ACA Responds to New United Healthcare Policy Classifying Chiropractic as “Non-essential”
(Reprinted from the ACA “Week In Review” of 10/28/2010) You may recently have heard about United Healthcare (UHC) and another flawed policy proffered by this carrier. Like you, we at ACA are not at all happy about it. This unfortunate policy, which offers definitions of “essential, mixed, and non-essential benefits” --chiropractic is listed as non-essential--is just another attempt to jockey around impending non-discrimination mandates. We are developing an appropriate response along with our Chiropractic Summit partners so our message is unified and our actions are focused and effective. We will share the response with you once it is available.
