Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn recognizes that price is a worry to some when it comes to your choice of chiropractic care. Our staff at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is most knowledgeable and is here to talk you through your particular circumstance.
Please understand that although not every chiropractic treatment technique has gone so far as to develop and publish its algorithm of decision-making - its "standard of care" - a specific algorithm of decision-making is published regarding application of Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression, our highlighted chiropractic technique of choice. This accepted and published protocol asks for 3 to 6 visits per week as acceptable for care of a radicular pain patient (one who has intense pain extending down the leg or arm) and 2 to 3 visits per week for a non-radicular patient (one whose pain is contained only in the back or neck).
If your chiropractic insurance coverage covers spinal manipulation, it will most likely pay for Cox Technic. The same applies for coverage of ancillary care items (like, electrical stimulation, nutrition, support belts). Check with your insurance plan or ask our staff to assist you with finding out. Most insurance companies only pay for active care and not for supportive or maintenance care. After you have graduated from active care to supportive or maintenance care, you will then be a "self-pay' patient and insurance can no longer be used or billed, per the insurance companies especially BCBS, Anthem in Virginia. We are no longer accepting any more Anthem or BCBS new patients. If you would like for us to courtesy bill your health insurance for you, we can do that. However, your charges will be the usual commercial rate.
Realize that insurance coverage does not control what is needed to regulate your spinal pain - leg pain, arm pain, neck pain or low back pain. You and the staff at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn must determine what chiropractic care is appropriate to relieve your condition and regulate the pain. If your insurance says it will only pay for 12 visits and your spinal condition demands that you be seen daily or a couple times a week until your pain is alleviated, you will have to decide what is best for your health.
Understand that Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is most willing to work with you and your insurance/financial situation to the advantage of your health and pain-free quality of life. Just ask.
