Contact Your Congressman Today About Important Chiropractic Legislation
Wednesday, 23 September 2015

Friends, it is imperative that we all "answer the call" when you see these alert bulletins in your e-mail box.  Please take a look at the alert bulletin below and contact your representative in Washington and urge that they cosponsor this legislation.  All it takes is a few mouse clicks and your time and effort will be helping your profession and our patients.  If you have previously contacted your federal officials on these issues, please do so again.  If you haven't, please do so today.  Thank you! 

Earlier this year, three separate pieces of ACA-backed legislation were introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives that would expand patient access to the services provided by doctors of chiropractic in several federal health care delivery systems.   It is very important that doctors of chiropractic, chiropractic assistants, and chiropractic students immediately contact their elected officials in Washington and urge that they cosponsor each of these measures. Current cosponsors can be found here.

President signs "doc fix" bill, delay of ICD-10, into law
Tuesday, 08 April 2014

(From ACA "Week in Review" of 04/03/2014)  On April 1, President Obama signed into law H.R. 4302, the "Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014," which averted a 24 percent reduction in Medicare physician payments. The temporary "doc fix" to the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) allows for continuation of the 0.5 percent update, previously implemented on Jan. 1, 2014, through Dec. 31, 2014, and a zero percent update from Jan. 1, 2015 through March 31, 2015. Also included in the law is a provision that delays conversion from ICD-9 to ICD-10 diagnostic and procedure coding until at least Oct. 1, 2015. ACA is awaiting further clarification on how this delay will affect providers and insurance companies going forward.
