An Act To Amend the Law Governing MaineCare Coverage of Chiropractic Treatment
Sec. 1. 22 MRSA §3174-AAA, sub-§1, as enacted by PL 2017, c. 421, §1, is amended to read:
Sec. 2. 22 MRSA §3174-AAA, as enacted by PL 2017, c. 454, §1, is reallocated to 22 MRSA §3174-BBB.
This bill requires all chiropractic services that are within the scope of practice of chiropractic doctors and performed by a licensed chiropractic doctor to be reimbursed under the MaineCare program. Under current law, the Department of Health and Human Services is required to reimburse for only chiropractic evaluation and management examinations.
The bill also corrects a numbering problem created by Public Law 2017, chapters 421 and 454, which enacted 2 substantively different provisions with the same section number.
