Petition to White House and Members of Congress
Give Seniors the Medicare Coverage They Need and Deserve: Full Access to and Reimbursement for Services Provided by Doctors of Chiropractic
Studies have shown that essential services provided by doctors of chiropractic (DCs) can help aging Americans live healthier and happier lives, yet every day our nation's seniors are not receiving full access to Medicare
covered services by doctors of chiropractic that could improve their quality of life.
Why? Because the federal government continues to rely on an antiquated statute that does not allow Medicare’s chiropractic patients to obtain coverage for medically necessary and mandated services delivered by DCs.
This needs to change. Our aging population deserves the best health care this nation has to offer. And research has shown that safe and effective services provided by DCs are a part of the solution.
I urge you to pass legislation to correct this inequity in Medicare.

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has launched a major grassroots campaign to enact federal legislation that would allow doctors of chiropractic (DCs) to perform to the fullest scope of their license in Medicare. This initiative would significantly improve the health and wellness of our nation's aging population.
This campaign is dependent on members of the ACA and other supporters. You, too, can help support the ongoing efforts to ensure Medicare equality by donating to the National Chiropractic Legal and Legislative Action Fund (NCLAF). Every dollar you contribute will go to ensuring our seniors have full, unfettered access to the essential health care services provided by doctors of chiropractic.
