Post

The Managed Care & Insurance Committee (MCIC) has participated in discussions related to communication to CalChiro members of the Covoid-19 virus and its effect on the health care delivery system, and public and personal safety. The MCIC has also offered information and language related to any Telehealth discussions to ensure doctors of chiropractic are included as a category of provider in any legislative/regulatory enactment, or Executive Order.

The MCIC is in the process of reviewing draft trailer bill language for two health related proposals in the Governor’s budget – the Office of Health Care Affordability, and Health Care Payments Data System. Briefly, the language includes provisions outlined in the Affordable Care Language (for example, Medical Loss Ratio).

The Health California for All Commission has cancelled its April 2020 meeting and at this time there is no anticipated date to reschedule. The next meeting is currently scheduled for June 2020. CalChiro representatives will continue to monitor the Commission’s activities and participate as appropriate.
