Because NCMIC's malpractice insurance plan was created for chiropractors, our policy and benefits are designed with you in mind. This includes the chiropractic treatment of children.
Posted in Insurance on Wednesday, March 23, 2022
Some doctors have the mistaken belief that NCMIC does not cover the chiropractic treatment of children. The reality is that NCMIC does cover treatment of children. Our policy does not exclude this care; we recognize how important it is.
NCMIC and Pediatric Coverage
As a Doctor of Chiropractic insured by NCMIC, you can be confident in knowing that you can adjust anyone—from infant to centenarian (as long as it’s within your state’s scope of practice)—and your NCMIC coverage will be there to protect you.
NCMIC's specialty is insurance. Your specialty is the way you choose to practice.
If you'd like to learn more about the chiropractic treatment of children, the NCMIC Speakers Bureau has three speakers who specifically address a variety of topics in this important area:
Jenny Brocker, DC, DICCP
Dr. Brocker is a Board Certified Pediatric Chiropractor and is President of the ACA Pediatrics Council.
She believes a comprehensive approach to health care is in the best interest of the patient and it is her duty as a chiropractor to work with other health care professionals to provide patients with the best and most complete care possible. Dr. Brocker uses her experience as a mother and her knowledge as a chiropractor to help make pregnancy a time of joy and celebration, leading to a positive birth experience.
Elise G. Hewitt, DC, DICCP, FICC
An internationally recognized speaker, author and leader in the specialized field of chiropractic pediatrics, Dr. Hewitt helps chiropractors comfortably treat and interact with the youngest members of our society.
Dr. Hewitt is board certified in chiropractic pediatrics and a craniosacral therapist. She has published numerous papers and articles on chiropractic pediatrics and has served on steering committees for several large-scale studies on this topic.
Dr. Hewitt served as president of the American Chiropractic Association’s (ACA) Pediatrics Council for ten years. She is a founding member of both the ACA Pediatrics Council and the Pediatrics Council of the International Chiropractors Association. In her waiting-list pediatrics-only practice, Dr. Hewitt specializes in the care of infants.
Janet Lintala, DC
With 50,000 children being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) each year, there is now a virtual “silent tsunami” of individuals with specific medical and chiropractic needs.
Dr. Lintala gives clinicians the tools they need to take action and help their patients with ASD in ways that can show immediate results. Dr. Lintala is the founder of The Autism Recovery Resource Center, serving patients in 10 states, and does extensive pro bono work at the center. She is currently an adjunct faculty member at NUHS, a speaker for Intersect4Kids, and has mentored with Elizabeth Mumper, M.D., former medical director of the Autism Research Institute.
