Treatment options, costs, time and expected outcomes are discussed in detail with each patient prior to engaging in and throughout the course of treatment.
The cost of chiropractic care depends on the type and length of treatment required. The treatment frequency may range from a few sessions per week to once a month. The length of a consultation/treatment session varies but may take 15 to 45 minutes. In most instances, the number and frequency of visits will decrease as the condition improves.
Many private health insurance plans cover chiropractic care. Patients will receive receipts that they can submit for reimbursement from their insurer. Before their first visits, patients are advised to contact their insurance provider to find out if they are covered. It is also prudent to confirm the following details:
- Amount of coverage (partial or full coverage)
- Limits of coverage
- Any requirements for a general practitioner’s referral
- Reimbursement Procedures
