Does health insurance cover chiropractic care?

Most health plans cover some chiropractic care for acute or short-term conditions. New Hampshire statute requires health plans that cover chiropractic care cover a minimum of 12 visits. You may be required to pay a co-pay at the time of your visit, so be sure to check your Summary of Benefits and Coverage Document.

However, many insurance plans do NOT cover chiropractic care for maintenance and wellness treatments. If you are being treated for a chronic, long-term condition, refer to you Summary of Benefits and Coverage Document or contact your insurance company to find out what your plan covers.
