  • how many times can u go to a chiropractor? California

    I got injured at work and have been seeing the chiropractor. But recently, he said that I can't see him anymore because the workers' compensation carrier only limits to 12 visits. Is this true?

    chiro visits

    Not necessarily. The law states that more than 24 (not 12) visits may be authoiirzed based on medical need.

      It is unlikely that all 24 would be approved at one time. Has the chiro actually sent medical evidence that the continued treatment is needed and sought authorization for them? I can't tell you how many times providers get the initial authorization back for X visits and once that ends, do no more.
      I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.

        bobbi, I'd like to request that you not use "texting" speak on the forums. Not all of us are familiar with texting abbrievations and it makes your posts difficult to read. Please spell your words out - you, not u; right, not rt. You have plenty of space here; you're not restricted to only so many characters.
        The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
