The Vermont Chiropractic Association is a professional organization representing Doctors of Chiropractic in the state of Vermont. Our mission is to preserve, protect, improve and promote the chiropractic profession and the services of Doctors of Chiropractic for the benefit of patients they serve. The purpose of the VCA is to provide leadership in health care and a positive vision for the chiropractic profession and its natural approach to health and wellness.
The VCA is hard at work for Vermonters. Current president Dr. Erik Hemmett (far left) is pictured below testifying at the statehouse regarding the role chiropractors play in helping with the opiate epidemic. In Vermont, insurance companies have classified chiropractic physicians under the category of “specialists”. Visits to specialists are subject to a significantly higher co-payment amount than visits to primary care providers. Removing chiropractic physicians from the specialist category and lowering the co-payment amount to that of a primary care visit will be a step in the right direction in reducing the existing financial disincentives that patients experience when seeking to use evidenced based chiropractic care for chronic back and neck pain.
Dr. Erik Hemmett and TJ Donovan (current Chittenden
County State's Attorney and Vermont State Attorney General Candidate) met to
discuss how the VCA can help "level the playing field for
everyday Vermonters", a slogan well known in the TJ Donovan for
Vermont Attorney General campaign. Vermont Chiropractic physicians play a
crucial role in offering safe and effective non-opiate options to treat acute
and chronic musculoskeletal pain. The VCA officially endorses TJ and
his commitment to help improve affordable access to non-opiate options
like chiropractic for the treatment of acute and chronic pain.
