On behalf of Noridian Healthcare Solutions, LLC; your Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC), the Alaska Chiropractic Society is assisting in sharing an important educational article with our members. 

Noridian participated in a national workgroup of Medicare contractors called the Comprehensive Error Rate Testing (CERT) A/B MAC Outreach & Education Task Force.  This task force works together to educate and communicate national issues of concern regarding Medicare improper payments, as measured by the CERT post pay review program.  The common goal is to reduce the CERT error rates and improper payments in the Medicare program.   

Noridian realizes many of the services rendered by chiropractors are not be covered by Medicare, and wanted to provide you direction on those approved. In collaboration with CMS, there is an April 2019 educational tool Medicare Documentation Job Aid for Doctors of Chiropractic. The job aid provides documentation guidance to help Doctors of Chiropractic medicine properly respond to requests for medical records. One of the important links is the Educational Resources to Assist Chiropractors with Medicare Billing or special edition (SE) 1603.

Please review these educational tools to assist you when treating and billing for  Medicare patients. 

Here are some additional MLN articles that you may find helpful.
