Joe Baudille has been appointed interim President to complete Dr. Schwager’s term. Since he is moving into the position of President, the Regents Council then needed to appoint a replacement to his Executive Officer position. They once again reviewed all eligible candidates and are extremely pleased to announce that Dr. Donna DeRosa will step into the Executive Officer position to complete Dr. Baudille’s term.
The Board of the Council would like to thank the Regents Council for their time and energy in following the protocols and procedures to make these appointments.
