Based on the proliferation of more recent studies that have selected (by means of provider codes) a patient population that is narrower, yet more homogeneous, I conclude that the burden of proof for the higher cost of chiropractic healthcare without hospital services remains on the authors of this article. There appears to be too many questions raised by this study that, if they remain unanswered, prevent it from becoming a major addition to the chiropractic literature.
