Are Chiropractic Services Covered?
Medicare will pay for chiropractor’s manual manipulation of the spine to correct a subluxation. Additionally, manual devices used by chiropractors in performing manipulation of the spine are also covered.
Do I Qualify for Chiropractic Services?
Your chiropractic treatment is covered by Medicare if:
- You have a significant health problem in the form of a neuro-musculoskeletal condition that needs treatment (such as pain, inflammation, swelling, leg and foot numbness, etc.)
- You have a subluxation of the spine
- Manual manipulation has been recommended for improvement of your condition
