S1E9: Your Chiropractic Insurance Billing is Not Enough

Episode Recap

Your chiropractic insurance billing is not enough.

The decision you make regarding pricing, billing, and insurance will directly impact the growth and sustainability of your chiropractic practice.

Most chiropractors choose the path of least financial resistance

And then decide to “go in-network” with any insurance company that will allow them in.

But the real question is…

Are you doing everything you can to take care of people who are uninsured or underinsured?

Chiropractic insurance billing and patient coverage has changed and with co-pays and deductibles that are sky high.

Nearly every patient you see is a “cash” patient in some capacity.

Has your messaging and model evolved?

If you are setting your fees based upon what insurance companies are willing to pay…

You may be racing to the bottom in terms of collections.

You would also be creating billed charges that out of reach for uninsured or underinsured people.

What if the people who sought proactive care were able to afford, and understand, the benefits of your care?
