The Texas Chiropractic Association (TCA) is aware of phenomena that have been termed “phantom insurance coverage.”  There have been reported instances where an insurance company advertises a plan that seems to offer certain coverage, but then imposes restrictions to such a degree that the advertised coverage is nonexistent. 

A classic example of such “phantom coverage” is “chiropractic coverage” that is, for example, limited to $500 per year after a $500 co-pay.  This means that the patient will pay the first $500 after which there are no more payable benefits for chiropractic.  In this example the “chiropractic coverage” is considered phantom coverage in that the patient actually has no coverage for chiropractic services.  These and other examples have been reported by practitioners.  The TCA needs documented examples of such phantom coverage.  Please contact TCA to share any examples of such phantom coverage that you encounter in your practice.

Raising Funds for Chiropractic

The Texas Chiropractic Association (TCA) is working to protect and enhance chiropractic practice in Texas.  It’s Chiropractic Development Initiative (CDI) is “on budget.”  In fact, the recently held Tour of Texas generated over $21,000 in donations from three locations to protect and promote the rights of the profession and their patients.  

The  chiropractic doctors of the TCA believe that the people of Texas should be afforded the full benefit of chiropractic care based on the Doctor of Chiropractic’s level of education, training and experience; that they should be afforded access to chiropractic care free of oppressive limitations or discriminatory payment provisions. They believe that chiropractic doctors in Texas should be afforded the level of authority, respect and esteem equal to the dramatic impact they make on the lives of their patients. 

To assist in achieving this objective, the TCA Political Action Committee (TCA PAC) is in need of funds as TCA prepares for the upcoming 2019 legislative session.  TCA PAC works to support worthy legislative candidates who support chiropractic practice and have an open mind towards the legislative agenda of the TCA.  This year the TCA is encouraging an increased level of grass roots support through local and regional legislative fundraisers and receptions.  Contact TCA if you desire to host or be part of a legislative fundraiser or reception.

Virginia Nurse Practitioners Seek More Autonomy
Written by Editor

Most Virginia nurse practitioners could gain the autonomy to practice without a physician’s oversight if the Virginia governor signs a bill the General Assembly passed with near-unanimous support.

The measure would allow most types of nurse practitioners with five years of full-time clinical experience to earn approval to practice without maintaining a contract with a physician who oversees them.
