If you are 65 or older, then you may be using Medicare insurance to help cover most of your health-related expenses. If you’re having back or neck issues, you may be considering a visit to the chiropractor in Vero Beach, FL; however, you may also be worried about whether or not your Medicare will cover the costs of visiting a chiropractor. The following is a rundown of what you’ll be responsible for paying depending on what kind of Medicare coverage you have.

Will Your Medicare Cover Chiropractic Care?

There are four different parts to Medicare: A, B, C, and D. If you have Medicare Part B, then there’s a good chance that you’ll be eligible to seek out chiropractic treatment from a licensed chiropractor. However, there are a few things you’ll need to know about going to a chiropractor if you have Medicare Part B. These include the following:

  1. It must be deemed medically necessary to visit a chiropractor by your general health practitioner. In order to be medically necessary, you must be required to get a remedy for a subluxation, which is the misalignment of your spine’s vertebrae.
  2. The chiropractor must be willing to accept payments from Medicare.
  3. You will need to pay 20 percent of the cost approved by Medicare.
  4. You will have to pay the deductible amount for Medicare Part B.
  5. You will have to pay for any additional tests or other services required by the chiropractor, including massage therapy, acupuncture, physical exams, and more.
  6. Medicare will only pay for X-rays if they are ordered by your doctor to diagnose subluxation. They will not pay for X-rays ordered your chiropractor.
  7. Medicare limits how often you can visit a chiropractor to once a day.

If you have Medicare and need chiropractic care, be sure to contact us at Florida Spine to schedule an appointment in Vero Beach, FL, today.
