FCA Webinar Series: Medicare Enrollment and Revalidation
Medicare/CMS Forms & Resources
Wednesday, 10 April 2013
Navigating the Medicare enrollment and revalidation process is among the top concerns voiced by FCA members who call FCA for assistance. Delays are commonplace and have extended to over a year in some instances.  To assist members in reducing the delays, confusion and frustration, the FCA presents their third webinar available for members. It includes the more common and some less well known obstacles to getting the application completed correctly.  One of the advantages of the webinar is the ability to pause it along the way to take notes or even go back:  Highly recommended for anyone responsible for getting this job done.  The FCA thanks Mollie Frawley, R.N., FCA Insurance Liaison and presenter in this webinar, for this outstanding webinar and for her constant and excellent service to members each and every day.  And we acknowledge with appreciation the assistance of Dr. Sig Miller and ChiroView Presents for his role as moderator and with production.

Here We Go Again on Medicaid
Medicare/CMS News
Tuesday, 05 February 2013
The Governor released his proposed budget late last week and, once again, as it has been for virtually every year since FCA successfully lobbied to include chiropractic in Florida Medicaid, the bureaucracy and Governor are recommending it be eliminated (along with podiatry, another “optional service” per the federal law).  The Governor’s staff gave a courtesy call to the FCA (and the Florida Podiatric Association) late last week to report the position.   If you have been attuned to FCA legislative reporting over the last 20 years, you know that we have been successful each time, thus far, in having it reinstated in the legislative budgetary process.  We do not take this lightly, however.  What this means is that the FCA will need to fight this issue once again in the 2013 legislative session.   We cherish your continued support.
