House Committee on Veterans' Affairs
Subcommittee on Health

Hearing on Chiropractic Services
in the Department of Veterans Affairs
October 3, 2000

Section 303 of the Veterans' Millennium Health Care Act (Public Law No: 106-117), which became law on November 30, 1999, orders the Veterans Administration to establish a policy for the Veterans Health Administration regarding the role of chiropractic treatment in the care of veterans. On October 3, 2000, a Congressional hearing was held to discuss the VHA's policy toward chiropractic care, which has traditionally been very negative.
