Chiropractic Attorneys Discuss Issues Facing the Profession

By Editorial Staff

The National Association of Chiropractic Attorneys (NACA) held its annual meeting in Savannah, Ga., in November 2022. NACA is comprised of attorneys who represent chiropractic associations, colleges, malpractice carriers, and groups. For the past 45 years, NACA has provided forum to address legal challenges and emerging legal and regulatory issues facing the chiropractic profession. This allows all chiropractic groups and associations to share in the collective experience of all other states.

Issues discussed and analyzed during the 2022 meeting included:

  • Chiropractic legislation, including model legislation for an equal-pay law for same-code reimbursements; animal chiropractic; dry needling; and lien laws
  • Chiropractic-related litigation relating to State Farm and GEICO
  • Chiropractic doctors bringing collection suits under the CARES and Family Trust acts for COVID-related billing
  • Wikipedia's treatment of the chiropractic profession
  • Updates on chiropractic scope of practice
  • The No Surprises Act of 2022
