Does Title 19 cover massage?

Postby Chloe309 on Wed Jul 07, 2010 8:30 pm

I have a possible client who has Title 19 and Medicare I think. They are in a nursing home. I dont think massage would be a covered service. How would I find out? Maybe I can call there Insurance for them? Anybody out there know if t/19 covers massage?

No, it doesn't cover it. Occasionally they will have a spending allotment that they can choose to spend on massage, but frequently what they get is not nearly enough, and they have to buy their shampoo, toothpaste, etc. out of that, too. :(
