Petition to White House and Members of Congress

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has launched a major grassroots
campaign to enact federal legislation that would achieve full physician status
for doctors of chiropractic in Medicare. This initiative would significantly
improve the health and wellness of our nation's aging population.

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 being unjustly denied full access to
Medicare covered services by doctors of chiropractic that could improve their
quality of life.


Because the federal government continues to rely on an antiquated statute that
discriminates against Medicare's chiropractic patients by not covering medically
necessary and mandated services delivered by DCs.

This needs to stop. 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.
