In the U.S., most states require insurers to cover chiropractic care, and most HMOs cover these services. The Federal Government also covers chiropractic services under both MediCare and CHAMPUS (for servicemen/women).
In Canada, there is lack of coverage under the universal public health insurance system.
In Australia, most private health insurance funds cover chiropractic care, and the federal government funds chiropractic care when the patient is referred by a medical practitioner.
