St. Louis Park Chiropractor Explains Chiropractic Health Insurance Coverage-lformat

Health Does your insurance cover a chiropractor in St. Louis Park? Hi…my name is Dr. Harlan Mittag, I’m a chiropractor, nutritionist and acupuncturist, and the founder of Mittag Holistic Chiropractic in Minneapolis and St. Louis Park, Minnesota. People often ask me if insurance covers chiropractic treatments. The answer is yes, with some qualifiers. Chiropractors often sign contracts with insurance .panies in order to be designated as providers of chiropractic care that is covered by that insurance .pany. This is an agreement between me (the chiropractor) and the insurance .pany. Insurance .panies like this because we in doing so we agree to certain regulations of the insurance .pany. Chiropractors like this because we get free advertising in the insurance .pany’s provider manuals. So the qualifier is…if the chiropractor is a provider for a specific insurance .pany, then you’ll get the maximum pay out from the insurance .pany for your chiropractic treatments. That is, it will cost you the least. Generally speaking, in Minnesota, chiropractic treatments are covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medica, Health Partners and Medicare and a number of other smaller .panies. In Minnesota anyone who has been in an auto accident is also covered by the auto insurance. This means you don’t need a referral from a medical doctor or anyone else if you want to see a chiropractor and be treated. Sometimes chiropractors include alternative treatments that are not covered by the insurance .pany. This can vary from one insurance .pany to another. For instance some insurances cover acupuncture whereas others do not. Generally speaking insurance .panies will not cover nutritional services like nutritional consultations, or pay for vitamins and herbs. But if you have a medical savings account through your work, usually prescribed nutritional supplements can be covered through your medical savings account. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
