U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D) of Connecticut has introduced legislation, S 422 that would amend the Department of Veterans Affairs Health Care Programs Enhancement Act of 2001 to require the provision of chiropractic care and services to veterans at all Department of Veterans Affairs medical facilities by the end of 2016.
This important legislation would:
- Extend veterans' access to in-facility chiropractic services by requiring the expansion of chiropractic personnel requirements to "not fewer than 75 medical centers by not later than December 31, 2014, and at all medical centers by not later than December 31, 2016."
- Expand Rehabilitative Services to include chiropractic services,
- Include periodic and preventative chiropractic examinations and services.
We need your action!
ICA urges all doctors of chiropractic, chiropractic patients and supporters in the United States to contact their Members of Congress and urge them to add their names to this important bill as co-sponsors.
