Welcome to the ISCA
Updated Stay at home order is in effect until April 20, 2020 as of April 6th, 2020. This could change in the future and we will continue to keep you updated.
The ISCA continues to monitor all of the directives surrounding the COVID-19 crisis. Please check back often and if you sign up as a member you will receive emails as soon as the information is available to us. We are available to answer any questions for our members.
The Governor issued a Stay-at-Home order for all Hoosiers until April 7. This means all non-essential businesses have to close as of March 24, 2020. At this time, the Executive Order allows for essential businesses including health care facilities to remain open. Chiropractic offices fall into this category and are considered an "essential business" and will be allowed to remain open. However, it is a strong recommendation from the ISCA that you make every effort to limit your staff and the number of people in your offices if you choose to remain open.
Here is the pertinent text from the Executive Order regarding Healthcare and Public Health Operations.
- The phrase "Healthcare and Public Health Operations" includes, but is not limited to, the following: hospitals, clinics, dental offices, pharmacies, public health entities, including those that compile, model, analyze and communicate public health information, pharmaceutical, pharmacy, medical device and equipment, and biotechnology companies including operations, research ad development, manufacture, and supply chain, organizations collecting blood, platelets, plasma, and other necessary materials, obstetricians and gynecologists, eye care centers, including those that sell glasses and contact lenses, home healthcare services providers, mental health and substance use providers, other healthcare facilities and suppliers and providers of any related and/or ancillary healthcare services, entities that transport and dispose of medical materials and remains, and veterinary care and all healthcare services provider to animals.
- Fitness and exercise gyms, spas, salons, barber shops, tattoo parlors, and similar facilities are not included in Healthcare and Public Health Operations.
- Further, the phrase "Healthcare and Public Health Operations" shall be construed broadly in order to avoid any impacts to the delivery of healthcare broadly defined.
While taking the necessary precautions to protect staff and visitors, the ISCA office remains open. We are working remotely for the time being and will continue to assist our members with any questions they may have. Please be patient for answers as our call volume and email activity have increased.
Introduction of the ISCA's New Executive Director
Jessaca Turner Stults
I’m happy to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the Indiana State Chiropractic Association members as the new Executive Director. I’ve had the opportunity to take part in many legislative issues that have positively impacted the care you provide to your patients. It is that work that makes me excited to help preserve, protect and promote your profession now and into the future in the state of Indiana.
I am Jessaca Turner Stults, and I serve as the managing partner of The Capitol Group (formerly TSS Capitol Group) which I founded in 2010. I began my legal career as a deputy prosecutor in Marion County then moved into governmental affairs. In 2006, I worked as the Legislative Director for the Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA), the State’s largest agency. In 2007, I became General Counsel of FSSA, while maintaining my role as Legislative Director for the agency. I advocated before the Indiana General Assembly protecting and monitoring FSSA’s interests and was instrumental in the passage of the Governor’s Healthy Indiana Plan.
The Capitol Group has been working with the ISCA for a number of years and we have a team of dedicated individuals that wake up each day prepared to advocate for our clients, their mission and goals. We are both excited and humbled to have the opportunity to manage your association and advocate for you, especially during a time when healthcare is under the microscope. We have the education, resources, dedication and relationships to educate the Indiana legislative body, Executive Branch, and other stakeholders on the importance of protecting chiropractic care.
I’m pleased to be trusted by your leadership and executive committee and know the future is bright with our partnership. We have exciting things in store for the ISCA and our goal is to become a stronger and more useful organization to enhance your membership interests and legislative presence as the Indiana State Chiropractic Association. We are Stronger Together.
Let’s preserve, protect and promote the chiropractic profession, together.
