The California Chiropractic Association (CalChiro) is pleased to sponsor AB 888, which seeks to reduce the over-reliance on prescription opioids by integrating nonpharmacological treatments to pain management care plans and, most importantly, ensures that patients are making well informed decisions before an opioid is prescribed. AB 888 was introduced by Assemblymember and Chair of the Business and Professions Committee Evan Low.
The California Chiropractic Association (CalChiro) filed suit in San Francisco Superior Court, alleging among other complaints, One Call Medical, Inc. d/b/a One Call Care Management (OCM) and its subsidiary, Align Networks (Align) have violated California’s unfair competition law (UCL) as broadly defined in Business and Professions Code Section 17200 (Case No. CGC-18-569362).
Organizations such as the California Chiropractic Association (CalChiro) that are successful at influencing policy-makers frequently increase their effectiveness through the mobilization of local community support, commonly known as working at the grassroots.
The Key Doctor Program is a central component of the Governmental Affairs Department. This grassroots program is designed to educate the legislature about the profession and scope of doctors of chiropractic; establish and maintain positive relationships with legislators; and provide information to the Governmental Affairs Department and CalChiro District presidents regarding legislative concerns.
CalChiro staff, The Weideman Group, and our Governmental Affairs Committee worked diligently vetting legislative proposals for 2018. We started by determining our strategic objectives and built our package from that foundation.
In 2018, CalChiro is actively supporting legislation and building strong relationships at the State Capitol.
