One of the main reasons that we hear people avoid visiting a chiropractor is due to the cost. When we hear stories like this, we always try to explain that almost all insurances cover chiropractic care and the cost to the patient is typically quite low. The reason so many people don’t realize that their policy covers chiropractic care is because it’s not something many health insurance providers are actively advertising.
At Straight Up Chiropractic, We Accept Most Major Health Insurances.
We offer this to our patients because we want high-quality chiropractic care to be as accessible to the Oregon public as possible. This is why we work with patients and their insurance coverage to ensure that they receive the best treatment for their individual needs. Most of our patients covered by insurance pay very little if anything at all. In fact, the average out of pocket expenses for our patients with accepted insurance is about $20 per visit. Based off of what we hear from patients, had they known about their insurance coverage before they would have visited us a lot sooner!
Insurance Will Even Cover Our In-House Massage Therapists.
When a patient comes in with a soft-tissue injury, our highly skilled massage therapist will take care of their treatment needs. It may be a surprise to some people that their insurance will most likely cover this treatment too! Many patients don’t realize that we can bill your insurance for an hour of physical therapy, performed by our licensed massage therapists prior to your chiropractic appointment. Then the chiropractic care and massage treatment can be under a single copay. This saves many of our patients a significant amount of money on their massage therapy, as well as their chiropractic care.
We Have Options For Patients Without Insurance Coverage too!
We believe that all of our patients should have access to the chiropractic care that they need. This is why we offer our patients without health insurance coverage a cash rate. This cash rate makes their chiropractic treatment affordable, so they get back to feeling great again. Everyone knows that the true downfall of insurance is reaching your dreaded deductible. Some deductibles are relatively small, typically averaging at around $1,000 for the year. However, we have seen them as high as $15,000 annually. When we see a deductible that high, it just doesn’t make sense to use your insurance to cover the treatment, so we will offer you our cash rate instead.
At Straight Up Chiropractic, we strive to ensure that our patients always receive the chiropractic treatment that they need. This is why we accept most health insurances and even offer cash rates to our patients who aren’t covered. If you have questions about your insurance in reference to your chiropractic needs, feel free to contact us today. We will be happy to let you know what your insurance will cover and give you a good idea of what your out of pocket cost will be.
