Chiropractors and acupuncturists are often patient’s choice of care in worker’s compensation cases. Neuromusculoskeletal (Nerve, Muscle, and Bone/Joint) conditions are the most common type of condition in worker’s compensation cases, and neuromusculoskeletal conditions are the most common condition that Chiropractors and acupuncturists treat. Chiropractic and acupuncture are both approved forms of treatment in worker’s compensation cases.
The California Worker’s Compenastion system allows up to 24 chiropractic visits, distinct and separate from any physical therapy.
When coming to our clinic for chiropractic or acupuncture care, follow these 3 steps:
1. Request chiropractic or acupuncture therapy from your worker’s compensation insurance adjuster (representative). You may also need your primary treating physician (main, overseeing doctor) to submit a prescription to your insurance adjuster.
2. Once your insurance adjuster (representative) has approved the treatment, give our office a call to schedule an appointment. If you are not sure if the treatment has been approved, call your insurance adjuster (representative) to check on the approval status.
3. Our office will contact your insurance adjuster (representative) to obtain an authorization letter for treatment.
4. Come in at your scheduled appointment time!
