Fee Options

 

Our fees are competitive. Chiropractic care is a benefit of many insurance policies. When this is the case, we are able to bill the insurance company directly. Deductibles, co-payments, co-insurance fees are the responsibility of the patient and are expected at the time of service.

We are a participating provider with many, not all, insurance companies. Please check your policy or consult with your employer about your coverage.

 

Healthcare insurance companies that are organized as a health maintenance organization generally are more restrictive about the number or type of healthcare providers they accept.

 

Fees may be paid with cash or personal checks.

You will receive a receipt which you may submit for reimbursement if you have a flexible spending account or an HSA. We do not accept credit or debit cards.

 

Traditional Medicare Part B has limited chiropractic benefits. The only chiropractic service Medicare Part B covers is spinal manipulation for an active musculoskeletal condition. An active condition is a condition that can reasonably be expected to improve. While other chiropractic services are clinically appropriate, Medicare Part B will not pay for them.

 

Most Medicare Advantage Plans also follow the Medicare Part B guidelines for chiropractic care.

However, some Medicare Advantage Plans are more liberal. Please check your plan.

 

We will do all we can to make your care affordable and effective. We do not require treatment contracts or that you sign-up for a certain number of visits. Your treatment recommendations are based on your condition and what the doctor determines will help you meet your health goals.

 

Services

 

First Visit

Your first visit will include a consultation, health history, and examination. In most cases you also will receive your first chiropractic treatment. You should plan for about a one hour visit.

 

Subsequent Visits

If this is continuing care, we will start with a brief assessment,

then chiropractic treatment. Plan on 30 – 40 minutes.

 

Established Visits

If it has been awhile (months) since your last visit, we will take a little more time to review your interim health history and current concerns. Then, we will administer chiropractic treatment.

Please plan on 30 – 45 minutes.

 

If you have had a recent new injury or it has been more than 3 years since your last visit, we will take time to review your health history, current concerns, and do an examination before your treatment. Plan on 45 – 60 minutes.

 

Chiropractic Techniques

Dr. Amundsen is trained in diversified adjusting techniques.

She also uses Sacro-Occipital,  Thompson Terminal Point, and Receptor Tonus techniques, and Meridian Therapy.

 

Adjustive techniques are applied according to the condition of

the patient.

 

Imaging Studies

When X-rays, MRI, CAT or other imaging studies are needed, you will be referred to providers who offer these services.

 

Custom Orthotics:

We prescribe and fit custom made orthotics when appropriate.

Patients will be screened for asymmetrical and/or pronated or supinated pedal arches. The use of custom orthotics that support all three (3) arches of the foot can contribute to reducing back, neck, and hip pain. Custom orthotics can reduce fatigue and improve athletic performance.

 

Functional Laboratory Analysis:

This optional service can be helpful to a patient who wants a more complete assessment of their health. Functional laboratory analysis can be helpful in identifying health concerns before they require more serious intervention. It can be useful in helping people use a nutritional approach to managing emerging or chronic conditions.

A complete Functional Laboratory Analysis includes blood work, urine, hair, and stool analysis.

 

It also benefits those who want a more thoughtful approach to making decisions concerning nutritional supplementation.

This is a 3-step process. 1) consultation and history; 2) gathering

the laboratory data; 3) reviewing the report and recommendations.
