The EmpowerChiro Chiropractic Network


Family Health America, L.C. (FHA) has been in operation since 1996 and is one of the nation’s largest, most respected Chiropractic managed care companies. FHA’s chiropractic network, called EmpowerChiro, includes approximately 8,000 chiropractors providing care for more than five million members across the Nation. The EmpowerChiro network is accessed by insurance companies, provider networks, and employers.

EmpowerChiro’s protocols were founded on the concepts and beliefs of one of its creators, Dr. Nelson Seidman, a licensed chiropractor in New York State who created Aetna Health Plan’s HMO/capitation program. Dr. Seidman believed that while chiropractic care is important in treating neuromuscular skeletal disorders like headaches, neck and backaches, chiropractic care should not be used for treating the full range of medical conditions. He viewed chiropractic care as a supplement to traditional MD-based health care, not a substitute for such care. Fortunately, this approach provides high quality care at a reasonable cost.

EmpowerChiro works with each client to develop the best total solution to meet their specific needs. EmpowerChiro is committed to providing the client with the best chiropractic solution producing quality chiropractic care at a reasonable cost.

Network Access

EmpowerChiro offers insurers, payers and employers the opportunity to access an extensive, well-credentialed chiropractic network under its network access program. The network can be expanded where necessary to meet your needs. 

Delegated Credentialing

Many insurers and payers delegate the network’s credentialing to EmpowerChiro. Under this arrangement, EmpowerChiro maintains network credentialing files, while the client performs credentialing audits. This decreases credentialing costs and reduces the administrative burden.
