Does My Medical Insurance Cover Chiropractic Care?

Who does your doctor work for? If you think it is you, you are probably wrong!

A lot of people ask me, “Does my insurance cover chiropractic care?”

New patients come in looking for their insurance to cover their care. When you get that little insurance card, that is not health care.

That is medical care. Insurance care is useful once you’ve already had a health crisis, once you’re already dealing with a health issue.

It doesn’t cover you to get preventative care. It doesn’t cover proactive care. It doesn’t cover anything that enhances and prolongs the quality of your life. So we’re going to dive into this a little bit deeper.

Insurance Care is Reactive, Not Proactive

Proactive health care is not considered medical necessity.

  • You wouldn’t expect your car insurance to cover oil change or rotation of your tires.
  • You don’t expect your homeowner’s insurance to change out the filters, to update your equipment.

Insurance doesn’t cover the routine maintenance that you know is good to prevent problems from coming up.

Who DO Your Insurance Covered Doctors Work For?

Does your doctor work for you? The truth is no.

I used to be on a bunch of insurance networks and what they do is they constantly limit the amount of care we’re able to give you. They limit the scope of what we can do in evaluations. They’re constantly badgering us to release you early so that you cannot get well.

This is symptom based care.

If you’re going to the doctor on the list because it’s cheaper, you’re choosing to go to a person who works for the insurance company. And you know as well as I do, their goal is not to get you well. It’s to save money.
