Insurance & Payment Methods

Insurance & Payment Methods:

At Johnson Chiropractic & Holistic Health Center, Dr. Johnson offers a variety of payment options for our patients.  We accept most health insurance providers for chiropractic care. We also work with many patients who have no insurance coverage, or who choose not to submit to insurance. As of 2013, we also offer prepay discounts and student rates (please inquire within).  Regardless of the amount of coverage you have, we will help you find the most cost effective method available to purchase the care you need. 

Please take note that each insurance provider offers different plans.  Though we may be in-network with your insurance provider, your insurance plan may not have chiropractic benefits.  You may get information regarding your chiropractic benefits by contacting your insurance customer service and asking for both in-network and out-of-network chiropractic benefits.

**Please note, we do not accept any insurance for functional medicine or for acupuncture servicesWe are in-network for chiropractic services only. Even if an insurance plan states that they will pay for acupuncture or functional medicine, please understand that we will not submit insurance for acupuncture or functional medicine services and the amount for care will be due in full at the time of your visit.  Upon request, we will provide you with an itemized receipt if you'd like to submit on your own.  By doing this we do not guarantee that you will be reimbursed and cannot be held responsible as such. Additionally, if asked by the insurance company to provide more information we cannot due to the fact that we are not in-network for these services.  Our policy supersedes any insurance company policy in this regard. Thank you for your understanding in this matter :)

Auto Accidents and Workers Compensation

Auto Accidents- We accept active auto claims on a case-to-case basis.  Factors we consider includes: how long ago was the accident, have you had other medical care, who's insurance has claimed liability, and if an attorney has been retained or not.  Based off how your case meets our criteria will determine if we will accept third part liability for payment or not. Please call to see if we may be able to help you with your case and if your case qualifies.  If you plan to pay out of pocket for your care after an auto accident or use your health insurance, then we are happy to help you without any pre-qualification.

Workers Comp - We will NOT submit claims to workers comp insurance.  Any care received during a workers comp case must be paid either out-of-pocket, or with health insurance if coverage is available.  If you'd like to submit the charges to your workers comp insurance or your HR representative we will give you an itemized receipt.

Affordable Care Act - Market Place Plans / Obamacare

We are in-network for Cigna's marketplace plans, we are out-of-network for Blue Cross / Anthem's marketplace plan

No Insurance / Self Pay

Patients who don't have insurance or choose not to submit to insurance find our care to be an affordable part of their health plan.  On routine office visits, many patients find that the cost of their treatment is less than many insurance co-pays! Dr. Johnson can give you an idea of your cost after the initial consultation.  Schedule a Free Initial Phone Consultation*** to find out what your financial responsibility may be.

***The Free-Initial-Consultation is a one-on-one discussion of your problem over the phone (not in office), and does not include examination, treatment, or other services. If after your consultation you agree to treatment, you are responsible for the cost of services rendered if and when you schedule your first visit.

We Accept the Following Payment Methods:

  • MasterCard

  • Visa

  • Discover / AMEX

  • Personal Check (Local Only)

  • Cash

Payment Policy: Payment is due in full at the time of service.  Fees are not negotiable. Non-payment will result in collection proceedings and credit reporting.  Our clinic assumes no financial liability if a health insurance plan or other paying entity fails to pay completely for care rendered.
