Should I Pay Out Of Pocket For Chiropractic Care?

In order to provide the best service possible, I don’t participate in insurance billing. Here’s why:

1. It’s becoming less and less of a sustainable business model for clinic owners and chiropractors. 

I remember billing insurance. It was a nightmare.

I was very unhappy because I wasn’t being paid for my work. I would turn in my claims and something was always wrong and I would always get denied.

I choose to focus on spending more time with patients, honing my skills, and getting great results for patients. Taking insurance distracts me from this focus and yes, actually prevents me from delivering top-notch care.

I also have a business to run in order to make sure I can continue to deliver care in the long run. I knew, at that time, that I couldn’t pay the rent in $4.00 co-pays per head.

2. You are considered a number and a billing code under the current insurance system. And it’s only getting worse. 

In other words, it forces me into a tiny box of time and choices I have for delivering treatment. If your issue doesn’t fit in the box, to an insurance company, it’s not valid. 

Did you hear what I just said? Did you see what I just thought ? Did you understand it?  I just dwindled you and your existence down from a specific and beautifully unique human being into a head coming through my door.

Under this system, you’re not a real person anymore, you’re an insurance card.

Since you are now an insurance card, I will eventually push you into treatments you don’t need because I’ll get paid. I’ll push you away from treatments you need because I won’t get paid.

I refuse to put myself inside this position. I’m the Doctor, not the insurance company!
