Working Group Updates & Info

Please be advised that the PCA X-ray Working Group was successful (as previously mentioned in emails and videos) in petitioning the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) in 2022 to lower the annual DEP fees chiropractic offices pay per x-ray tube. This endeavor was started in 2015 by myself, Dr Vic Rizzo chairperson of the X-ray working group, in my position as the chiropractic representative to the PA Radiation and Protection Advisory Committee (RPAC).

The video above explains that the recent June1, 2023 letter you received from DEP refers to an upcoming fee increase to the prior category that chiropractors are leaving. It fails to mention that chiropractors will actually see a fee decrease from $400 to $195 per year per x-ray tube beginning of October 1. This was done by moving chiropractors into the dentist, podiatrist and veterinarian category due to our limited use of x-ray versus continuing in the same category as outpatient x-ray imaging centers like hospitals where chiropractors have been since the beginning of this fee. For those who were billed before October 1, 2023 you must pay the current $400 fee. For those billed after October 1, 2023 you will see the new fees.

Had the PCA NOT been able to get chiropractors moved into this new category, and then instead you would have seen a $130 increase in chiropractic office’s annual fees, or $530 per tube. Therefore, through the hard work of the PCA, ALL Pennsylvania Chiropractors will receive a $335 savings per year to chiropractors who take x-rays. Your PCA dues do make a difference. That means that if you have an X-ray machine, the PCA is really only costing you $265 a year, since the PCA saved you a $335 a year! PCA Dues pay for themselves!
