It is proposed that the Medicare Act be amended to provide for coverage of the assessment and care of vertebral subluxations without the requirement that a beneficiary has a concomitant musculoskeletal condition. The amendment should also provide for objective assessment of vertebral subluxation, prohibit the use of arbitrary  caps,  and include coverage for examinations, imaging studies, and the use of specialized instrumentation to evaluate vertebral subluxation and how it affects the beneficiary’s general health.

Key Words:  Chiropractic, Medicare, Vertebral Subluxation, instrumentation, x-ray
