How Can I Pay for My Chiropractic Treatment?

Seeing a chiropractor is a great way to work out tension in your body and adjust any injured joints. It is especially helpful after an injury. However, chiropractic treatment isn’t covered by every plan out there, so it’s important to know different methods of paying for it.

Health Insurance

It is becoming more common for insurance companies to cover chiropractic care. However, you need to make sure you are aware of the stipulations for your specific plan. Some plans will cover you but will require a copay. In some cases, there may also be limitations. For example, you may only be able to use in-network chiropractors. You might also need a referral from your doctor that it is necessary, and you may be limited to a certain number of visits. It may be helpful for you to contact your provider or their customer service so you can accurately understand their coverage and whether or not you need to pay.


Worker’s Compensation

If you are injured while on the job, worker’s compensation is available to cover the cost of your injuries and other medical expenses. In many cases, this will include chiropractic care. However, there are also restrictions here. Workers comp only covers authorized treatment from injuries on the job, so make sure you have everything lined up before your first appointment. You need to have proof that the injury happened while on the job and you may also need a referral from your doctor. You can also only use chiropractic care if it directly treats the injury you received while working.


Out of Pocket

If you are not covered by your health insurance or worker’s compensation does not apply, you may need to pay out of pocket. This might seem like a lot, but it can be manageable. The cost of seeing a chiropractor will vary depending on your situation as well as the chiropractor you see. In some cases, you may only need to pay $30 and in other cases it could be several hundred dollars. When determining cost, consider what your injury is and the services you will need. Some chiropractors will make adjustments on an adjustment table, and this is fairly straightforward. Others may have more advanced technology they use. So, the price will depend on the services you need and the chiropractor you see. However, it is still manageable to pay out of pocket.


If you receive back, neck, or head injuries, chiropractic treatment is the most ideal option for your situation. Paying for this care is the most complex part and it depends heavily on your situation. Take time to understand how you are covered and what your payment options are.
