An Act To Amend the Law Governing MaineCare Coverage of Chiropractic Treatment

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 22 MRSA §3174-AAA, sub-§1,  as enacted by PL 2017, c. 421, §1, is amended to read:

1. Reimbursement.  The department shall reimburse under the MaineCare program for all chiropractic evaluation and management examinations services performed by a chiropractic doctor licensed under Title 32, chapter 9 that are within the scope of practice of chiropractic doctors. This subsection does not limit reimbursements under the MaineCare program that may be available for other chiropractic services or affect any limits that may apply to reimbursements such as limits relating to numbers of visits.

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.
