Does Medicare cover chiropractic?

Given the growing evidence for chiropractic into mainstream science, Medicare has begun to cover small amounts of Chiropractic care. This is only available if you have an Allied Health Plan for chronic problems and your GP has added Chiropractic to this plan. This requires paperwork to be completed by your GP and Chiropractor, but can usually be organised through your GP if you have a chronic musculoskeletal problem.

Medicare will probably only cover your first 1-5 sessions per year and only if Chiropractic deemed a higher priority in your treatment plan by your GP than all other complementary health providers. You are able to let your GP know your preference for complementary health services, and have your plan tailored with this in mind.
