On January 19, 2011, ranking member of the House Veterans Affairs Committee and 51st District Representative (San Diego) Bob Filner introduced the “Chiropractic Care Available to All Veterans Act” H.R. 329.  The act amends the Department of Veterans Affairs Health Care Programs Enhancement Act of 2001 to require a program under which the Secretary of Veterans Affairs provides chiropractic care and services to veterans through Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers and clinics to be carried out at:

(1) no fewer than 75 medical centers by December 31, 2012; and
(2) all medical centers by December 31, 2014.   It includes chiropractic examinations and services within required VA medical, rehabilitative, and preventive health care services.
