Federal Regulation and Accountability for Private Health Insurance

ICA’s Board of Directors has voted unanimously to adopt the repeal of the anti-trust provisions of the McCarran Ferguson Act as a top legislative goal and priority for the association. The McCarran Ferguson Act exempts the business of insurance from federal anti-trust laws and legislation passed the US House of Representatives in a previous Congress and was defeated in the US Senate by one vote.  “The time has come to once again make this vitally important public policy correction a top priority,” said ICA Legislative Committee Chair Dr. Michael S. McLean. “With no effective federal oversight and enforcement, private insurances will only continue their widespread policies of abuse and discrimination policies that strike especially hard at chiropractors and chiropractic patients.”
