The Connecticut Chiropractic Association has entered into a Stipulated Judgment and Release with the Office of the Attorney General of Connecticut.

Under the terms of the Judgment, the CCA is prohibited from:

1. Fixing the prices or encouraging others to fix prices for any chiropractic good or services;

2. Organizing, participating in, or enforcing any agreement (a) to negotiate on behalf of any chiropractor or group of chiropractors regarding any term, condition, or requirement of dealing with any payer or provider; or (b) to deal or refuse to deal with, boycott or threaten to boycott, any payer or provider;

3. Advising, recommending, advocating, or attempting to persuade in any way any chiropractor to accept or not accept any aspect, term or condition of any existing or proposed participation agreement; 

4. Soliciting or communicating any chiropractor’s views, decisions or intentions concerning his or her willingness or intent to enter into any participation agreement;

5. Organizing, sponsoring, facilitating or participating in any meeting or discussion that the CCA expects or reasonably should expect will facilitate communications concerning any chiropractor’s intentions with respect to entering into any participation agreement; 

6. Encouraging or assisting any person to take any action that, if taken by the CCA would violate this order;

7. Continuing any meeting at which one or more chiropractors has made any statement concerning his or her intentions or decisions with respect to entering into any existing or proposed participation agreement. If one chiropractor expresses his or her intentions or decisions regarding whether to enter into a participation agreement, the CCA is required to eject such person forthwith from the meeting or discussion. If two or more chiropractors express such intentions or decision the CCA is to terminate the meeting forthwith.

In addition, the CCA is required, under the terms of the Judgment, to maintain records, including, but not limited to, retaining copies of all materials distributed at CCA meetings and seminars sponsored by the CCA. The CCA must maintain other records as specified in the Judgment, along with a record of its distribution.
