Chiropractors Defaulted on Student Loans “In Droves”

The  chiropractic industry counted a win after it successfully lobbied for  inclusion in a federal student loan program for those studying  health-related professions. Decades later, though, significant numbers  of chiropractors have defaulted on their loans, leaving Uncle Sam to  make up the difference.

Fifty-three percent of  healthcare providers barred from receiving Medicare and Medicaid  reimbursements from patients because they defaulted on Health Education  Assistance Loans (HEAL) are chiropractors, according to an analysis of  the Department of Health and Human Services’ exclusion list.

The data shows people well into middle age–even in their 60s–saddled with debt, sometimes as much as $500,000, from the four years of graduate chiropractic school.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Don’t become a chiropractor unless you like STUDENT LOAN DEBT you can’t repay — and lots and lots of it. You have been warned.

    point? I amazed with the analysis you made to make this
    actual publish incredible. Wonderful task!

  2. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know
    so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    get folk’s attention? I mean Chiropractors Defaulted on Student Loans In Droves |
    American Student Loan DEBT Crisis is kinda vanilla.

    You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how theyy create post titles to get people to open the links.
    You might add a video or a related picture or two to
    get readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.
