You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your chiropractic care or medical care will cost. Under the Good Faith Estimate law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are choosing not to use insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
CORE Chiropractic’s policy is to provide all new patients starting care a plan and estimated charges for all recommended services. If you are using health insurance, this plan will include the estimated insurance benefit during the course of your care. Insurance benefits are quoted using information from your insurance company and cannot be guaranteed, but we do our best to be as accurate as possible.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical services begin. You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
- Our new patient services for consultation, examination, and x-ray will not exceed $60.00. Our adjustments will not exceed $58.00. Any additional services, such as spinal decompression therapy or PEMF therapy are $58.00 each. Our recommended plan will include all recommended services for your care and will include payment options.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. This is provided to you during your Report of Findings visit in our office.
