SB 698 – Pelvic Exam Law

In an effort to get clarity on the new law (SB698) effective July 1, 2020 requiring a signed consent form before performing pelvic examinations (as newly defined), FCAAP engaged legal counsel to file a Petition for Declaratory Statement with the Board of Medicine and to provide a legal opinion and other useful documents. The BOM filed a Final Order on the Petition on October 9, 2020 making several interpretations that should help pediatricians, however, some of the questions in the Petition remain unanswered, and there have been no official changes to the law. FCAAP is committed to working to amend or change the bill for clarity during the next legislative session. The information provided from FCAAP’s counsel is subject to change; however, you may find it useful for your practice in the meantime. Please note that the information contained in these documents is provided for educational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice to individual physicians, which should be obtained from competent counsel of the physician’s choosing. Log in to the FCAAP member-only website and go to the FCAAP Documents tab to view these resources, including counsel’s opinion, best practices, FAQs, and a template consent form.
