En español | Medicare covers manipulation of the spine to correct a subluxation (when one or more of the bones in your spine move out of position), when provided by a chiropractor. You pay 20 percent copayment of Medicare-approved amount. You must also pay your deductible for Part B services and supplies before Medicare begins to pay its share.
You pay all the costs for any other services or tests ordered by a chiropractor. However, Medicare will cover the cost of an X-ray ordered by another physician to demonstrate spinal subluxation for a chiropractic patient.
