Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Genetic Counselor Licensing Act. Provides that application for licenses shall be made to the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation in writing or electronically (rather than in writing) as prescribed by the Department. Provides that all applicants and licensees shall (1) provide a valid address and email address to the Department, which shall serve as the address of record and email address of record, respectively, at the time of application for licensure or renewal of a license; and (2) inform the Department of any change of address of record or email address of record within 14 days after the change either through the Department's website or by contacting the Department's licensure maintenance unit. Provides that no association, limited liability company, professional limited liability company, or partnership (rather than no association or partnership) shall practice genetic counseling unless every member, partner, and employee of the association, limited liability company, professional limited liability company, or partnership who practices genetic counseling or who renders genetic counseling services holds a valid license issued under the Act. Provides that every application for an original license under the Act shall include the applicant's Social Security Number or individual taxpayer identification number. Removes a provision that authorizes the Department to maintain rosters of the names and addresses of all licensees and all persons whose licenses have been suspended, revoked, or denied. Defines "email address of record". Changes references from the "American Board of Medical Genetics" to the "American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics". Makes conforming changes. Makes grammatical changes. Amends the Regulatory Sunset Act to provide for the repeal of the Genetic Counselor Licensing Act on January 1, 2030.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Adds language that provides that notice of a disciplinary hearing may be served by certified mail to the applicant's or licensee's address of record or by sending a copy by email to the applicant's or licensee's email address of record if the applicant or licensee designated an email address of record where the applicant or licensee may receive electronic service for administrative proceedings.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Provides that a license shall not be issued to a business, the stated purpose of which includes or which practices or which holds itself out as available to practice genetic counseling, unless it is organized under the Professional Service Corporation Act or the Professional Limited Liability Company Act. Prohibits, except as provided in a specified provision of the Code, a business organized under the Professional Service Corporation Act from practicing genetic counseling unless every owner, manager, and employee of the professional services corporation who renders genetic counseling services has received specialized training in genetic counseling and holds a valid license issued under this Act. Prohibits, except as provided in a specified provision of the Code, a business organized under the Professional Limited Liability Company Act from practicing genetic counseling unless every owner, manager, and employee of the professional services corporation who renders genetic counseling services has received specialized training in genetic counseling and holds a valid license issued under this Act.
