Q&A: Subjects of Reports

  1. Can eligible entities report on health care practitioners who are not physicians or dentists?

    Yes. The definition of a health care practitioner is an individual who is licensed or otherwise authorized by a State to provide health care services, or any individual who, without authority, holds himself or herself out to be so licensed or authorized.
