New York Chiropractors meet with Attorney General

On April 28, 2005 the New York Chiropractic Legislative Task Force met with Attorney General Eliot Spitzer and the chief of the AG's Health Bureau, Mr. Joseph Baker regarding our issues with insurance inequality. Officers of both, the New York State Chiropractic Association and the New York Chiropractic Council as well as NYSCA attorney Ross Lanzafame, Esq. and NYSCA legislative counsel Don Mazzullo, Esq. and the NYCC legislative counsel, Andy Roffé, Esq. represented the Task Force. The meeting gave the Task Force the opportunity to discuss the non-compliance with the insurance equality law and the abuses put forth by the carriers and their IPA/Utilization Review agents. Mr. Spitzer and Mr. Baker understood our issues and recognize the areas where they might be of assistance in intervening with the Insurance Department. The Task Force will be in continuing communication with the Attorney General’s office with regard to these issues and there will be future meetings with the Health Care Bureau and the Attorney General’s aides to resolve these issues.
