Freedom for Texas Chiropractors

What's at Stake Your ability to see your chiropractor. Through its lawsuit against the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE) and the Texas Chiropractic Association (TCA), the Texas Medical Association (TMA) is attempting to position its members as the gatekeepers who control access to health care, effectively driving Doctors of Chiropractic (their competition) out of business. If the TMA is successful, Texas consumers who prefer to see DCs will be at a disadvantage – and certainly Texans who prefer to use chiropractors as their primary doctor will be forced to seek care elsewhere.  We believe that: Chiropractic is affordable and effective and it is the preferred method of health care for millions of Texans. Let’s ensure it remains a viable health care option for Texans. Doctors of Chiropractic are extremely well-trained health care professionals, well-equipped to diagnose and treat patients. The Texas Legislature can, and should, protect your right to choose your own doctor and your own type of care, and lower health care costs in the process. If you want to maintain access to chiropractic care, please contact your representatives in the Texas Legislature. Ask them to support legislation designed to ensure your right to select the doctor of your choice. What Can You Do About It? Contact your state representative and state senator today by joining the TCA MentorMyLegislator group. Your right to continue to see your chiropractor depends on it! Also, make a contribution to the Texas Chiropractic Association's Chiropractic Development Initiative (CDI): http://www.chirotexas.org/cdi. CDI donations fund TCA's lobbying, legal and public relations initiatives on behalf of the chiropractic profession in Texas.
