New Beginnings and Happy Endings
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).
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
