I am new to Chiro billing and need to know if an assistant can do therapy on a patient under the supervision/direction of the Chiropractor?
I believe they can but do they need to be licensed?

Thanks!

The state you are in will determine the licensing requirements. Here in Wisconsin, Chiropractic Technicians must be licensed to provide therapies such as ultrasound, inferential, hot/cold packs and laser light. A quick call to your state chiropractic organization will tell you all you need to know!

Does anyone know why UHC is denying chiro claims all of a sudden.
4 - The procedure code is inconsistent with the modifier used or a required
modifier is missing. Usage: Refer to the 835 Healthcare Policy Identification Segment (loop 2110 Service Payment Information REF), if present.
