The Chiropractic Board of Australia (the Board) has announced the national registration fee for chiropractors for 2016/17.
The fee has been set at $566, limiting the increase to indexation. It will apply from 1 September 2016 and cover the registration period for most practitioners of 1 December 2016 to 30 November 2017.
The fee for practitioners whose principal place of practice is NSW is $417.1
A fee schedule, including the fee arrangements for practitioners whose principal place of practice is NSW, will be published on the Board’s website.
The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme) is funded by practitioners’ registration fees. The decision to limit the increase to indexation ensures practitioners are not unduly burdened, but still provides sufficient income to allow the Board to meet its obligations in protecting the public.
Board Chair, Dr Wayne Minter AM, said, ‘We look forward to continuing the work to ensure the public are receiving care from safe, competent and ethical chiropractors’.
The Board will also shortly publish the Health Profession Agreement (HPA). The HPA provides information about the Board’s financial operations, outlines the partnership between the Board and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), and the services AHPRA will provide to the Board to regulate the profession.
