Chiropractic medicine and naturopathic medicine are evolving, as is the overall health care delivery system in our nation. Sometimes changes to our professions are driven by consumer demand; other times changes are driven by regulations affecting our practice. Nevertheless, as professionals we must keep up with our changing landscape.
At National University’s 2012 Homecoming, you’ll have a chance to keep abreast of some of these key issues in three of our many scheduled sessions:
Medicare as it Relates to Chiropractic Practice: Thursday, 6/21, 12:30 – 5:00 pm
Insurance Coding: Friday, 6/22, 12:30 – 5:00 pm
Susan McClelland has worked with the American Chiropractic Assoication as an advisor in the areas of coding, clinical documentation and Medicare for the past 27 years. She lectures nationally on these topics, serves as an advisor to The Chiropractic Summit, several state associations and chiropractic colleges, and as a private consultant to doctors of chiropractic across the country. She’ll give you the details you need to stay in compliance and navigate today’s Medicare regulations and insurance codes that are pertinent to chiropractic practice.

Integrating Medicine and Expanding Scope of Practice: Saturday, 6/23, 8:00 – 9:30 am
Robert Jones, DC, and Yeonjoo Lee, DC, along with Dr. Aaron Kaufman, opened their first integrative clinic in 2001 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Dr. Jones earned advanced practice certification in procedures such as injections, IV therapies and a specific formulary. Dr. Lee is a member of the American Association of Orthopedic Medicine and is trained to perform prolotherapy/PRP injections. Dr. Lee’s current interest in recent years has been in diagnostic and needle guidance ultrasound imaging through musculoskeletal ultrasound. This session will present historical, legislative and present day information regarding integrative medicine and expanding the scope of practice in the chiropractic profession.
