Leave it to insurance companies and we’re doomed.

Not too long ago, there was a law recently lifted from having a chiropractor adjust any joint other than the spine… It stemmed from a women who sued a chiropractor who worked on her knee and complained that it didn’t feel any better… soon, the insurance company got involved and asked the chiropractor why he worked on her knee and he replied, “thats where the issue was, not in the spine”. Because of that suit, which was actually a improperly submitted insurance billing code, all chiropractors were banned from working on joints outside of the spine. When we leave healthcare up to the insurance companies, people will be doomed. Hence why I bill my clients directly. If they pay me out of pocket, they listen and do everything I say. If I was an insurance taker, clients would dismiss most of what I tell them to do. Keeping people informed will only help our business thrive and slowly shut down the insurance and medical world. Remember, “specialist doctors know more and more about less and less until they know everything about nothing…” ~Paul Chek
