Supercedes: None. Clarification of 233CMR 4.05

The Massachusetts Board of Registration of Chiropractors (Board) has today voted to implement the following Policy Guideline. This Guideline is intended as a recommended protocol for the profession to follow. This Guideline is not a Board rule or regulation and therefore does not carry with it the force or effect of law.

A licensed chiropractor should maintain a patient's treatment records for a minimum of seven years from the date of the last patient encounter, or until the patient reaches the age of nine (if longer than seven years).
