Weigh In on Important Legislation!

Weigh In on Important Legislation!

The Illinois Chiropractic Society has initiated HB 4477 in the Illinois General Assembly. The bill, sponsored by State Representative Kevin Schmidt (R-Millstadt), would prohibit discrimination by a health care plan or coverage against any health care provider who is acting within the scope of the provider’s license or certification, thereby disallowing an insurer from not covering services provided by certain health care providers (i.e. a chiropractic physician) or to reimburse at lesser rates than other health care providers. Rep. Schmidt is also a practicing chiropractic physician.

The bill has been posted for a hearing before the House Insurance Committee. You are urged to complete a witness slip declaring your support for this important legislation. Simply go to the Illinois General Assembly website and complete the information identifying yourself.

  • Under “position”, click on “proponent”.
  • Under “testimony”, click on “record of appearance only”.
  • Then click on the box to “agree to the terms” and click on “create slip”.

Your witness slip will become part of the record of the bill and will show your support for this important legislation.

A: Yes! You can share the link and information with your staff, friends, and patients.

Q: What is the deadline?

A: All slips should be added by the end of business on Monday, March 18, 2024.

Q: What should patients put in the “Firm/Business Or Agency” box?
