Two members of the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), Leo Bronston, DC, MAppSC, and Kris Anderson, DC, MS, were reappointed to represent ACA as advisors to the American Medical Association’s (AMA) Health Care Professional Advisory Committee (HCPAC).
Bronston, of Onalaska, Wis., who currently serves as ACA vice president, will serve as ACA’s primary HCPAC advisor and Anderson, of Grand Forks, N.D., will serve as the alternate advisor for the next three years. Both provide leadership and expert guidance on ACA’s Coding Advisory Board and Payer Collaborative Task Force.
Members of HCPAC are chosen from organizations representing limited-license practitioners and other allied health professionals. The committee, along with AMA’s CPT Advisory Committee, serves as a resource for the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) Editorial Panel, providing advice on procedure coding and appropriate nomenclature as relevant to their specialties.
“These appointments give ACA and chiropractic an important seat at the table in coding matters that affect the entire profession,” said ACA President Michele Maiers, DC, MPH, PhD. “Drs. Bronston and Anderson continue to be excellent representatives for ACA and the profession in the national health care community.”
