Monday, 25 September 2017

A bipartisan coalition of 37 state attorneys general have gone on record, urging health insurance companies  to review and revise coverage policies to encourage health care providers to prioritize non-drug treatment options before opioids for chronic, non-cancer pain. A September 18 letter  to Marilyn Tavenner, president and CEO of America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), encouraged the health care industry to promote the use of non-drug therapies, including chiropractic care, physical therapy, acupuncture and massage, and reduce financial incentives that contribute to the opioid epidemic.

Online CE Hours Update
Wednesday, 09 November 2016
If you have been keeping up with the FCA Bulletins and web posts, you are aware that the FCA is and has been supportive of online chiropractic CE hours. FCA General Counsel Paul Lambert has testified to that effect before the Florida Board of Chiropractic Medicine (BOCM) on two occasions.  The FCA is also keenly aware the words “contact classroom hours” are in the chiropractic CE statute and recent legal counsels to the BOCM prior to the current counsel have advised them that a statutory change would be necessary in order for the BOCM to adopt a rule providing for online CEs. This fact has been mentioned by Mr. Lambert, former BOCM members and even a former BOCM Counsel – in public testimony.
