New Beginnings and Happy Endings

The Chiro.Org Blog


I just have to share this story:


I recently called for insurance verification for a new patient, and the person droned on:


For medical care, deductible = 500, co-insurance 70%


I said, yeah fine, but I am a Chiropractor.

And then she said…”Oh, you’re a chiropractor!
(all breathless, like I was a Rock Star!)


for chiropractic deductible = 250, co-insurance 80%


so this is the FIRST company I’ve run across that preferentially prices things to ENCOURAGE patients to seek chiropractic care FIRST (to the extent that they can).

ASTOUNDING!!!

This is a strong indication that (some) Insurers have been reading the literature (see our Cost-Effectiveness of Chiropractic Page) and want to capture the savings associated with safe and effective chiropractic care.

Dylan was right (belatedly), because

The times, they are a changing!

About the Author:

I was introduced to Chiro.Org in early 1996, where my friend Joe Garolis helped me learn HTML, the "mark-up language" for websites. We have been fortunate that journals like JMPT have given us permission to reproduce some early important articles in Full-Text format. Maintaining the Org website has been, and remains, my favorite hobby.
