UnitedHealthcare was one of the first insurance agencies to create a health maintenance organization (HMO) during the 1980s. Since then, it has developed into one of the most trusted and utilized health insurance companies operating in the U.S.
For individuals on Medicare, treatment provided by a UnitedHealthcare chiropractor is covered by Medicare when certain coverage factors are met. For example, chiropractic techniques such as manual spinal adjustments and manual adjustments complemented with hand-held devices are covered by Medicare and UnitedHealthcare, depending on the patient's policy guidelines.
Chiropractor coverage offered by UnitedHealthcare typically requires policyholders to prove chiropractic care is medically necessary to treat their condition. For example, you must be suffering from at least one neuromusculoskeletal disorder (osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel, tendinitis, lumbar back pain, conditions related to spine issues, etc) that has received a professional diagnosis.
UnitedHealthcare chiropractor coverage factors differ according to your employer and policy. They are a network provider--PPO and HMO--and include comprehensive benefits for PPO, HMO, and other plan types. However, you may have general restrictions or limitations regarding chiropractic coverage contained in your policy.

Insurance agents specializing in chiropractor coverage often use the terms active care and maintenance care when referring to this type of coverage. Active care is chiropractic treatment provided soon after a person suffers an injury, such as whiplash or back pain following a car accident. Maintenance care occurs after a person receives active care if active care techniques do not fully treat the condition. There may be coverage limitations for either active care or maintenance care according to your UnitedHealthcare policy.
