Excerpt: The data shows a leveling off in the chiropractic industry, and looming changes stand to impact future reumbursements. But reforms that favor effective care play to the profession's goals and strengths.
About this survey. Throughout August 2016, Chiropractic Economics extended an invitation to readers to complete a web-based survey on fees and reimbursements. Additonally, we encouraged a number of state, national, and alumni associations to distribute the survey to their members.
We limited survey participants to practicing chiropractors (or their designated office managers or CAs) to ensure accuracy.
Number of participants. This year's analysis is based on responses from 559 respondents.
Regional distribution. Participants hailed from the South (35 percent), the West (22 percent), the East (16 percent), and the Midwest (27 percent). There were two states not represented in this year's survey: Hawaii and New Hampshire.
Averages. Unless indicated otherwise, all numbers are given as averages.
Cash-only practices. Cash-only practices reported fees only.
The survey results are provided for informational purposes only. They are not intended to be used as a recommendation for setting fee levels.
Note: Where possible in this story, numbers have been rounded to the closest whole number for clarity.
