Abstract

Resources are urgently needed to survey levels of work by chiropractors in providing their various health services. The methodology should be the one used by the Health Care Financing Administration to assess other specialties. A range of generic manipulation codes should be developed and tested in a similar fashion for submission for inclusion in Physician's Current Procedural Terminology (CPT). A seed range of descriptions is presented. A systematic collection of practice overhead costs and malpractice risk should be undertaken and documented using standardized methodology.
