If you suffer from back pain, neck pain or headaches then you deserve to know the truth about chiropractics and your health insurance.
Do insurance plans cover chiropractic?
Yes. Chiropractic care is included in most health insurance plans, including major medical plans, workers’ compensation, Medicare, some Medicaid plans, and Blue Cross Blue Shield plans for federal employees, among others. Chiropractic care is also available to active-duty members of the armed forces at more than 60 military bases and is available to veterans at 36 major veterans medical facilities.
What will my insurance plan cover?
That depends on your insurance coverage.
Usually most plans cover the cost of chiropractic care for short-term conditions. However, many patients often have a co-pay at the time of their visit just like you would with any other doctors visit.
What about long term coverage?
When you suffer from conditions that are chronic, severe, or that stem from health problems, it is vital that you speak to your insurance company to find out the extent of what your health plan will cover.
While most acute problems are covered, don’t be surprised that they will not cover maintenance or wellness treatments.
As research continue, insurance companies will hopefully begin to cover more conditions down the road.
Will i need maintenance or wellness treatments?
That depends on you.
If you are the kind of person that just wants the pain to go away and is not interested in addressing the cause of the problem then come in for an appointment as needed.
On the other hand if you are interested in getting to the root of the problem then a regular maintenance routine is encouraged along with adopting healthy lifestyle habits.
Remember it is your health.
You only get one body.
Don’t you deserve to feel as good as you could?
Why not give a Chiropractor a chance to show you how chiropractics could make a difference in your life?
