Public comment sought on proposed new fee for health providers

These proposed regulations seek to add a new fee for criminal background checks for all the health professions covered under Title 3 of the District of Columbia Official Code.   Title 3 was newly established pursuant to the Licensed Health Professional Criminal Background Check Amendment Act of 2006.

Two questioins:   1)   How does the proposed fee compare with the fees charged by MPD and the FBI for running the check? and 2) How does the proposed fee compare with the fees others (volunteers, child care providers, etc.) have to pay?

The deadline for comments is ~March 6, 2009.
