State judges won’t intervene in battle between chiropractors, insurance firms
PHOENIX — State judges won’t intercede in the fight by chiropractors with insurance companies.
The Court of Appeals has thrown out a request by two chiropractors and one of their patients to force state Insurance Director Germaine Marks to discipline Blue Cross for what they said are violations of anti-discrimination statutes.
In their unanimous ruling, the judges did not address whether the allegations are true.
Instead, they simply ruled that Marks has discretion in how she enforces the law. And that, they said, means no court can tell her what to do.
