Fiscal Detail and Notes
The Department of Health and Human Services will require General Fund appropriations of $629,399 in fiscal year 2017-18 and $839,198 in fiscal year 2018-19 for all chiropractic services that are approved by the Board of Chiropractic Licensure and performed by a chiropractic doctor to be reimbursed under the MaineCare program. Per 42 CFR 440.60, the Medicaid program will only reimburse for spinal manipulation and therefore, all other chiropractic services would have to be funded through the General Fund only.
