PRACTICE ALERT: Impairment Modernization
Ohio’s biennium budget (House Bill 33) was passed by the Ohio General Assembly in June, with several impacts to licensees of the State Medical Board of Ohio taking effect October 3, 2023.

These changes allow for confidential help for practitioners with mental health concerns, physical illness, or substance abuse disorders. Read more about this specific impact of House Bill 33 on the State Medical Board of Ohio's website.
