CMS on chiropractic services: Comply with Medicare billing requirements

In a recent report, Medicare Needs Better Controls To Prevent Fraud, Waste, and Abuse Related to Chiropractic Services (https://www.oig.hhs.gov/oas/reports/region9/91602042.asp), the Office of Inspector General (OIG) determined that payments for chiropractic services did not comply with Medicare billing requirements. Overall, medical record documentation did not support medical necessity or corrective treatment. CMS developed the Medicare Documentation Job Aid for Doctors of Chiropractic (PDF) (https://go.cms.gov/2FEieCu) MLN Educational Tool to help providers bill correctly.
