WE MUST WAGE ALL OUT LEGISLATIVE WAR AGAINST ASHN
We must wage all-out war against ASHN. Ever since ASHN came to Arizona in January, 2011, Arizona chiropractic practices have been decimated. ASHN has literally eliminated insurance coverage for chiropractic. With BCBS and CIGNA, the maximum payable is $44 and the copay is $40 so ASHN pays only $4. The paperwork required to get paid the $4 is so onerous that most doctors don't bother to complete it and accept the copay as payment in full. This cannot be allowed to stand.
ACS believes that ASHN and BCBS and CIGNA conduct are in violation of our insurance equality law. That is why we filed a lawsuit trying to force the Department of Insurance (ADOI) to enforce the law. Unfortunately, the courts ruled that ADOI does not have to enforce the law even if there are violations. We never got to examine whether or not there were violations.
In January at the Legislature we intend to move our insurance equality law outside of the jurisdiction of ADOI so that anyone can take legal action if there is a violation. One key difference this year: you must get involved. You must personally meet with your senator and two representatives to explain how bad things are and how hopeless it is to depend on ADOI for solutions. Start now by researching to determine who you are represented by. If you will do this then our chances of success will dramatically increase.
We have a full set of documentation to share with legislators. Go to the home page of ACS at www.AZChiropractors.org and look under Breaking News. Scroll down to 11/19/13. Click on packages one and two. Print out the materials and become familiar with them. Then give a copy to your legislators at the time of your meeting.
Another key difference this year is our lobbyist. Debra Brimhall Pearson is working harder than any lobbyist we have had for the past five years. This will also make a huge difference. Ms. Pearson is also highly effective since she served as a state representative from 1997 to 2003 and a number of the people she served with are still in office today along with the staff she worked with at that time.
Do you want $44 visits with $40 copays for the rest of your career? Then do something about it. Meet with your legislators and express your disgust. Explain that it is not really insurance at all when the insurer only pays $4 out of a $44 visit. It is insurance fraud and consumer fraud. Bring along EOBs show the $4 payment per visit. We have found that legislators are shocked to see this in print. Get to work and support our lobbying effort and together we will achieve victory.
BACK TO TOP
STATUS OF PENDING LAWSUITS
Here is the status of a potential lawsuit against BCBS and ASHN. Much of this intelligence is based on a lawsuit filed by the ACA against ASHN and CIGNA which was dismissed on summary judgment.
We have alleged that ASHN requires precertification in plans that clearly state precertification is not required. Upon investigation, we have found that ASHN makes exceptions and does not always require precertification so we have no basis for a lawsuit on that count. Regarding impermissible limits on chiropractic care, we have come to believe based on research that ASHN has a solid basis in chiropractic literature to support its position and so this would not be a winning lawsuit. The third theory is illegal illusory benefits resulting from excessive copayment requirements, i.e., the total payable is $44 and the copayment is $40 and so the benefit virtually does not exist. BCBS advertises that it covers chiropractic but only pays $4 out of a $44 visit and so this is an illusory benefit. This count is still being investigated and may result in a lawsuit. The fourth theory is illegal reliance on flawed and inaccurate medical necessity policies but again, ASHN has a solid basis in medical literature to support its position. The fifth theory is illegal discrimination against chiropractic physicians in violation of state anti-discrimination laws. The problem with this theory is that only the Dept. of Insurance can enforce the state anti-discrimination laws. Our attorneys are working hard to find a basis for a lawsuit but ASHN has built a solid wall of defense. We will keep you abreast of developments.
The Sec. 2706 lawsuit against United HealthCare is under development as some plaintiffs have contacted our attorney. We still need more plaintiffs willing to participate. If you have UHC patients who would be willing to be plaintiffs, have them contact ACS immediately. There may be financial compensation for participation. This lawsuit will allege that UHC pays chiropractors less than they pay other providers for delivering the same services. We have documentation showing that UHC pays nurse practitioners more than they pay DCs for the same services. Now all that we need are more plaintiffs.
PERSONAL INJURY CASE KILLERS
By: Steven H. Pincus, Esq.
Let's start from the beginning. It is a fact that nearly 70% of all auto collisions are rear-end hits. It is also a fact that most rear-end hits don't produce much property damage. Good thing then that it's also a proven fact that property damage does not correlate to occupant injury. Given these facts, there is no "smoking gun" at the scene of most injury causing auto collisions. In fact, the government mandates that rear-end hits cause minimal property damage, so that turn signals, brake lights, etc., are all functioning when the car leaves the scene. These factual occurrences are used by auto insurance companies not to pay, by claiming "no visible crash", "we ain't paying no cash!" Although this argument is completely false, juries that don't know any better are often fooled by such arguments. What is also factually known, is that most symptoms don't manifest for 12 to 72 hours after the collision. So, it is expected that at the accident scene, when the Police Officer asks your patient, "Are you injured? Should I call an ambulance?", that their answer is "no." This will result in the Police Officer placing a "1" in their injury box on the Police Report, denoting "no injury". This is what you are naturally up against in a typical auto collision case. You have a vehicle with little, to no, visible property damage; a Police Report stating your patient said he was not injured at the scene; and symptoms that won't manifest for 12-72 hours. We can expect this much, as it perfectly matches what medical and scientific studies conclude time, and time again.
