I.         INTRODUCTION

 

The Connecticut Chiropractic Association, Inc. (the CCA”) is committed to conducting itself in accordance with the highest level of business and community ethics and in compliance with applicable governing laws.  In 2008, the CCA entered into a Stipulated Judgment and Release and the Agreement Containing  Order  to  Cease  and  Desist  with  the  Office  of  the  Attorney  General  of  the  State  of Connecticut (the OAG’s Stipulated Judgment and Release”) (APPENDIX A) and a Consent Agreement and Related Decision and Order with the Federal Trade Commission (the FTCs Consent Agreement) (APPENDIX B) to settle allegations that the CCA, acting in combination with the Connecticut Chiropractic Council (the CCC”) and the CCAs attorney, Robert L. Hirtle, violated the antitrust laws by, among other things, conspiring to fix or increase prices paid for chiropractic services and to boycott third-party payers.   Copies of these and related documents are available at the CCA’s website (http://www.ctchiro.com).   While the CCA has expressly denied the allegations made by the OAG and FTC, and has made no admission of liability or wrongdoing, the CCA is required to cease and desist from a variety of actions, and to document its compliance with the settlements and the antitrust laws.  It is the CCA’s intent to exert its best efforts to comply with the antitrust laws and the terms of the OAG’s Stipulated Judgment and Release and the FTCs Consent Agreement by implementing and enforcing its Antitrust Compliance Program, its Antitrust Compliance Policy and Code of Conduct (see Section II and APPENDIX C).  The CCA will not tolerate activities by its officers, directors, members, employees, representatives or agents that fail to comply with the letter and spirit of the settlement terms or the antitrust laws generally For further information on the specific requirements imposed by those settlements, please refer to the CCAs website.
