EXPLANATION OF MEDICARE COVERAGE

January 2022 

Dear Patient:

If you have Medicare Part B you are covered partially for chiropractic care.  All patients must meet the yearly deductible ($233.00) and then Medicare will pay a portion of the bill.  Remember that only APPROVED services go towards your deductible, i.e. therapy is not a covered service therefore that does not go towards the deductible.

Medicare only approves SPINAL manipulation.  In other words if you have a problem with an extremity (knee, elbow, shoulder, foot, hand, etc.) this is a non-covered service therefore YOU will be responsible for treatment.

Many patients have a secondary insurance to cover the expense that Medicare pays a portion of.  However most secondary insurances only cover what is APPROVED by Medicare.

Remember Medicare Part B only pays 80% of the allowed amount!

If you do not have a secondary insurance then YOU are responsible for the deductible and the CO-Insurance, meaning the $233.00.  Once the deductible is met then you are responsible for the 20%.

Many patients have therapy, i.e. ultrasound and electric stimulation.  This is a NON-COVERED service for Medicare therefore the patient is responsible for the $15.00 per date of service.

X-rays, initial exams, re-exams, supplies, orthotics are NON-COVERED services therefore these are billed directly to you, the patient.
