National Chiropractic Health Month

National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) is a national public awareness and education campaign held each October. NCHM strives to teach health care consumers about the benefits of chiropractic services and to promote the expertise of doctors of chiropractic (DCs) in helping their patients reach optimal levels of health and wellness.

In 2014, NCHM will use the theme “Conservative Care First!” to educate the public on why a conservative approach to pain management and health enhancement is both sensible and effective. For years, many patients would find relief through conservative forms of care such as chiropractic services only after unsuccessfully trying a range of other, more complex and riskier treatments. Today, that approach has been reversed, with more medical research and guidelines supporting the idea that patients should exhaust conservative approaches to pain management before moving on to other options.

Novitas, Medicare, and Chiropractic 2014
Monday, July 28, 2014 10:23 AM

As of July 24 Novitas is operating under its new local coverage determination for chiropractic services.  The local determination does not replace, modify or supersede existing Medicare national determinations, payment polices, rules or regulations for chiropractic services.  "Neither Medicare policy rules nor this LCD replace, modify or supersede applicable state statues regarding medical practice or other health practice professions acts, definitions and/or scopes of practice."

"All providers who report services for Medicare payment must fully understand and follow all existing laws, regulations, and rules for Medicare payment for chiropractic services and must properly submit only valid claims for them."  Novitas states "Please review and understand them and apply the medical necessity provisions in the policy within the context of the manual rules."  The sources below reference a number of online "Internet Only Manuals" (IOMs) for your reference.

Regarding "coverage guidance" Novitas reports "it is not appropriate to bill Medicare for services that are not covered … as if they are covered."  They remind us that when billing for non-covered services that we should use the appropriate modifier code.
