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.

PIP Law Update: Fourth District Court of Appeals Rules Allstate Policy Is Ambiguous
Wednesday, 19 August 2015
In a lengthy and well written opinion, the Fourth District Court of appeal explained why Allstate’s “subject to” fee schedule language in its policy of insurance was insufficient to put providers and insureds on notice of how it would pay 200% of the Medicare Fee Schedule part B.  In following prior appellate court rulings, the Court reiterated the law that there are two payment methodologies in PIP – the fact finding methodology of determining a “reasonable” amount and the fee schedule amount.  The Court found that Allstate’s policy language did not contain the required “clear and unambiguous” language as to how it would reimburse PIP benefits.
