Suggest a push for a set Medicare visit limit such as 20 per year but with no utilization reviews or audits, or a taming of documentation requirements such as dropping QVAS and PSFS type requirements.

Seniors need us. We need to create the appropriate message of trust and expertise. Then we need to get primary care docs to refer to us. Older population believes everything PCPs say.

Increasing opportunities for seniors to participate in chiropractic care can start when they are patients before they become seniors and they learn the benefits of continuing care whether they have symptoms or not. Another way is to be a community leader and teach the benefits a senior gains from regular care, especially remaining independent.
