At North East Chiropractic Center, we believe that all of our patients deserve to have healthcare. That is why we work hard to make our services as affordable as possible. One of the most common ways are patients reduce the cost of their visit is by using health insurance. There are a few important points that everyone should know about health insurance and chiropractic care.
Yes! Health insurance is commonly used to help patients afford the costs associated with a visit to the chiropractor. With this in mind, it is also important for our patients to make sure they read the details regarding their individual health insurance plans carefully. In general, many of our patients receive their health insurance through their job. The coverage and scope of these individual plans can vary from person to person.
Please know that our patients are encouraged to know about their insurance plans prior to the visit. Anyone with questions about their plans should either ask their employer about the plan or call us for assistance.
Some patients may elect to come and visit a chiropractor without health insurance. This is completely fine. We believe in transparency and we will do our best to let our patients know how much the visit is going o cost prior to arrival. The cost of a chiropractic visit will vary depending on the treatment techniques used, the exact nature of the injury, and the condition that someone would like to have treated.
Having health insurance can significantly reduce the cost of the visit. Similar to visits to other medical practices, there will still be some out of pocket expenses even with chiropractic insurance. In general, the cost of the visit even with chiropractic coverage will be around $30 to $200 per visit. Some of the factors that might influence the cost of the visit include the type of appointment, the amount of the copay, and any coinsurance that might be present.
In general, there are two different types of chiropractic insurance that someone might have. The first is called an HMO (health maintenance organization) plan while the other is called a PPO (preferred provider organizations). These are very different in terms of their chiropractic coverage. Individuals with an HMO plan are going to enjoy lower copayments, reduced premiums, and low costs out of pocket. On the other hand, HMO plans will typically have a smaller network of healthcare providers.
Furthermore, HMO plans will not cover providers who are considered to be out of network. The alternative PPO plan could be more expensive but it provides out of network coverage (which may cover the entire United States), has a much larger network of covered providers, and can allow individuals to go to a specialist without requiring a referral.
At North East Chiropractic Center, we work hard to accept numerous health insurance providers and plans. Please note that these are all PPO insurance plans only. Our accepted chiropractic insurances include:
