  • Welcome, Kim!

    ChiroCongress welcomes our newest staff member, Programs Administrator Kim Zanke!

    As our new Programs Administrator, Kim will serve as a critical team player with ChiroCongress in supporting our mission “to advance the chiropractic profession through innovation, research, and service to member associations.”

    In her role, Kim will be providing member service and support as well as serving as project administrator for the Future of Chiropractic Strategic Plan.

    A Message from Kim

    Hello! My name is Kim Zanke, and I am the new Programs Administrator for ChiroCongress! In August 2021, I graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Healthcare Administration. While attending Baker College, I worked at local chiropractic clinic as an office manger. During my tenure there, I gained a working knowledge of the industry, quality of care, services and compassion extended to patients. That made me passionate to find a career within the chiropractic industry!

    In my spare time, I enjoy shopping, paddle boarding and walking my dog Cammie. She is a Boxer mix that I adopted from the Kent County Animal Shelter here in Grand Rapids, MI.

    I am excited to be a part of the ChiroCongress Team and look forward to working with you all!

  • Lunch & Learn on the No Surprises Act - Wednesday, January 26, 1 pm ET



    Please join us on Wednesday, January 26, 2022, at 1 pm ET for our next member roundtable. We will welcome District 2 Director Marc Abla as he leads a discussion on the No Surprises Act

    This discussion will better inform state association leaders regarding the new requirement so that we can all better equip our doctors to comply with the new mandates.

    Please register in advance for this meeting: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZwoc-ytqT4tGNSKBsySpq6erwp8xjk32VE8

    Background
    In an effort to ensure patients are better informed regarding the cost of their healthcare, Congress passed the No Surprises Actwithin the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021. Initially, most experts believed that theNo Surprises Actapplied only to facility-based (such as a hospital) providers; however, on the recent finalization of Part II of the rules, it became clearer that a specific portion applies to all health care providers.The Good Faith Estimate portion of that act directly impacts all providers, including chiropractors.

    Beginning on January 1, 2022, providers are required to inform certain patients that they are eligible to receive a Good Faith Estimate with an estimate for their specific anticipated care. As a part of the new requirement, providers will have to ask patients specific questions, provide a notice of the availability of a good faith estimate to self-pay patients, and provide a good faith estimate with required elements to those patients.

    We will discuss:
    • General applicability and why there was confusion,
    • Which patients are entitled to Good Faith Estimates,
    • Notification requirements,
    • What Good Faith Estimates are and when they must be provided,
    • Form requirements,
    • How the new requirements may work in concert with existing state laws, and
    • Attendee questions.
  • ATTENTION: Convention Attendees - Here’s Your Final Checklist! ✔️

  • IMPORTANT - ACTION REQUIRED: Announcement Regarding the ChiroCongress 2021 Convention

    Dear ChiroCongress Members,

    The last 17 months since COVID overtook our world have been unprecedented, and we could not have anticipated we would continue to weather its effects this far into 2021. We were very optimistic that the conference could still be held. Unfortunately, we are undeniably faced with the very real challenge of hosting an event in Hawaii. 

    After numerous meetings with the resort, it has become clear there is no way we would be able to hold an event there that would meet your expectations and give you the convention experience you deserve. We want to be open and transparent about what we have learned, and the realities we are facing.

    Please read the full announcement about our 2021 convention, and let us know what your intentions are by this Sunday, August 22: https://mailchi.mp/chirocongress.org/2021-convention-august-update
