New IRC Study Documents Role of Chiropractors in Minnesota's No-Fault Auto Insurance System
Date:9/12/2008

MALVERN, Pa., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Chiropractors now account for a greater share of total provider charges in Minnesota's no-fault insurance system than all other types of treating providers combined. According to a new study from the Insurance Research Council (IRC), 58 percent of all provider charges for treatment of no-fault insurance claimants in 2007 were from chiropractors.

Between 2002 and 2007, average chiropractor charges in Minnesota increased 30 percent, from $122 to $158 per visit. In addition, the percentage of PIP claimants receiving chiropractor treatment increased approximately 5 percent. Minnesota had the third highest utilization rate for chiropractors (42 percent) among 17 states with no-fault insurance claims. Only Washington and Florida had higher chiropractor utilization rates in 2007.

"These findings help explain why auto insurance costs are so much higher in Minnesota than in any of its neighboring states," said Elizabeth A. Sprinkel, senior vice president of the IRC. "Minnesota clearly is atypical when it comes to the utilization of chiropractic s
