Fees For Chiropractic Care
The Functional Medicine Studio believes that chiropractic care should be available at an affordable rate to anyone who wishes to receive its benefits. For that reason we do not participate with insurance companies. Rather, we have decided to charge a flat fee of $40 per visit, simple as that. There are no other hidden fees. There is a one time new patient fee of $60 which includes exam, history, and first treatment.
Did you know that Federal and State laws do not allow for insurance and non-insurance clients to be charged different rates? This means that a non-insurance patient is subject to pay the higher rates that are billed to insurance companies. This puts cash paying patients in a position where regular chiropractic care may become un-affordable. We do not want this to happen, and that is why we charge the flat fee of $40 to everyone, regardless of whether they have insurance or not.
If you have insurance, we will be more than happy to provide you with a statement which shows the codes used to diagnose your problem as well as the treatment codes used to treat you. It will also state what you paid for your visit. You can submit this to your insurance company yourself and often times you will be reimbursed for your care by the insurance company. Patients are expected to pay in full at the time of service, as the doctor is not contracted to receive payments directly to the office.
