  • Phishing Scam Alert

    10/29/2019

    The MN Board of Chiropractic Examiners has shared information with us regarding a Phishing Scam that has been occurring in their state.  We are not aware of any incidences occurring in ND but felt it important to pass along the information to all of you.  Below is the information from Minnesota:

    Be wary of phone calls demanding confidential information such as Social Security numbers or threatening legal or criminal action.  Scammers are able to mimic known phone numbers in your caller ID making it appear that the Board is calling.  The scammers claim they are from a Federal Law Enforcement Agency and they utilize public information such as license numbers and NPI numbers as means of identification. They have utilized fax, email, and phone calls – some have even set up conference calls in attempt to get the license holder to comply.  The callers have threatened that licenses will be taken away unless payment is made immediately.  This has occurred with a variety of medical providers – it is not chiropractic specific.

    The DEA provided a press release regarding these scams in March 2019.  Here is a link to that information: https://www.dea.gov/press-releases/2019/03/13/dea-warns-alarming-increase-scam-calls

    INFORMATION REGARDING THE ND BOARD OF CHIROPRACTIC EXAMINERS:

    1. The ND Board will NOT contact a license holder to discuss confidential information over the phone.  All correspondence will be completed in writing.
       
    2. Any requests for payment by the ND Board will be noticed in writing; such as the annual license renewal notices or a signed agreement completed with the Board.
       
    3. The Board does not have the ability to complete credit card transactions via the telephone.  We accept credit card payments directly on our website for specific transactions only - license applications and license renewals.  All other transactions must be paid by check/money order.
       
    4. License holders are encouraged to contact the Board directly if they receive a suspicious call and want confirmation of its legitimacy.

    If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the board office; however, we have shared the limited information we have received. Please note that we have no jurisdiction over the scammers and can only advise you contact your private attorney for legal advice if you have been a victim.

    Sincerely,
    ND Board of Chiropractic Examiners

  • CCCA Confusion & Reminder

    2/14/2018
    With all things new, there is always a period of transition and learning.  We are continuing to find uncertainty regarding the Certified Chiropractic Clinical Assistant certification that took effect on August 1, 2017. Your staff will achieve a CCCA status via the FCLB upon completion of their examination.  This is not certification in ND. Your staff members are not authorized to practice as a CCCA until they are issued their ND State Certification (or temporary certification) from the Board. The process to certify your staff includes 3-steps: Step #1: Education - either (a) 24-hours of approved online education; or (b) “grandfather clause” – 2000 hours of verified experience as a CA between August 1, 2014 – August 1, 2017.  This clause expires on March 1, 2018.  After that date, all applicants will be required to complete the 24-hours of education. Step #2: Examination - Successful completion of the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Board’s (FCLB) CCCA examination. Step #3: State Certification - Completion & Approval of the ND State Board of Chiropractic Examiners application for CCCA Certification (including a Criminal History Record Check). For steps #1 and #2 above, you will need to go to: www.fclb.org.  Select the Chiro Assistants tab.  For more information, select the Candidate Handbook link, under Program Information, in the left column of this page. Education – about halfway down the website page, in the left column, you will find links to the approved education programs. Examination– the link for Registration (for the examination) can be found at the top of the website page in the left column. For step #3 above, you will need to go to the board’s website: www.ndsbce.org.  Under the Chiropractic Assistant’s Menu – select Application.  Once the online application has been submitted, the board office will mail the applicant their criminal history record check materials.  Have those completed as soon as possible and returned to the board office.  As soon as those are received in the board office, we will issue a temporary certification, so the applicant may begin working as a CCCA until the regular certification is issued. If your staff submitted their ND application, but have not received their certification (or temporary certification), we have not received the completed background check materials.  Please have those completed and submitted ASAP or contact the board office for additional information. If your staff completed the examination and received their CCCA status via the FCLB but have not submitted their ND application with the Board, please have them do so immediately. They are not authorized to practice as a CCCA in ND until they have received their ND certification (or temporary certification). Last, the grandfather clause for individuals that have 2000-hours of chiropractic assistant experience expires on March 1, 2018.  After that date, ALL applicants will be required to complete the 24-hours of education. Please contact the board office with any questions or more information.
