Florida Chiropractic Association Joins American Chiropractic Associationīs Medicare Lawsuit November 1, 2001 - 1:03 AM | Category: Chiropractic | Contact the author here.
The Florida Chiropractic Association (FCA) Board of Directors voted in early 2000 to involve itself in the American Chiropractic Association's ongoing Lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services concerning the new Medicare Part C regulations. These regulations are part of the government's new managed care plan that allows DOs and MDs to perform spinal manipulations in lieu of chiropractors.
ACA President James Mertz, DC, DACBR, welcomed the FCA's participation in the lawsuit: "Florida is a state where treatment of the Medicare population is a vital concern for the chiropractic profession. Both the FCA and ACA want to ensure that these Medicare beneficiaries receive the chiropractic care they are entitled to under the law."
