COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 has officially been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). While COVID-19 is causing much uncertainty in our world and our communities, the MCPA feels that this the time that Chiropractic Physicians in Missouri and across the world can be leaders at spreading information based on fact, not fear.

Now that President Trump and Governor Parson have asked every citizen to limit gatherings to less than 10 people, practice self-quarantine, and social distancing, there have many questions about what that actually entails. The MCPA has fielded many questions regarding "what do we do now"? The MCPA believes that it is important to provide as much reliable information as possible so that every Chiropractic Physician can make an educated decision of what is best for their patients, their practice, and their loved ones. 

We encourage everyone to continue to follow proper compliance procedures, while also adhering to the recommended safety protocols. These protocols are ever-changing and evolving, so please check the site links below for the latest requirements and recommendations.

UPDATE 10-14-2020:

$20 Billion in New Phase 3 Provider Relief Funding:  Eligible providers, including chiropractic physicians, that have already received federal Provider Relief Fund payments are invited to apply for additional funding that considers financial losses and changes in operating expenses caused by the coronavirus. Previously ineligible providers, such as those who began practicing in 2020, may also apply. Information on how to apply can be found here.



UPDATE 8-29-2020:

The MCPA was notified that the Greene County Health Department has been contacting Chiropractic Physicians with misinformation regarding their essential workers status in the latest Department of Homeland Security Essential Worker list released on August 18, 2020. Chiropractors are still specifically indicated as being Essential Workers in this latest list. If you are contacted by any Health Department indicating that you are no longer classified as an Essential Worker, please refer them to page 7 of the Version 4.0 CISA Guidance on Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers FINAL AUG 18v2_0 


Below is the section in question taken from this latest list. 

Workers, including laboratory personnel, that perform critical clinical, biomedical and other research, development, and testing needed for COVID-19 or other diseases.•Healthcare providers including, but not limited to, physicians (MD/DO/DPM); dentists; psychologists; mid-level practitioners; nurses; emergency medical services personnel, assistants and aids; infection control and quality assurance personnel; phlebotomists; pharmacists; physical, respiratory, speech and occupational therapists and assistants; social workers; optometrists; speech pathologists; chiropractors; diagnostic and therapeutic technicians; and radiology technologists.
