Will your services be covered by my insurance?

Once you become a patient, we will verify your insurance benefits. On your initial visit we will explain your coverage to you. This will be a quote of benefits, not a guarantee of payment. You are responsible for any balance that your insurance company does not cover including, but not limited to, your deductible, copay and coinsurance.

What are my options if I do not want to go through insurance?

Many of our patients choose not to submit to insurance for various reasons. We offer a cash rate of $145 for the initial assessment and treatment. Follow-up visits will be billed at $75 for each appointment. This amount is based on an average of the major insurance companies’ allowed amount for a typical appointment. Payment is due at time of service.

Do you accept auto claims, workers comp and personal injury cases?

 

We will submit claims for auto accidents, for workers comp and for personal injury cases. Patients must provide us with claim number and detailed information on where claims are to be submitted, including claims address, claims adjustor or contact name, and contact information.

 

Does it matter which doctor I see?

 

All of our doctors are board certified chiropractic physicians. They each employ a similar philosophy for your treatment which will integrate soft tissue techniques, functional rehabilitation and chiropractic adjustment to create an individualized approach to your health.

What can I expect for my initial visit?

Please arrive at least fifteen minutes ahead of your scheduled appointment time even if you have filled out our paperwork ahead of time online. In order to submit to insurance, we must have additional forms filled out in the office at the time of your appointment. Please bring/wear comfortable or exercise type clothing to your appointment. For example, if you have a knee complaint, please wear shorts or loose pants rather than tight jeans or leggings. If you will need to change clothing prior to your appointment, both of our offices have locker room facilities, but please allow extra time in order to do so. Your appointment will take 45 minutes; during this time the doctor will take a thorough health history, conduct an evaluation and perform an initial treatment.
