Chiropractic Informed Consent

The nature of the chiropractic manipulation: I will use my hands or instrument to move joints of

your body. This may result in an audible “pop” or “click”.

The material risk inherent in an adjustment: As with any health care procedure, there are certain

complications that may arise during a chiropractic manipulation. This may include strains, dislocations,

fractures, disc injuries, and strokes. This list in not all conclusive.

The probability of those risks: Fractures are rare and can result from an underlying weakness in

the bones. The other complications are considered rare. One source states that stroke is a possible

occurrence in 1/1,000,000 cases or higher. We employ tests during our examination to identify if you

may be susceptible to that kind of injury.

Ancillary treatment recommended: Manipulations, cervical rehabilitation, cervical traction, lumbar

traction, lumbar rehabilitation, manual therapy, electrical modalities, physical modalities, ice therapy,

and heat therapy.

Other treatment options for your condition may include: Medical care with prescription drugs,

self-management with over-the-counter medication, rest and/or surgery. There is material risk

inherent in each of these options, including but not limited to, addiction to medications, side effects of

medication, improper self-dosage, and surgical risk, including complications from the procedure and

the anesthesia.

I have read or have had read to me the above explanation of the chiropractic adjustment and the

related treatment. I have discussed with the doctor and have had my questions answered to my

satisfaction. By signing below, I state that I have weighted the risks involved in undergoing treatment

and I have decided that it was in my best interest to undergo the treatment recommended. Having

been informed of the risks, I hereby give my consent to treatment.

About Medicare

ABOUT MEDICARE COVERAGE

The government’s Medicare program only pays Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) for limited services. If your needed Chiropractic Adjustment (manipulation treatment) meets Medicare’s rules, they will usually pay for it. There are three categories of Medicare services: 1.) non-covered 2.) always covered, and 3.) perhaps covered.

NON-COVERED

According to existing Medicare law, most of the available services in our office are NON-COVERED. Hopefully, the U.S. Congress will change that someday and treat Doctors of Chiropractic like all other doctors. Until then:

Examples of Non-Covered Services

All Services Other than Chiropractic Adjustments:

· Office Visits- to evaluate and manage, re-evaluate, advise, or

counsel.

· Physiotherapy- such as massage, traction, electrical

stimulation, neuromuscular re-education, etc.

· X-rays, Laboratory, Supplies, Vitamins, etc.

Various Chiropractic Adjustments:

· Adjustment on an area other than the spine- (to the shoulder, arm, leg, etc.)

· Maintenance Care- you are stable and not making any more improvement.

· Wellness Care- to promote better health.

NON-Covered items will appear on your insurance claim form.

They will show as a Medicare NON-Covered service like this: “72010-GY”. The “72010” code is for an x-ray. The “–GY” code means that it is not-covered, allowing your service to go through the Medicare system. After denial by Medicare, it can then go onto your other insurance. If you have Medigap insurance (also known as Medicare Secondary or Supplemental insurance), they will pay according to the terms of your contract.

ALWAYS COVERED

A Typical example of a Medicare COVERED service (or clinically needed) is when you are in much pain due to a bad spinal condition. You should also expect Medicare to cover and pay for your rehabilitation as long as you are improving. When you have a COVERED chiropractic spinal adjustment (manipulation treatment), it will be shown on your Medicare claim form and payment reports as either “98940”, “98941”, or “98942”.

PERHAPS COVERED

Your Chiropractic Adjustment must be clinically needed according to Medicare. If Medicare thinks your condition is not “Medically Necessary”, they won’t pay. If we know or believe that Medicare will not pay for your Chiropractic Adjustment due to any rules that they might have, we will let you know. We will give you a special Medicare form known as the Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN).

STATEMENT OF UNDERSTANDING

I understand that I am personally financially responsible for all Medicare NON-covered services. I also understand that there could be times when my chiropractic adjustments might not be covered. If so, my doctor will let me know. I am also responsible for any annual deductibles or applicable copayments as required by Medicare.

By signing below, I hereby authorize that all of the information stated about myself is truthful, and that I have read and agree to the above statements outlined in this form:

About Medicare

ABOUT MEDICARE COVERAGE

The government’s Medicare program only pays Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) for limited services. If your needed Chiropractic Adjustment (manipulation treatment) meets Medicare’s rules, they will usually pay for it. There are three categories of Medicare services: 1.) non-covered 2.) always covered, and 3.) perhaps covered.

NON-COVERED

According to existing Medicare law, most of the available services in our office are NON-COVERED. Hopefully, the U.S. Congress will change that someday and treat Doctors of Chiropractic like all other doctors. Until then:

Examples of Non-Covered Services

All Services Other than Chiropractic Adjustments:

· Office Visits- to evaluate and manage, re-evaluate, advise, or

counsel.

· Physiotherapy- such as massage, traction, electrical

stimulation, neuromuscular re-education, etc.

· X-rays, Laboratory, Supplies, Vitamins, etc.

Various Chiropractic Adjustments:

· Adjustment on an area other than the spine- (to the shoulder, arm, leg, etc.)

· Maintenance Care- you are stable and not making any more improvement.

· Wellness Care- to promote better health.

NON-Covered items will appear on your insurance claim form.

They will show as a Medicare NON-Covered service like this: “72010-GY”. The “72010” code is for an x-ray. The “–GY” code means that it is not-covered, allowing your service to go through the Medicare system. After denial by Medicare, it can then go onto your other insurance. If you have Medigap insurance (also known as Medicare Secondary or Supplemental insurance), they will pay according to the terms of your contract.

ALWAYS COVERED

A Typical example of a Medicare COVERED service (or clinically needed) is when you are in much pain due to a bad spinal condition. You should also expect Medicare to cover and pay for your rehabilitation as long as you are improving. When you have a COVERED chiropractic spinal adjustment (manipulation treatment), it will be shown on your Medicare claim form and payment reports as either “98940”, “98941”, or “98942”.

PERHAPS COVERED

Your Chiropractic Adjustment must be clinically needed according to Medicare. If Medicare thinks your condition is not “Medically Necessary”, they won’t pay. If we know or believe that Medicare will not pay for your Chiropractic Adjustment due to any rules that they might have, we will let you know. We will give you a special Medicare form known as the Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN).

STATEMENT OF UNDERSTANDING

I understand that I am personally financially responsible for all Medicare NON-covered services. I also understand that there could be times when my chiropractic adjustments might not be covered. If so, my doctor will let me know. I am also responsible for any annual deductibles or applicable copayments as required by Medicare.

By signing below, I hereby authorize that all of the information stated about myself is truthful, and that I have read and agree to the above statements outlined in this form:
