Welcome!

The Chiropractic Medicare Coverage Modernization Act of 2019 (HR 3654) would allow Medicare beneficiaries access to the chiropractic profession’s broad-based, non-drug approach to pain management, which includes manual manipulation of the spine and extremities, evaluation and management services, diagnostic imaging and utilization of other non-drug approaches that have become an important strategy in national efforts to stem the epidemic of prescription opioid overuse and abuse.

HR 3654:

  • Appropriately defines a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) as a "physician" in the Medicare program.
  • Provides patient access to all Medicare-covered benefits allowable under a chiropractor's state licensure.
  • Requires that DCs complete a documentation webinar.
  • Is bipartisan legislation, introduced by Reps. Brian Higgins (D-N.Y.) and Tom Reed (R-N.Y.).

Now is the time to make your voices heard. The ASCA is asking that you act by using one of these three options: email your congressperson and ask them to support HR 3654, ask your patients to contact their congressperson, or meet with your congressperson while they are in their districts. Get Started HERE.
