About the MIBAC Practitioner Training

The training programs from Spine Care Partners have been used in a variety of settings, in several different states (i.e. New York, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island), and have consistently had high levels of participant satisfaction and strong evidence of success in defined measures of appropriate care patterns (e.g. use of imaging, rate of surgical referrals, etc.). This program has been successfully implemented through Excellus Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Upstate New York).

Testimonials

“I thought the training was excellent. It strongly reinforced what we already know - that conservative management of low back pain leads to better results, lower cost, and helps patients learn how to self-manage this often chronic recurring problem.”

David Parker, MD

“I am thrilled to be involved in MIBAC because it helps to align the values of excellent patient care with provider decision and reimbursement. It’s an opportunity for providers to control their own destiny by advocating for their patient’s interests.”

James Leonard, DC
