ACA Seeks Examples of Unfair Reimbursement Practices to Chiropractors in Effort to Enforce Section 2706

ACA Seeks Examples of Unfair Reimbursement Practices to Chiropractors in Effort to Enforce Section 2706

Have you been potentially reimbursed unfairly for a service by a group health plan or health insurer based on your license?


The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) is seeking examples of this practice to share with the Biden Administration as evidence that the provider nondiscrimination provision outlined in Section 2706(a) of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is not enforced.


This is a critical issue to all chiropractors and the entire non-MD community. ACA is working closely with the Patient Access to Responsible Care Alliance (PARCA), a group of non-MD associations, to get federal regulators to enforce Section 2706 and ensure fair patient access and provider reimbursement.


The ACA has posted a dedicated 2706(a) section on its website, where doctors of chiropractic (DCs) can share personal stories about how patients have had access limited or chiropractors may have been compensated unfairly by a group health plan or health insurer.


There is a form you can use to submit your experiences with provider discrimination directly to the ACA.


With the chiropractic profession’s help, the ACA wishes to highlight specific examples of payment discrimination against DCs to federal regulators, so please share your experiences with the ACA. They will continue to work with PARCA and other allies to secure fair patient coverage and provider reimbursement.
