Temporary Act 10 Credential
A health care provider credentialed in good standing in another state may apply for a temporary credential to provide services in Wisconsin while a Wisconsin application for a permanent credential is pending. See information sheet 2021-A101, Form 2021-A102: Health Care Employer Notification, and our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for further details.
Wis. Stat. § 440.08 (2), the required renewal date for the Chiropractic credential is 12/15/ each even-numbered year. Should you receive your initial credential in the months leading up to this date, you are still required to renew your license by the statutorily defined date.
The Board may grant a temporary permit to practice chiropractic to any chiropractor, who files an application prescribed by the Board, pays the required fee, has a chiropractic license in good standing in another jurisdiction, and has no disciplinary action pending in connection with any chiropractic license the applicant holds.
- A chiropractor practicing under a temporary permit is only allowed to practice as a chiropractor for participants in an athletic or artistic event, or as an instructor in a specific chiropractor education seminar approved for continuing education by the Board.
- A temporary permit is valid for 10 calendar days during the 12-month period immediately following its effective date, but no single period of practice under the temporary permit may exceed three (3) calendar days.
