Confidential Monitoring Program

The State Medical Board of Ohio has filed proposed actions concerning rules with the Common Sense Initiative Office.  The proposals are available for your comment.


A state rule-making agency may propose to adopt a new rule, amend or rescind an existing rule, or propose to continue a rule without any changes.  Executive Order 2011-01K and Sections 107.62 and 121.82, Ohio Revised Code, require state agencies to draft rules in collaboration with stakeholders, assess and justify any adverse impact on the business community, and provide an opportunity for the affected public to provide input on the proposed rules. The Business Impact Analysis for the proposed rules discusses the purpose of the rule and identifies the nature of the adverse impact on licensees.  The Common Sense Initiative review most be completed before the rules can begin the formal rule-making process through the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review. 


At this time, public comment is being sought on the proposed actions for the following rules:


Confidential Monitoring Program for licensees with mental or physical illness other than a substance use disorder.

Rule 4731-28-02 sets forth the eligibility criteria for program participants.

Rule 4731-28-03 addresses the participation requirements for individuals in the confidential monitoring program.

Rule 4731-28-04 provides information regarding the disqualification from continued participation in the confidential monitoring program.

Rule 4731-28-05 addresses the termination of the participation agreement for the confidential monitoring program.


Comments on the proposed rules must be received no later than February 26, 2018.
