Each active license may be renewed annually.
  • Inactive: A license issued to a person who meets all the requirements for a license to practice as an acupuncturist and who does not actively practice as an acupuncturist in this state.

The holder of an inactive license shall not be required to submit evidence of basic coverage or self-insurance. Each inactive license may be renewed annually.
  • Exempt: A license issued to a person who is not regularly engaged in the practice of acupuncture in Kansas and who does not hold oneself out to the public as being professionally engaged in such practice.

No licensee shall be required to pay a renewal fee, submit a renewal application, obtain continuing education or meet other conditions to maintain a license while such licensee is in the military service. No military license shall expire, lapse or be canceled, revoked or suspended because of the failure to timely renew such license, including the failure to meet any conditions prerequisite to renewal, during the period of military service. A licensee who desires to engage in or practice an occupation or profession in Kansas after their release from military service shall submit, within 6 months after such release, but not later than 2 weeks after engaging in or practicing such occupation or profession in Kansas after such release, the fee required by law for the current license period with a completed application. The license of a licensee who fails to complete the appropriate forms may be canceled, revoked or suspended in accordance with the applicable law. A licensee who is required by law to obtain continuing education as a condition prerequisite to renewal of a license shall be given a one-year period of time for fulfillment of such continuing education requirement, such period of time to commence on the date the licensee submits the fee and completed forms.
