Providing Legal Defense of the Chiropractic Profession
TBCE & TCA v. TMA: TCA has filed a petition for review with the Supreme Court of Texas. The goal is to overturn a recent decision by the Third Court of Appeals, which ruled in favor of the Texas Medical Association (TMA) against the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE) and TCA. TMA successfully challenged TBCE rules regarding nerve, the subluxation complex and Vestibular-Ocular-Nystagmus Testing (VONT). TCA strongly believes the Third Court of Appeals erred in striking down TBCE's definitions of the "subluxation complex" and "musculoskeletal system" and that nerve is a vital component of chiropractic. TCA is waiting to find out if the Supreme Court of Texas will take the case. Fighting for your right to treat neurological conditions is just one way TCA is looking out for you and your patients.
Fend off frivolous lawsuits – When an Austin attorney accused chiropractors across the state of operating non-ADA-compliant websites in 2017, TCA stepped up and took legal action to force the attorney to cease and desist his unfounded claims.
TCA continues to work behind the scenes to protect your right to perform acupuncture and have fair access to the Designated Doctor program through the Texas Department of Insurance Division of Workers’ Compensation.
