We strive everyday to make our care available to as many people as possible by offering them options when is comes to the cost of care. Listed below are a few of those options.
New Patient Online Special
For a limited time New Patients who “LIKE” the Chiropractic Center on Facebook can receive their initial examination, x-rays (if required), and their first adjustment for the low price of $69.00 (a $200 value)
Cash is a term to describe a type of payment schedule not necessarily the form of payment. Cash patients generally pay for services at the time or before they receive them and in return receive a discounted rate. These payments do not have to be paid with cash to apply to you. Acceptable forms of payment include: personal check, Visa/MasterCard/Discover, money order, and of course cash. We diligently try to keep this rate low enough that those without insurance, those with insurance but little or no chiropractic coverage, and those with high deductible insurance can still gain access to care.
We are happy to submit claims to your health or auto insurance company for payment as a service free of charge. We will also make a detailed check of your insurance coverages at the beginning of care in order to counsel you on your options. We also recommend you check you coverage as well anytime there are changes to you policy. We also do our best to make sure we are In Network providers for as many health insurance companies as possible. If we are not In Network we will check with your carrier to see what Out of Network benefits your policy has. Below is a list of some of the companies we have current contracts with. This is not meant to be comprehensive or a guarantee of coverage. The best way to know for sure is to check with your carrier. The doctors are listed as:
Raymon T. Johnson D.C. or Michael L. Kreutz D.C.
Blue Shield of California PPO
Out of state Blues (Cross, Shield, or combination of both) PPO
United Healthcare PPO and HMO
Blue Cross of California PPO (out of network benefit only)
Plus- your plan may include out of network benefits that may pay for a portion of your care.
If you have standard Medicare coverage it will cover your chiropractic adjustments at a portion of their allowable charges. This means you will have a co-insurance of between $5 and $8 dollars. Medicare does not pay for the initial evaluation and any X-rays that we take even though these are requirements for care under Medicare. If you have a secondary they may or may not pick up the remaining portion depending on the plan. It may be necessary to check with your secondary to confirm what they will pay. If you have a Medicare plan that required you to turn over your benefits to a third party (like SCAN or Secure Horizons) it is up to that specific company whether they will pay for chiropractic care. We are of course happy to help you navigate the process and facilitate you getting the care you need when you need it. We love our Medicare patients and continue to take them on as other doctors continually drop out as preferred providers because the compensation is less than other insurances. We know the process can seem complex, but we have a skilled staff that will do their best to make it an easy process for you.
Tri-Care is the insurance for members of the Military and their families. At this time Tri-Care does not cover chiropractic. Because of this fact, and our desire to show our appreciation to the members of the armed forces, we have a special that we extend just to active duty members of the military and their families. This includes the initial evaluation and xrays for $25 and treatments for $30. We find this has allowed us to treat many of our neighbors from Camp Pendleton and beyond.
Care Credit – Coming Soon
Care credit is a form of revolving credit specifically for medical/dental/chiropractic needs. An application can be done in office, or if you are already a care credit holder we can accept payment.
