Amends the Orthotics, Prosthetics, and Pedorthics Practice Act. Makes changes in Sections concerning the powers and duties of the Department, the Board, qualifications for licensure, the renewal or restoration of a license, the grounds for discipline, and the appointment of a hearing officer. In a Section concerning exceptions, provides that the Act shall not be construed to prohibit a licensed advanced practice nurse from engaging in his or her profession (now, physical therapist or occupational therapist). In a Section concerning the limitations on the provision of care and services, provides that a licensed orthotist, prosthetist, or pedorthist may provide care or services if the care or services are provided pursuant to an order from an advanced practice nurse (now, a licensed physician or podiatrist). Creates new Sections concerning returned checks and fines, subpoenas, unlicensed practice and civil penalties. Defines the terms "address of record", "off-the-shelf device", and "Secretary". Repeals Sections concerning the transition period and enforcement. Repeals a Section concerning elective inactive status and reinserts its contents into a Section concerning the renewal or restoration of a license. Makes other changes. Effective immediately.
