MAC Board of Directors Passes Resolution Supporting the Chiropractor’s Right to Clinical Decision-Making Regarding Radiology

At the October 5, 2017, meeting of the Michigan Association of Chiropractors’ Board of Directors, the Board passed a Resolution Supporting the Chiropractor’s Right to Clinical Decision-Making Regarding Radiology. This resolution is a rejection of the recent publication from the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation as part of their Choose Wisely® campaign. The Resolution notes that the MAC “works to protect the right of individual chiropractors to choose the clinical procedures within the chiropractic standard of care and practice, that he or she believes best address the patient’s complaint and/or diagnosis.”

Specifically, with this Resolution, the MAC Board of Directors fundamentally rejects the statement in the Choosing Wisely® document that states: “Do not obtain spinal imaging for patients with acute low-back pain during the six (6) weeks after onset in the absence of red flags.”

The Resolution also rejects the practice of certain entities, such as insurance companies and insurance claims reviewers, using the Choose Wisely® document to deny the use of radiographic studies to patients and deny reimbursement for such studies to chiropractors.

District Information

Mac DistrictsThe division of MAC Districts is based on the population and number of DCs in each district with the geographic size of the districts given consideration. These districts allow for equal representation of the DCs of Michigan, with most DCs being within easy driving distance to district meetings.

Because of its large geographical size, District 8 DC members may elect to have sub-districts, to facilitate the accessibility of meetings.

It Pays to Attend District Meetings!

In addition to helpful camaraderie and practice information, you will receive a voucher for a reduction off MAC dues or MAC CE programs for each District meeting you attend. The vouchers can be combined or used individually. All you need to do is attend a meeting, sign in, and your voucher will be mailed to you. This is one way the MAC is giving back to our dedicated doctors!

Thank you for your ongoing support!
