Frequently Asked Questions

Question: What is approved for injection in Acupuncture Injection Therapy? OR Can I inject <Substance name>?

Answer: The Florida Board of Acupuncture has not published an Approved or Exclusionary Formulary for Acupoint Injection Therapy that identifies permitted/excluded injectable drug products prescribed and administered under 64B1-4.012.  Permissions described in the Rule identify, injection of herbs, homeopathics, and other nutritional supplements in the form of sterile substances, as permitted.  

Only the Board of Acupuncture can provide clarification of the Acupoint Injection Therapy rule and make other determinations about prescribing and administering qualified injectable products in the practice of Acupuncture.  Should a licensee need the Rule clarified, consider seeking legal advice and/or submitting a Request for Declaratory Statement to the Board of Acupuncture pursuant to Rule 28-105.002, Florida Administrative Code.

Question: What are the current rules about COVID and masks?

Answer: FSOMA’s “policy” is to advice members to follow the law.  If you need legal advice,  contact an attorney to develop an office policy based on your specific circumstance and needs. COVID mandates can be found mostly in rules and government orders.
