Erik Paulson, a republican representative from Minnesota has introduced a new bill, H.R. 7157. This bill, if passed would expand the chiropractic coverage that Medicare offers. Currently, Medicare only offers one adjustment to those who are using it. Compared to other physicians that are covered by Medicare, chiropractic care is the only care with these restrictions. As the boomer generation nears the age for Medicare, this bill can serve as the push this county needs to halt narcotic based prescriptions as the front line defense for pain management.
