For most of us, health is our greatest asset. We support you in your pursuit of living up to your potential. We support healing, growth, and well-being by correcting neurospinal dysfunction.
We accept cash, check, and credit/debit card as forms of payment. Additional family members pay reduced rates for their care. Most of our patients use monthly payment arrangements, paying only for services received. We also work with a health care financing company that has an interest-free repayment period.
We can directly bill worker’s compensation and personal injury protection (auto injury) claims, and there may be a small deductible related to auto claims.
We may be able to directly bill MHCP programs, if your coverage is not administered by a third-party private medical insurance company.
We can provide you with documentation to submit claims for reimbursement for chiropractic services to your medical insurance company on an out-of-network basis.
Medical insurance coverage of chiropractic care is limited to short-term relief of musculoskeletal symptoms like headache, neck pain, and back pain. Medical insurance companies require proof of medical necessity to pay towards a claim. Many of the symptoms that we see in this office fall outside of the musculoskeletal realm, and the medical insurance company would deny payment of those claims.
Medical insurance companies may provide other restrictions. Low-force chiropractic techniques, which are used in this office, may be excluded from coverage as being “experimental and investigational,” even if they are effective at relieving musculoskeletal symptoms. Similarly, some medical insurance companies do not cover chiropractic services for infants and children.
Wellness care, or maintenance therapy, is excluded from medical coverage for all private and government third-party payers. Medicare’s definition of chiropractic maintenance therapy is: “A treatment plan that seeks to prevent disease, promote health, and prolong and enhance the quality of life; or therapy that is performed to maintain or prevent deterioration of a chronic condition.” But doesn’t the concept of maintenance make sense, like having a protection plan? After investing in braces for your teeth, wearing a retainer protects your investment. The truth is, maintenance is a law of life. Your car, your lawn, and your relationships all need to be maintained, just like your family’s health.
