Background of (HB-195)
Chiropractic physicians have over 4500 hours of doctoral education, which includes over 250 hours of nutritional education on average.
HB 195 will build on this nutritional education with an additional 100 hours covering micro-nutrient nutritional therapies. Chiropractic physicians have effectively and safely been providing IV and inject-able to nutrients for the last two decades, but in 2008 and 2012, through federal legislation and rule changes, the FDA established a new definition of an Rx, which defined any substance injected into the body as a prescription drug.
The Idaho Chiropractic statue currently states that chiropractors cannot use prescriptive or Rx substances. As a result of the FDA changes, chiropractic physicians lost the ability to provide IV and injectable nutrition to their patients. HB 195 has been well crafted with focus on standardization, accredited education, patient safety and renewal of access to patients seeking IV and injectable micro-nutrient therapy from their chiropractic physicians.
We applaud the legislators who support Idaho constituents by continuing to give them the right to choose their type of healthcare and their healthcare provider by saying yes to (HB195).
