Support Chiropractic and help put an end to discriminatory chiropractic coverage for Medicare patients!
I received a new copy of ACA News Magazine today. ACA News is a publication of the American Chiropractic Association. The ACA has been instrumental in furthering the Chiropractic profession and ending discrimination towards the chiropractors for many years. Chiropractic is a safe, effective, affordable and natural form of healthcare with proven results. The ACA has recently launched its National Medicare Equality Campaign. It is the chiropractic profession's most important legislative effort since national health care reform. Currently Medicare restricts Medicare coverage to only spinal adjustments. They do not cover exams, extremity adjustments or therapies. Doctors of Chiropractic are highly trained primary care providers. If the ACA's National Medicare Equality Campaign succeeds, Doctors of Chiropractic will no longer be restricted to a single service by Medicare. Chiropractors would be granted the exact same status and authority that MDs and DOs currently have in Medicare. Accordingly, Doctors of Chiropractic would be allowed to furnish any existing Medicare-covered service that falls within our state scope of practice, including the continued ability to correct subluxations.
With 11,000 seniors daily becoming eligible for Medicare, most of them permanently lose their coverage for many of the wide variety of chiropractic services available under their previous health care plans. Please help us change this by signing the National Medicare Equality Petition by clicking here or on the box below. With your help we can convince the U.S. Congress to end discrimination against the chiropractic profession and the patients we serve. Thank you!
