Did you know that a medical corporation, professional service corporation or limited liability company needs its own license to operate legally in Illinois? This means that owners of these entities must not only form the corporation through the Secretary of State, but they must also file for and obtain a professional license from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR), even though all of the owners and practitioners possess individual licenses.
The Illinois Chiropractic Society (ICS) has been working with the American Medical Association (AMA) in 2018 to clarify problematic language published in 2007 in the CPT® Assistant. The ICS noted that the 2007 guidance was overly inclusive in the number and types of services bundled as part of chiropractic manipulative treatment (CMT). We are happy to report that the AMA has recently revised this language to remove from the CMT narrative some of the elements that are more appropriately characterized as part of a patient re-evaluation.
