Any chiropractor licensed to practice chiropractic in this state who intends to become inactive in the practice of chiropractic shall notify the board in writing at the time of renewal that the chiropractor will not maintain an office or practice chiropractic in Indiana. The board shall then classify the chiropractor's license as inactive. The renewal fee for an inactive license is one-half (1/2) of the license renewal fee ($50.00), and the chiropractor shall not be required to attend license renewal seminars.

If a chiropractor holding an inactive license intends to maintain an office or practice chiropractic, the chiropractor shall notify the board of that intent. The board may reinstate that chiropractor's license upon notification and receipt of the following documentation:

  • A renewal application;
  • Payment of the current renewal fee ($100.00);
  • Payment of the current reinstatement fee ($15.00); and
  • Evidence of attendance of one (1) educational conference approved by the board for each year or portion of a year of inactive license classification.

If a practitioner wishes to reactivate their license please contact the Chiropractic Group at (317) 234-2054 or by email at or by FAX at (317) 233-4236. You can also make the request in writing to:

Any chiropractor licensed to practice chiropractic in this state who intends to retire from practice shall notify the board in writing of the chiropractor's intention to retire and shall surrender the license to the board.

If any chiropractor surrenders the license to practice chiropractic in this state, the chiropractor's reinstatement may be considered by the board on the chiropractor's written request. If any disciplinary proceedings under this chapter are pending against a chiropractor, the chiropractor may not surrender the license without the written approval of the board.
