Unlimited Chiropractic Care for a month? It's too good to be true!"<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
I'm often asked why I don't take insurance, and why my monthly fee is so low. Many believe our fees are too good to be true, and wonder what the catch is. The simple fact is with the rising costs of healthcare, something has got to give. Chiropractic care is so valuable everyone should have access to it, regardless of their financial situation, regardless of whether or not they have access to so-called health insurance. The following is a simple outline of some of the main reasons our fee schedule is set up the way it is.
Why a monthly membership?
It's a simple fee that anyone can understand.
It's low enough that virtually anyone can afford.
The greatest benefits of chiropractic care come from time and repetition.
Flat fee lets YOU know immediately and always what your chiropractic budget is.
Prevents conflicts of interest inherent with per visit fees.
My recommendations are based on YOUR needs not MY fees.
It lowers the financial risk of trying chiropractic care.
It's more like a long-term investment in your health than a short term expense.
Why don't I file Insurance?
If you don't have to file insurance claims for your chiropractic care, it helps keep your premiums lower.
If you don't file claims, there's no entry in the insurance database that could affect your insurance rates or job status in the future.
Keeps our overhead low, which allows us to keep our fees low.
Reduces paperwork and procedures built around justifying demands of insurance "bean counters" instead of giving you the care you need.
Insurance is designed for catastrophic occurrences that might require hospitalization, ot for maintenance of health.
Chiropractic is designed for health and to keep you OUT of the hospital.
Insurance is betting against yourself. Chiropractic is betting ON yourself.
