Reality about Palmer care Chiropractic Columbia

Chiropractic care can complement or support medical treatment if there are additional health concerns by relieving the musculoskeletal symptoms associated with the ailment. When chiropractic care is not appropriate for the patient’s illness, or the condition merits co-management in combination with other members of the medical team, chiropractors will frequently refer patients to the appropriate health care specialist. Feel free to follow the link to my website and blog if you are interested in learning more about chiropractic.  In contrast to trying to unlock the Google search algorithm, what Medicare and insurance carriers want (and expect) in the documentation justifying your claims for reimbursement is well known. The fact that many chiropractors fail to fulfil these requirements is demonstrated by 1) increasingly failing post-examination audits and having to return thousands of dollars, and 2) an alarming number of claims being cut or denied because of a lack of “medical necessity.”  You may find more details about this at Palmercare Chiropractic Columbia.

Better documentation begins to reverse this trend. Unfortunately, many chiropractors use a collection of hand-me-down chiropractic forms from rag-tag that they got years ago at a seminar. Worse, because insurance carriers’ checks continue to appear, they assume that their travel card notes are sufficient to justify being paid for their care. After they are asked to surrender a dozen files for closer inspection to commissioned auditors who quickly find some omission or other violation, the painful truth eventually emerges.And while you can’t do anything about the past, you can begin collecting the information that meets your Medicare chiropractic requirements and insurance company expectations starting today. It begins with the new forms of patient intake used to collect their health history and their current complaint details.How would you suggest that the patient be helped? Just start adjusting for a chiropractic miracle and hope for it? If your concept of a care plan is for four weeks three times a week, followed by four weeks two times a week, etc., and you recommend the same thing for virtually every patient, the jig is up!
