Are Chiropractic Services Covered by Medicare? Here Are 5 Tips You Need to Know

Medicare covers chiropractic visits that are medically necessary and involves manual manipulation of the spine.

Patients typically pay a 20% coinsurance, while Medicare Part B covers the remaining balance.

Medicare only covers treatments that are medically necessary for diagnosing or treating spine-related conditions, specifically subluxation of the spine.

Original Medicare Parts A and B do not cover additional services like X-rays or massage provided by chiropractors.

Medicare Advantage plans may offer coverage for chiropractic services, but patients should check their specific plan for details on benefits and costs.
