Does California Medi Cal Cover Chiropractic Services?

Does Medi Cal cover Chiropractic Services?

I have recently been approved for Medi Cal; I'm curious as to whether their services would cover chiropractic services.

Yes it does.
I was a Medical Chiropractor while working in California.
The sad thing was, almost nobody ever called me for it - I think they didn't realise it was there!
And I was practically giving the treatment away too!
Call one - they will be happy!

Is denti-cal (medi-cal) still available in California or they don't offer dental services anymore?

I know that medi-cal used to cover dentist and glasses, but I think I saw a website saying there is Denti-cal, is it available?

For children under 21, it's still available the way it always has been.
For most adults 21+, it's pretty much limited to emergency services including extractions, treatment of infections and pain relief. See for more information.

Is medi-cal really being cut back for adults?

I heard through a couple friends but haven't received a notice from my worker yet. That as of July 1, 2009 Medi-Cal will no longer cover Dental, Vision or Mental Health for adults anymore.

Like, with a chain saw. California is a fiscal basket case on life support. Expect cuts to come hot and heavy in All State spending.
