Medicare Needs Better Controls To Prevent Fraud, Waste, and Abuse Related to Chiropractic Services

This portfolio presents an overview of program vulnerabilities identified in prior Office of Inspector General audits, evaluations, investigations, and legal actions related to chiropractic services in the Medicare program. It consolidates the findings and issues identified in that work and discusses recommendations from prior reports that have not been implemented or have been implemented ineffectively. In addition, this portfolio provides information to help the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services understand the need for effective controls over chiropractic services and offers recommendations to help Medicare prevent fraud, waste, and abuse related to those services.
