Arizona Chiropractors invited to join class action lawsuit against UHC for failure to pay for medically necessary physiotherapy and decompression, and improper pricing of out-of-network payments
Arizona chiropractors and their patients are now invited to join the Spinedex PT class action lawsuit against UHC for failure to pay for medically necessary physiotherapy of all types including decompression. The lawsuit also alleges improper pricing of out-of-network claims. ACS will be joining as a plaintiff. Those injured by UHC should consider joining the class to seek redress. Contact ACS for more information.
To quote ACS President Dr. Immerman, "if you are a chiropractor in Arizona and you have not been injured by UHC, you must not have a pulse."
You can contact ACS by email at or 602-368-9496. If you are interested, we will email you a summary document describing the lawsuit and what is involved with being a class member, along with the biographies of the attornies representing us. To see a copy of the original lawsuit which will be amended with the new class members, go to
May we respectfully add with no intent to disparage that ACS is the only association in Arizona with the courage and ability to actually litigate against insurance companies which inflict harm onto the profession. While others engage in endless meetings, ACS takes real action, spends real money and litigates. It is no wonder that ACS is now the largest association in Arizona.
