Is Chiropractic or Medical Care Covered By Insurance?
Committed to Making Healthcare More Affordable for Patients in Amarillo, TX
Creek Stone Integrated Medical Accepts Most Insurance Plans, Making Healthcare More Affordable for Patients
In today's healthcare landscape, many clinics have started going to concierge and membership style pracitice. Lots of others are only accepting cash patients and have stopped accepting health insurance altogether. The patient pays cash upfront, the clinic gives them a 'superbill', and the patient has to file the insurance on their own and fight the insurance companies to try to get their reimbursement.
This can, understandably, make it difficult for patients to afford the care they need, especially if they have health insurance. Afterall, most of have never been taught how to file our own insurance claims.
Creek Stone Integrated Medical is proud to accept almost all insurance plans for both medical, exercise/rehabilitation, and chiropractic care, making healthcare more affordable and reasonable for our patients.
Why are so many clinics moving to a cash-only model?
There are a few reasons why clinics are moving to a cash-only model. One reason is that the cost of healthcare is rising. Insurance companies are also increasingly denying claims and reducing reimbursements to providers. This makes it difficult for clinics to stay afloat while accepting insurance.
Another reason is that the administrative burden of dealing with insurance companies is high. Clinics have to spend a lot of time and resources on billing and coding. This can take away from the time they have to spend on their patients.
What are the benefits of accepting insurance?
There are several benefits to accepting insurance. First, it makes healthcare more affordable for our patients. Patients with insurance typically have lower copays and lower deductibles than they would if they were paying cash. This means that they are more likely to be able to afford the care they need. Pain is a three-part formula; the bio-medical part, the psychological part, and the sociological part. It's the biopsychosocial construct that makes up pain and the sociological part is partially made up of the ability to pay for care. So, under that lens, accepting insurance is vital if we are going to get our patients out of pain.
Second, many patients are looking for providers who accept their insurance. By accepting insurance, Creek Stone Integrated Medical is able to reach a wider range of patients that truly need our help.
