National Campaign Launched for Medicare Equality

January 27, 201614 min
The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has launched a national grassroots effort to eliminate a blatantly anti-competitive provision of Medicare law that arbitrarily limits reimbursement for medically necessary services delivered by doctors of chiropractic (DCs). The statutory change ACA seeks would define DCs as “physicians” under Section 1861 of the Social Security Act for the provisioning of any existing Medicare covered service that falls within the scope of practice of an individual DC as defined by their applicable state law.The centerpiece of ACA’s campaign will focus on generating a robust level of patient grassroots support aimed at Congress that seeks to ensure that Medicare beneficiaries have full access to a broader range of covered services provided by chiropractic physicians than current law permits.
