Balanced Chiropractic does not participate with any insurance plans.
Because we cannot provide the high level of individualized care for each patient that walks through our doors..if we worked in an insurance-based office.
In an "in-network" office, Chiropractors will often see 15-20 patients an hour to make up for poor insurance reimbursement rates. You will see the actual Doctor for a few minutes and then spend the rest of the time with an assistant doing exercises, or using estim & heat, lying on a rollerbed.
It's very hard to provide a personalized and thorough treatment in a few minutes of time.
During your appointment at Balanced Chiropractic, you spend the full session with Dr. Suzanne Pikula, DC, and usually need fewer visits overall. We do offer packages to assist with costs.
We keep pricing simple with no hidden fees. The treatment fee covers every type of therapy needed for your visit.
There are several reasons:
In an "in-network" office, the insurance company determines the type of treatment that you get. Doctors that accept insurance are forced to see high numbers of clients to make their business model work.
1. Doctors who take insurance are forced to use a limited set of “insurance-approved” treatments in order to receive payment, regardless of your needs. The insurance company determines your treatment, NOT the Doctor.
2. In an "in-network" office, Chiropractors will often see 15-20 patients an hour to make up for poor insurance reimbursement rates. You will see the actual Doctor for a few minutes and then spend the rest of the time with an assistant doing therapies.
This type of treatment model typically requires 3-4 visits a week.
3. We believe that the best type of treatment comes from hands-on care by the Doctor and a more whole-body approach, with longer treatment times, which eliminates the need for multiple appointments a week.
This type of treatment typically involves fewer sessions and patients report faster results therefore the out-of-pocket costs are minimal when compared to an insurance-based clinic.
4. Insurance companies also allow only a "standard" number of sessions a client is allowed to have despite the condition that they have.
5. It's very difficult to achieve structural stabilization as this cuts the therapy short & the original issue often returns later.
