Maintenance/Wellness Care includes services that seek to prevent disease, promote health and prolong and enhance the quality of life, or maintain or prevent deterioration of a chronic condition.
If you are filing health insurance, many insurance plans do cover chiropractic benefits. However, even if your insurance coverage does include chiropractic benefits, it does NOT include maintenance/wellness or supportive care.
Regardless of the number of yearly visits covered under your plan, or the number of visits you have not yet used, the insurance company will not pay for maintenance/wellness or supportive care services.
If you have health insurance, please contact our office. We are happy to run your insurance benefits for you, so you know exactly what is covered. If your insurance includes chiropractic benefits, insurance companies do not pay for maintenance/wellness or supportive care services like [Golden Rule Alumni] Insurance companies will pay for your adjustments, if they are, “medically necessary.” To be considered, “medically necessary”, your chiropractic adjustments must adhere to the following:
Our chiropractic adjustments must relate directly to a musculoskeletal complaint,
Your adjustments must be making functional improvements within two weeks, AND
You must follow your chiropractor’s specific treatment plan for active treatment.
Once your care does not adhere to all of the guidelines listed above, your adjustments are no longer, “medically necessary” per the insurance companies’ medical policy. Further chiropractic treatment is considered, “maintenance/wellness or supportive care”—none of which are covered by your insurance company. You will be responsible for payment of those services.
Most HSA and Flex accounts will still reimburse you for these services.
If your health condition changes from your current status as a [Golden Rule Alumni], your doctor will examine you for that condition/injury and the claims for those visits may be filed to your insurance company if the claims follow the guidelines of being medically necessary.
