Medicare Equality

medicare equalityThis is something you can do to help improve access for our seniors who need it most.   Presently medicare only covers chiropractic manipulation, but does not include prerequisite examinations and diagnostics that may be required before providing chiropractic care.  In Illinois, chiropractic physicians are also trained and licenced to provide other services that include:  physical therapy, nutritional counseling and conservative treatments for patients at risk for diabetes, hypertension and heart disease.  If Medicare expanded its coverage of chiropractic services it would only improve the quality of care that we could provide our seniors and overall healthcare costs would be reduced.
