The article discusses the importance of validating the role of the chiropractic assistant (CA). It mentions that the need to have trained CAs arose from the interests of third-party payers who were being billed for services performed by office employees that did not have documented training. A Certified Chiropractic Clinical Assistant (CCCA) process was implemented for CAs which promotes credibility within chiropractic profession and provides a tangible process for third-party payer criteria.
