Special Action Alert Bulletin!
Help Reinforce the MAC’s Message at NCLC!

Contact Senators Levin, Stabenow and your U.S. Rep. Today!

Last week, a large contingent of doctors from the MAC, including key members of leadership, attended the ACA’s annual National Chiropractic Leadership Conference (NCLC), the profession’s premier grassroots political event and a unique opportunity to gather and help set the direction for the future of chiropractic in America.

The group met with such luminaries as Rep. John Dingell (D-Dearborn) and Rep. Tim Walberg (R-Tipton), and staff for every member of the Michigan Congressional delegation, informing them about the issues that matter most to the profession. 

In order to maximize our advocacy efforts at the NCLC, we are asking you to participate in an online grassroots campaign reinforcing our message. Contact your federally elected legislators and make them and their staffs better aware of chiropractic’s key legislative issues. We laid the groundwork by discussing these issues with them last Thursday during the NCLC 2014 Lobby Day, and now we need your help on:

  • Urging members of the U.S. House and Senate to treat doctors of chiropractic in the same manner as other physicians, including MDs, under any new Medicare payment structure
  • Requesting members of the U.S. House to cosponsor HR 921, the Chiropractic Care to All Veterans Act
  • Calling for members of the U.S. House to cosponsor HR 702, the Access to Frontline Health Care Act

Go to the ACA’s Chiropractic Legislative Action Center ( to send emails to your federal legislators on these important topics. Your rapid response is urgently needed and will help strengthen and amplify the pro-chiropractic message targeted to Capitol Hill in support of specific legislative initiatives currently pending before Congress.

A little effort from you TODAY can make a huge difference! Thank you for your participation in this important effort!

Attention: PPACA Requirement Affects Most Chiropractic Offices

Written Notice to Employees Required by October 1!

Most likely, you are affected by a section of the Affordable Care Act that requires a notice to employees of coverage options available through the Health Insurance Marketplace. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has announced that employers must distribute a written notice about the existence of the Marketplace to all existing employees and all new hires by October 1, 2013. For newly hired employees, the employer will have 14 days from the employee’s start date to provide this notice. For more information, see the article “National Health Reform – Notice of Exchanges” on page 10 of the July/August edition of the MAC Journal. which can be accessed online at

Sample Notice for employers who DO provide insurance coverage:
