Insurance & Payment
Dealing with insurance companies can be confusing. Don’t sweat it, we are here to assist you through all steps of your care. We have provided you a brief overview of payment options so you know exactly what to expect.
- Referrals: Medicare does not require a medical referral for chiropractic care. Your chiropractor will examine you and recommend a treatment plan. Your condition will be re-evaluated every 4-6 weeks to determine whether there is need for further care.
- Rules and regulations pertaining to Medicare billing for chiropractic care: We will bill Medicare. Medicare will only pay for chiropractic adjustments they determine to be “reasonable and necessary” and related to an acute condition. If Medicare denies any adjustment or service, your secondary insurance will most likely not cover the services.
- Reimbursement Regulations: Medicare regulations will not reimburse for the following: Exams, Rehab Procedures such as Exercise Training, Massage, X-rays, or Supports. Although they will usually pay for chiropractic adjustments/treatments, they may not pay for all treatments within a certain time period. Non-covered services will be charged directly to you and you will be responsible for payment. Please see Medicare Waiver.
