Boise Chiropractors are often asked...Will my insurance cover chiropractic?

Do you take insurance?

We are a cash practice, but we will bill your insurance for you. This means that we ask for payment following each day of service (cash, check, debit, or major credit card). On your first visit to our office we will take your insurance information and our office staff will bill all services to your insurance company on your behalf. We ask them to remit payment directly to you (the patient). We are not on any preferred provider lists. We do not accept or bill Medicaid or Medicare. The best way to find out what your insurance will cover is to work with our office manager to produce the likely billing codes that will be used in your treatment, and then call your insurance company directly and ask. Should your insurance mistakenly send a check to our office instead of the patient directly, we will credit your account or write you a check for the amount we received.

Do you treat car accidents?

Yes, motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) are accepted in our office. In these cases we do not hold the patient responsible for payment following each visit, as we will bill the responsible insurer at the end of treatment. Our office manager will help you in collecting all the proper paperwork and file numbers to ensure a smooth payment for your services.

Do I have to keep coming forever once I start?

Absolutely not! We do not sign patients up for any kind of long term commitments or treatment plans. We are strictly pay-as-you-go and quit whenever you want for any reason. Our goal is to fix the problem! In our view, if you need to see us 3 times/week for life to maintain your health, then we are not doing our job. We typically recommend 6 visits over three weeks for a patient with back pain. Some people require more work, some require less. We try to address the body as a whole, and fix the problem, so that you don’t need to see us as often. Patients who wish participate in wellness care to help prevent future recurrences of issues, and improve their overall health, are encouraged to discuss a proper adjustment frequency with their chiropractor.

Why do I need X-rays?

We require x-rays for all areas of the spine we treat in adults over 18. X-rays allow the chiropractor to visualize the structures of your spine and some of the soft tissues. They help prevent adjusting areas of the spine that may have anomalies that should not be adjusted. The x-rays will also help visualize how your lifestyle is impacting your spine. The x-rays improve the quality of care, and safety of the patient. We do accept imaging from other clinics. Typically x-rays should be less than 5 years old, depending on the history of the patient, and will be retaken if there was a major trauma since the last images were taken (such as car crash or major fall). Children will only be x-rayed if a fracture or other injury is suspected from trauma. We do NOT x-ray pregnant women.

How much will treatment cost?

Cost of treatment varies with the type of care given. This will be discussed when you initially consult with our doctors and choose the route of treatment. Our goal is to help stabilize the body so that patients hold their adjustments for longer periods of time. Ideally patients will remain pain free so that they can lead an active and healthy lifestyle.
