Your Pensacola Chiropractor often hears directly from patients that they regret not seeking Chiropractic treatment earlier. The number one reason for this hesitation is due to unfamiliarity with insurance and coverage. Many patients state they are unsure how affordable chiropractic care would be for them. It is quite common now for patients to have new and unfamiliar policies with large deductibles or co-pays. As a healthcare provider, we understand that the confusion surrounding healthcare coverage can be a bit tricky for patients to understand. Therefore, we hope this short article will help future patients to navigate their plans and understand that even the best chiropractic treatment can be affordable! Our office does not require a payment plan and although a certain amount of visits may be recommended and encouraged- we are also flexible in working with our patients availability and needs.
First and foremost, we always recommend patients contact their own health insurance companies. Often times these companies will provide more information to the patient than they will to the office. It has become easier to find this information with the creation of online portals that patients use their own personal log in information and are able to navigate based on physician specialty. Instead of having to call the number on the back of your insurance card you can now create a user name and password linked to your exact plan. This allows patients to access doctors and healthcare centers within their network.
In using Chiropractic care in Pensacola, FL as an example, you would simply log on and search your insurance company’s network provider directory for Chiropractor in Pensacola, FL. Typically a list of Chiropractors in Pensacola, that are within a reasonable distance to your location, will be provided. From there you can follow up with checking out the Chiropractors’ websites, reviews like this one ratemds.com reviews like this one, Google reviews, and patient testimonials to determine which would be the best Chiropractor to suit your needs.
You should also be able to access how many visits per year are allowed. The most common are 12, 24, or 36 visits a year and even some plans may not have a limit. This would be important information for patients to know. Your health insurance company should also break down the expected costs and co-pays that your plan includes, these will vary and not all insurance plans are the same. However, do not let this dissuade you from seeking care. Many offices provide standard fees that will cover your chiropractic care even after your insurance coverage cuts off – feel free to contact the office and discuss these options before making an appointment.
