An Important Note about Insurance Coverage:
Over the last several years the Chiropratic profession has been significantly affected by the changes in insurance coverage. Many plans no longer cover "Maintenance" or "Wellness" chiropractic care. Instead, many plans only provide limited coverage for acute injury conditions through traditional chiropractic spinal adjustments, but no further. In addition, a growing number of companies simply refuse to provide reimbursement to practitioners for the time or resources spent performing therapies such as ART, Exercise Rehabilitation and training, Kinesiology taping, or even examination of new injuries that may occur throughout the year.
If your Insurance plan falls within this category, (Generally HMO and EPO type plans), we offer appropriately adjusted cash rates for the services not reimbursed by your insurance in order to provide you with the care you need, even when your Insurance company says it isn't. We also are happy to provide you with Superbills to provide to your insurance company for your own direct reimbursement.
