ChiroHealthUSA hits the half-million dollar mark in contributions to the chiropractic profession.
Jackson, MS – January 15, 2015 – ChiroHealthUSA has donated a total of $501,346 to various chiropractic associations, including over 20 individual state associations, through its Partnering Program since its inception. These funds help organizations deliver continuing education, positive image campaigns, and several other initiatives, all aimed at advancing the chiropractic profession.
The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress and the Congress of Chiropractic State Associations are two of the main beneficiaries of ChiroHealthUSA’s donations through 2014, receiving over $50,000 each.
“Giving back to the profession is not only a privilege, but a responsibility,” Dr. Ray Foxworth, President of ChiroHealthUSA said. “As a company, one of our goals is to see Chiropractic become the first resort for patients with health issues rather that the last resort as it has so often been in the past."
Part of ChiroHealthUSA’s corporate philosophy has been helping chiropractic state associations and chiropractic foundations by giving back a portion of its revenue to these organizations. “Our donations back to the profession are not considered an expense to us. They are considered an obligation to support those who do so much for chiropractic,” Dr. Foxworth added.
During 2014, a total of $198,241 was donated to over 25 recipients, and ChiroHealthUSA expects to increase this sum in 2015 with the addition of new state associations to its Partnering Program and increased card sales.
ChiroHealthUSA is a network that works in conjuction with a Discount Medical Plan Organization (DMPO) with a network of over 2,500 doctors who are concerned about patients having access to affordable healthcare. ChiroHealthUSA allows providers to offer legal network based discounts to patients who have no insurance or limited benefits. Chiropractic’s patient base is more financially responsible for their care today than they have been since the 1960s. Doctors often bend over backwards to help patients with the cost of care by offering discounts. Unfortunately their good intentions end up putting them at risk of violating the layers of regulations we face in practice today surrounding dual fee schedules, inducements and anti-kickback violations.
By joining ChiroHealthUSA, doctors get peace of mind about their financial and discounting policies and have a more affordable way for patients to continue treatment in their offices. Chiropractic is benefited on a national and local level, as a portion of every card that is sold is donated to the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, The Congress of Chiropractic State Associations and participating state associations.
