Giving you the per visit cost is only a small insight into the cost of treatment. Most conditions require more than one visit. Many less than 5, most less than 10, but sometimes more. Some offices will upsell you on various supports and supplements, and others will sell you visits you don’t need. With our approach, we rarely need to send out for xrays or advanced imaging – creating a cost savings for you – we can generally save you in time and resources with fewer visits, and longer lasting results.
If the per visit cost is the number one thing you are concerned with, we want you to be able to steer yourself in the right direction.
Your out of pocket expense will be dictated by your insurance plan if you have one. It is usually the cost of your specialist copayment – frequently about $10 – $20.
Without insurance, your cost is usually between $75 – $100 for an initial consultation, examination, and treatment. Additional visits are approximately $55 – $65. Costs will vary somewhat based on the care your condition requires.
Worker’s Compensation and No-Fault (automobile accident) patients have no out of pocket expense for treatment.
Medicare patients have a yearly deductible of approximately $150. After the deductible is met, typical costs in our office for Medicare patients is usually around $70 for the initial appointment. Subsequent appointments are typically about $30.
WHAT ARE MY CHIROPRACTIC INSURANCE BENEFITS? IT’S EASY TO FIND OUT –
We would recommend calling the number on your insurance card prior to scheduling to understand your insurance benefits. It is really quite simple. Let them know that we bill as an office and simply ask:
- What are my chiropractic benefits?
They should tell you all of the following and more, but you at least want to know:
- Does the deductible apply to the co-insurance or copayment?
- How many visits are covered per year?
If you are unable to do so – we would be happy to call on your behalf and let you know your insurance coverage prior to scheduling an appointment.
Payment is expected at the time of your visit. Patients may pay by cash, check or credit card.
