The Case for Direct Patient Access to Medicare Cover for Chiropractic Care

None Are so Blind as Those Who choose Not To See.

May informed readers come see that many “good people” who claim our trust within Medicine, the media, government and, relevant parts of its bureaucracy, are dangerously untrustworthy.

Chiropractor, Dr. Michael McKibbinLord Acton wrote, “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”, conveying the opinion that, as a person’s power increases, their moral sense diminishes.

In a US District Court case, Wilk vs AMA exposed global organised medicine as the obvious enemy of chiropractic. A US court convicted various US medical associations of conspiring to contain and eliminate the chiropractic profession in the USA and elsewhere. (Elsewhere includes Australia.)

As I see it, our politicians have for decades not only turned a blind eye to that tragic conspiracy, they have cooperated in that conspiracy by containing and are now responsible for AHPRA eliminating Australia’s philosophy-subluxation-based chiropractic.

The case for direct patient access to Medicare cover for chiropractic care.

According to Australia’s 1977 Webb Report, a majority of chiropractic patients failed to gain satisfactory results from medical treatment. Late, they consulted a chiropractor and had a satisfactory outcome for those same symptoms.

Appallingly, the government and media both omit to publicly recognise 1) that over decades chiropractors have seen many, many medical failures with subsequent chiropractic successes 2) that philosophy-subluxation-based chiropractic should be adequately funded under Medicare.

The Webb Report’s findings tested whose interests politicians are loyal to 1) the genuine need of patients. 2) Organised medicine’s financial needs. There were two choices:

  1. Recognising that the favourable outcome enjoyed by millions of chiropractic patients justifies integrating adequate direct access to Medicare-funded chiropractic care for subluxation-related disorders within both private and public health. Ban the drug/surgery medical management of the symptoms of subluxation-related disorders.
  2. Accept the medical profession ignoring the subluxation while profiting from treating the subluxation-related symptom/s.

The government’s dark side dominated! Since 1977, millions of public patients continue receiving Medicare reimbursement for medical practitioners ignoring the subluxation while profiting from treating the subluxation-related symptoms.

Politicians share a duty to know that Wilk vs AMA exposed organised medicine as the obvious global enemy of chiropractic, yet the government gave the court-proven enemy of chiropractic legal control over the distribution of five Medicare visits to chiropractors.

By shifting registration control from neutral state registration Boards to control under medically aligned AHPRA politicians have given the court-proven enemy of chiropractic the power to eliminate philosophy-subluxation-based chiropractic.

Politicians limit patients who have a chronic medical condition that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer to a ridiculously low, five Medicare visits.

Patient safety has to be a precedence within health care.i Politicians ignore John Archer guesstimated deaths arising for medical treatment as distinct from the patient’s disorder are about 50,000 paii and the usual zero rate of deaths due to chiropractic care.

For decades, Australia’s politicians have assisted in the containment of chiropractic and of late, in the elimination of Australia’s philosophy-subluxation-based chiropractic.

And, Australia’s media’s deception by omission allows the adult population to remain totally unaware of this evil that is rampant within health care in Australia.

And all the while the sleeping populous permit the tyrants to exercise their evil.
