    AAPC: Back to School
    Good morning!
    I'm trying to find documentation on the Medicare website stating that they will or will not pay for office visits (i.e., 99213) rendered by a Chiropractor. I believe I found what I was looking for, but I was wondering if there was anything more definitive out there. I've got the Medicare Benefit Policy Manual, Chapter 15 (Rev. 138, 02-15-11). Article 204.

    If someone has anything else, could you please let me know?
    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Sarah,

    It appears that CMT only is paid by Medicare.

    Highmark Medicare Services for J12 is offering a webinar on Chiropractic Services for Medicare on 4/27/11.

    This is the link to the handout material: https://www.highmarkmedicareservices...ts-042711a.pdf

    I know from experience that Medicare will not pay for office visits. If the Patient has a secondary insurance then most likley that insurance would pick it up..
