Medicare Covers Some Chiropractic Services

Chiropractors have come a long way in respect to how they are viewed with legitimacy by the medical world and this is obvious with insurance company acknowledgments. Medicare will cover some procedures of a chiropractic nature if you have the right kind of Medicare coverage. Most of this coverage is provided as a part of Medicare Part B coverage.

Medicare Part B covers manipulation of the spine if medically necessary to correct a subluxation (when one or more of the bones of your spine move out of position) when provided by a chiropractor or other qualified provider. This is a very common procedure that can help you return some feeling to your body and make it possible for you to return to life as normal.

In 2011, You pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount. When you have your procedure done the facility you go to should be able to inform you of what this amount is. You pay all costs for any additional services or tests ordered by a chiropractor as Medicare does not approve these services.
