WCA Fighting to Protect Chiropractic Benefits
WCA is fighting to protect chiropractic benefits for state and local government employees.
The Group Insurance Board, (GIB), an 11 member board under the Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF), has been tasked with exploring the cost/benefit of converting state and local government employees from the current fully insurance health care model to self insurance in an effort to save money. Bids are due this month at GIB from health insurers and third part administrators interested in managing a self insurance health plan for state and local government employees.
This move is being questioned by the Wisconsin Chiropractic Association in a letter from WCA Executive Director John Murray. “We are very concerned that the move to self insurance will reduce or outright eliminate access to chiropractic care,” said Murray.
“We are seeking to clarify the intent of the GIB and protect equal access to chiropractic care."
