Medicare used to cover Chiropractic care just like any other insurance. People are paying for Medicare in deductibles and monthly payments just like other insurance. About a year ago, Medicare cuts were made, but deductibles, monthly payments & copayments went up. Medicare is demanding that Chiropractors do a regular physical exam which is not only unnecessary, but it costs the patient $40.00 for which Medicare has refused to pay its 80%. Medicare needs to pay for Chiropractic care. Long term... Chiropractic care keeps other medical costs down.
