IMPORTANT

SCAM ALERT!

Medical providers in Kansas and in other states have been contacted by people who claim to be from a regulatory board, then ask for personal information. It is important that medical providers and their office staff do not provide personal information about themselves or others without verifying who is receiving the information.

If there is ever any suspicion as to whom is calling, KSBHA employees' identities and contact information are available on our Agency Contacts page. To ensure your safety and security, if you are suspicious, you have the option to call us back at the number listed on the website.

The Board is comprised of 15 members including 5 Medical Doctors (M.D.), 3 Osteopathic Doctors (D.O.), 3 Chiropractic Doctors (D.C.), 1 Podiatric Doctor (D.P.M.), and 3 public members.
