Patients often wonder whether or not Medicare chiropractic coverage exists. The simple answer is yes; however, nuance does exist for what particular services Medicare covers.
- Medicare covers spinal manipulation for symptoms attributed to the spine such as low back, neck and/or back pain
- Non-covered services under Medicare include therapeutic exercises, x-rays, maintenance care, and initial/progress evaluations
- Medicare has no limit for the number of visits per year as long as the services are medically necessary
- Often, patients will have a secondary insurance or Medicare replacement plans that may cover additional services but commonly will only cover services allowed by Medicare
Medicare chiropractic coverage can certainly be confusing so hopefully our blog post has helped you to better understand the topic. If you have any further follow-up questions feel free to contact the office.
We always recommend making an appointment for any new onset spinal or extremity pain as well as for re-aggravations of previous symptoms to properly diagnose the underlying cause and to determine the most appropriate treatment.
