Do I need a referral to see a chiropractor?: transcript

do i need a medical doctor’s  referral to receive chiropractic care  
and the answer is no most chiropractic  offices are independent offices outside  
but also working with traditional medical care now  the only exception to this where you might need  
a medical doctor’s referral is if your insurance  requires it and most insurances don’t require it  
the exception i’m thinking of is medi-cal or  medicaid if you’re in a different state than  
california under medi-cal insurance rules you  will need a primary care physician’s referral to  
receive chiropractic care most chiropractors will  not accept medi-cal reimbursement is way too low  
for for all the paperwork involved in  having a medi-cal patient as a patient  
now i work in a multi-disciplinary clinic in  sonoma where i work alongside medical doctors  
osteopaths nurse practitioners where we  see almost exclusively medical patients  
and in that situation i receive medical  referrals for every patient i see
