Do you accept Medicare/Medicaid (Medicaid HMO Programs)?
Yes! We do accept Medicare and Medicaid/Medicaid-based programs. However, both Medicare and Medicaid only “cover” chiropractic manipulations or adjustments of the spine. While evaluations and physical therapy services are services covered by Medicare/Medicaid, they are NOT “covered” when billed by a chiropractor or chiropractic office. In addition to the previously mentioned services, chiropractic adjustments or manipulations of the extremities (i.e. ankle, shoulder, wrist, etc.) are non-covered services.
To determine if chiropractic may be a benefit to you or if your condition may improve with chiropractic care, an examination is required. Therefore, any Medicare/Medicaid member seeking care in our office is financially responsible for their initial visit (consultation and examination).
Should our Doctor of Chiropractic believe that your condition may improve with chiropractic care, she will offer you a treatment plan and/or recommendations for care. If our doctor recommends any of the following services, should you elect to receive them, you will be financially responsible:
- Electrical Stimulation
- Ultrasound Therapy
- Cervical Traction
- Lumbar Traction
- Chiropractic Massage
- Trigger Point Therapy
- Myofascial Release/Manual Therapy
- Paraffin Therapy
*This list is subject to change as new services are added*
Please keep in mind that other than examination procedures, any non-covered service is optional. Should you decide to receive such services, then you will be responsible for their payment at the time services are rendered. If you decide to not receive such services, the doctor will modify your treatment plan accordingly and obviously, no charges will be incurred. Any spinal adjustments or manipulations will be submitted to your insurance for payment.
