The Peer Review Committee (PRC) provides an examination and report, based upon generally accepted standards, of the appropriateness, quality, utilization, and cost of chiropractic health care and health services provided to a patient. The findings of the PRC on each inquiry reviewed may include a determination of whether or not the chiropractor properly utilized services, rendered or ordered appropriate treatment or services, and whether or not the cost of the treatment was unconscionable. PRC inquiries are submitted by a patient, the patient’s representative, insurer, or chiropractor. PRC members serve the board for a three (3) year term and are paid $50/hr for their work on board-assigned peer reviews [KRS 312.015, KRS 312.200, 201 KAR 21:075, and 201 KAR 21:090].
More information about the PRC, requirements, and procedures can be found on the board’s website, http://kbce.ky.gov. You may click on the Peer Review tab on the home page or you can review all PRC statutes and regulations by clicking on Laws & Regulations Booklet under Quick Links.
