When Insurance Runs Out

When Your Chiropractic Insurance Coverage Runs Out

When chiropractic insurance runs outMost insurance carriers see their obligation limited to the care necessary to return the individual to their pre-incident status, or your capped limits have been reached.

That means coverage ends when periodic evaluations indicate that continued care won’t produce further improvement. Like discontinuing a regime of antibiotics as soon as symptoms subside, this will likely expose you to a needless relapse of your original problem.

This is why many chiropractors recommend some type of ongoing, periodic chiropractic checkups. Like brushing and flossing your teeth, regular visits can help support your progress.

Granted, insurance companies aren’t interested in reimbursing for this type of nonsymptomatic care, but after several episodes of stopping and starting chiropractic care, many patients see the wisdom of continued care without the involvement of their insurance carrier.
