SB 228 - This act requires health carriers to reimburse non-network chiropractors according to the same formula as any other non-network provider is reimbursed. Under current law, a health carrier is not required to reimburse for services rendered by a non-network chiropractor unless prior approval has been obtained from the health carrier.
