Military Care Program
In support of our military, the Palmer Chiropractic Clinics offer complimentary care for active-duty status military personnel and their families without chiropractic benefits*, including those in the active-duty status with the National Guard or Reserves. Veterans classified as 20% or more disabled by the Veteran's Administration and their legal dependents also are eligible. The complimentary care includes examinations, treatment visits, X-rays and rehabilitative services. In 2014 , Palmer Chiropractic Clinics provided 13,532 complimentary care visits to members of the U.S. military through our clinics in Davenport, Iowa, San Jose, Calif., and Port Orange, Fla.
*Chiropractic benefits must not already be available through personal, employer-provided, or state or federal entitlement health insurance to be able to receive complimentary chiropractic services at the Palmer Chiropractic Clinics.
Clinic Abroad Program (CAP)
Palmer's Clinic Abroad Program is an international service effort that leaves a lasting impact around the world. Palmer faculty and students travel to a domestic or international location to help populations with little or no access to health care by providing free chiropractic care to a wide variety of populations. Current CAP sites include Bequia, India, Bolivia, Madagascar, Morocco, Fiji and Vietnam.
