Medicare requires that you are to be notified in advance of services that are not covered by your Medicare insurance. With regards to Chiropractic care, only Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy (the adjustment) is a covered service. Medicare further does not cover examination fees nor re-examination fees. Your Medicare fees at Hygiea Health are as follows:
Hygiea Wellness examination: $200
Physio-therapy: $50 co-pay per treatment session
Nutritional products: Retail price
Our practice model is physio-therapy based and therefore each treatment session at our office requires a $50 copay for non-covered services. We do not provide Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy only.
You should be aware that there are many chiropractors who do not provide non-covered modalities and are contracted to Medicare to accept your Medicare insurance as payment in full.
Our office will only bill Medicare for covered services, namely Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy. Therefore you will not be able to appeal other charges with medicare.
Please be informed that in other offices you may elect to have non-covered services billed anyway, allowing you to appeal the charges with Medicare.
In other offices you may be able to elect to receive only Medicare covered services.
If you have questions on this notice or Medicare billing, call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227/TTY: 1-877-488-2048)
