Conn. Makes Chiropractors’ Malpractice Records Public

May 18, 2007

The Connecticut House of Representatives unanimously approved legislation which would — for the first time in Connecticut — make chiropractor malpractice records public information. This follows the unanimous approval by the state Senate on April 11th. The bill —SB-249— now goes to the desk of Governor M. Jodi Rell for her signature.

The bill would require insurance companies to inform the state insurance commissioner whenever there has been a settled malpractice claim so that the information can be published for the public to make informed decisions about picking a chiropractor, just as been the case for years regarding medical doctors.

“We are delighted that legislators agree the people of our state have a right to make informed decisions about their health care,” said Janet Levy, president of Victims of Chiropractic Abuse.
