ILLINOIS LICENSE CHANGES FOR RENEWAL

The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation has recently adopted a NEW RULE in the Illinois Medical Practice Act (MPA) MANDATING that Illinois Physicians licensed under the Medical Practice Act MUST COMPLETE AT LEAST 1 HOUR OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT TRAINING per licensing period.  Training and certification must be taken by an Illinois APPROVED continuing education sponsor (IPSCA is listed as an approved sponsor in the MPA).  This mandate DOES INCLUDE this renewal licensing period for 2020.

IPSCA BOARD OF DIRECTORS APPROVE RADIOGRAPHIC EXAMINATION STANDARDS AND INDICATIONS

The use of X-ray or radiographic examination by a chiropractor is primarily for spinography.  Spinography is the chiropractic art of analyzing X-rays for the following purposes:

Position Statement

Radiography of a patient should only be performed on the basis of clinical need as judged by the attending Doctor of Chiropractic.  The following are standards for ordering radiographic studies.  These criteria are offered to assist in making this determination on a rational basis. . . .

IPSCA POSITION STATEMENT:  IPSCA OPPOSES HR 3654

The Board of the Illinois Prairie State Chiropractic Association (IPSCA) has taken a position opposing HR 3654 which is known as the Chiropractic Medicare Coverage Modernization Act of 2019. We feel this legislation, if approved in its current form, would be deleterious to the Chiropractic profession and the well being of not only the citizens of Illinois but our entire nation.

Current Medicare policy is too restrictive as it provides coverage for only the manual manipulation (adjustment) for the correction of a vertebral subluxation. The IPSCA would be receptive to any legislation which adds reimbursements for X-rays and exams to the existing language. We have also gone on record supporting legislation which would allow Chiropractors to “opt out” of Medicare which is currently denied (unlike other physicians).    Read More

WARNING: CBD OILS AND YOUR PRACTICE

Marketers are targeting Chiropractors and other groups to get in on the next “big wave”….CBD products. CBD IDS is available at farmer’s markets, beauty shops, gyms etc. but may not be suitable for your practice. The FDA has approved only 1 product for treatment for one particular condition and this is available only by prescription (something

 

most DC’s are not licensed to perform). They consider all forms of CBD (pills, teas, topicals, ingestibles …) to be a concern.  Those concerns include:  unscientific claims of results, purity and safety of the product. Prosecutions could be coming. The IDPR, the Chiropractic regulatory agency in IL, feels that products refined from industrial hemp are currently outside the scope of practice for DCs in our state. The IPSCA Legal Affairs Committee feels it is not advisable for IL DCs to sell CBD products for the treatment of human ailments at this time!

NEW LAW REGARDING CONCUSSIONS

 

A new law went into effect in Illinois which requires the County Health departments to have information on concussions for minors.  The Illinois Prairie State Chiropractic Association (IPSCA) stood ready to make sure informational packets were available for both the chiropractor and the health departments.  IPSCA members were also encourage to distribute the information not only to their local health departments but also schools, travel leagues, or wherever they feel concussions are a real problem.  These packets are helpful to any parent seeking answers for their child.
