Medicare Initiatives Update and Support Letter Decision

July 31, 2019

Greetings ChiroCongess Members:

As a follow-up to our message last week regarding current Medicare initiatives, the ChiroCongress board has voted to sign the ACA letter in support of H.R. 3654 - Chiropractic Medicare Coverage Modernization Act of 2019. While ChiroCongress supports legislative efforts which we believe positively impact the profession, we encourage each association to independently assess support of legislative efforts with your association’s leadership team.

Should your association choose to support the effort, please reach out to Annette Bernat, ACA vice president of communications, at Please use the subject line: “2019 Medicare Bill”. Be sure to indicate the name and title of the person who should appear on the letter representing your organization (most list their president).

Recently, ChiroCongress was invited to appoint representative(s) to an ACA legislative committee, made up of various stakeholders from the profession, to continue the work on legislative initiatives. The ChiroCongress Board voted to support keeping communication lines open with stakeholder groups and will make a recommendation for Dr. Don Cross, Immediate Past President, and Kris Dowell, Treasurer, to co-represent ChiroCongress.


As mentioned in our prior update, the ChiroCongress Board will continue to monitor this legislation and assist when and however appropriate. The Board also plans to do the same for legislation championed by the ICA.


If you have any questions regarding these decisions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Lizz Klein via email at, or call 503-922-2933.


Dr. Dan Spencer, President
Congress of Chiropractic State Associations
