I want to start an Idaho chiropractic practice. Is there anything else I should know?

In addition to having your chiropractor license, you may want to form a business entity with the Idaho Secretary of State. Idaho does not require chiropractors to set up any particular type of business entity. Each type of entity offers different benefits and protections for Idaho chiropractors. In addition to standard corporations and limited liability companies, Idaho allows chiropractors to set up professional corporations (PC) as well as professional limited liability companies (PLLC). These entities allow licensed individuals to form a corporation or LLC for the purpose of practicing their profession. Shareholders must also be licensed chiropractors.

Idaho does not require businesses to indicate the type of business they perform in the business name.