It is from this vantage point that case killers begin, as follows:
1. Delay in hands-on care. The longer your patient takes to get your "hands-on" care, the harder it becomes to show the collision caused their injuries. Not taking the ambulance to the hospital, not being seen at a hospital, seeing your MD and then simply taking pain pills and anti-inflammatories, all amount to no "hands-on" treatment. The sooner "hands-on" treatment begins, not only the better off your patient will be, but the stronger their PI case will be as well.
2. Gaps in care. Once "hands-on" treatment has started, gaps in care are the next case killer. If your patient is scheduled to see you 3x per week to start, but only sees you three times in two weeks - gaps in care are occurring. If your patient is injured severely enough to warrant compensation, their injuries should warrant their seeing you as scheduled. Gaps in care give the impression your patient is not injured as severely as claimed.
3. Failure to Refer. This is where you come in! Cutting edge medical and scientific literature tells us that if your patient is symptomatic 4-6 weeks post accident - IT IS SUSPECT YOU ARE DEALING WITH A NEUROLIGAL BASED INJURY. (So when IME doctors claim your patient should have been better in 4-6 weeks, they're right - if you are dealing with simple strain/sprain injuries. But neurological injuries require months of treatment, and may lead to permanency.) So, failure to refer to a Neurologist, or at the least to get the appropriate diagnostic testing done (needle EMG, NCV, MRI, DMX), is a case killer. It's simple to make the appropriate referral, as you're already trained to do this. And, all of these diagnostic studies are available under liens - so be sure to ask us.
4. Change In Treatment Plan. This is where you come in again! It is highly likely the diagnostic study comes back with a positive finding - because your patient's injury is real. And, when it does IT IS IMPERATIVE that your Treatment Plan changes. You should be focusing on the now known injured body part, and therefore changing-up your Treatment Plan. Otherwise, what did it matter that you got a positive diagnostic finding?
Believe it, or not, these few simple things will make all the difference in making your patients' accident cases that much stronger. The insurance companies and their attorneys want to exploit things that naturally occur, that to the uneducated seem to suggest lack of injury - all to weaken your patients' cases. These "case killers" can be avoided, by educating your patients, and following proper medical protocol by referring out when your patient remains symptomatic 4-6 weeks post collision. The more aware your patients are that you handle accident injuries - the more likely your patients are to see you right away - and to avoid the delay in care. Reminding your patients how vitally important it is not to miss schedule appointments, and why, will also help. And, doing your part - and referring out for diagnostic testing when symptoms persist 4-6 weeks post collision - will help assure that these case killers are avoided.
If you'd like to learn more about avoiding case killers in your practice, and/or if you'd like a free system that advises your patients that you do treat accident injuries (we'll supply it to you for free!), then please give us a call now. In the Phoenix area, please call Shawn Dow, Esq. at 480-777-2599, and in the Tucson area please call Michelle Lespron, Esq. at 520-888-2599.

NEW FINANCIAL OPPORTUNITY FOR CHIROPRACTORS - BECOME YOUR OWN BANK!
My name is Dr. Jeff Woolston, and I am excited for the opportunity to offer my services to my fellow ACS members. I have been a Chiropractor in Scottsdale for 15 years. 4 years ago I discovered how to become your own bank and have recently been licensed to help others do the same.
I work for Ray Poteet of Alpha & Omega Financial Services. We are the "go to" firm for chiropractors, dentists, and doctors. We educate individuals, families and small business owners on how money works. We perceive ourselves first and foremost as educators, helping our clients to break the bonds of financial slavery.
We emulate the banks (Wells Fargo, B of A). They are the #1 purchasers of these policies. We get our dollar to do the job of $3 initially. Example: Year one, for every dollar we put in we get to borrow $.50-60, the balance grows as if the money never left the account, and it has a death benefit. Year 3 you get to take a loan that is equal to the amount of money you put in. Basically, you put in a dollar, you can take out a dollar. In year 10, $2 for every $1; year 15, about $3 for every $1.
We help set up plans to get people out of debt, as well as help them understand how to maximize their income. I have been able to lend money to my office and pay myself back with interest. We want families to keep money in their families by teaching everyone to become their own bank and pass on a legacy from generation to generation.
Monthly seminars are at my office where we educate and share the concepts of Infinite Banking. Dr. Brent Kesler, from Kansas, will lead our December 6th seminar at noon. Dr Kesler was able to pay off $986,700 in debt in 39 months using the Infinite Banking system. Our address is Woolston Wellness Center,P.C. 9832 N Hayden Rd #207 Scottsdale 480-556-6797.
