Car Insurance for Injuries
In MN, insurance policies come with No Fault Insurance personal injury protection. This benefit covers almost always 100% of health care services related to injuries from a motor vehicle collision. Every auto insurance policy in MN is required to have $20,000 minimum coverage of medical and chiropractic expenses. This is available to everyone even if they don’t know it is there. It also covers wage loss, mileage reimbursement and replacement services. You have the right to choose any doctor.
MN state law allows someone without insurance (such as passengers and pedestrians) to have medical and chiropractic coverage if they have injuries from a motor vehicle collision.
Workers Compensation Insurance for Injuries
All employers are required to carry insurance coverage for employees. Injured workers may receive necessary chiropractic care. There are a few plans have limitations on which doctor you can choose. If you been a patient in the past with a doctor, typically you may see the same doctor again.
Commercial Health Insurance
Commercial health insurance provides coverage for short term chiropractic care. Typically coverage is limited to acute conditions or acute flare ups of chronic conditions. Most if not all commercial health insurance plans do not provide coverage for health maintenance care/pain management care. Plans vary in terms of what procedures (procedures such as acupuncture, exercise rehabilitation) are covered or are not covered. We are In Network providers for the multiple insurance plans. If you don’t see your insurance plan listed and would like to find out if you have coverage, please call our office (651) 925-5530 and we can verify coverage for you.
Budget Planning (for those with partial coverage or no insurance coverage)
Most commercial health plans cover some of the initial care, but not all the care a patient may require. At some point, coverage runs out. We are providers with a discount medical plan specifically for patients who have partial coverage or no coverage. We also have payment plans that will accommodate almost any budget. These plans work for individuals and families. With the budget plan, you will be able to pay off your balance in a stress free manner without having to wait to get the health care that you need. Budget plans are typically used for high deductibles, high co-pays, little to no insurance coverage, multiple family members under care and wellness care.
FLEX, HSA (Health Savings Accounts) Plans
We accept many FLEX and HSA plans. These exist to help the patient pay for their financial portion and percentage of their care.
