My Insurance Finally Covers Chiropractic Care!
September 30, 2010 by Answer Provider
It feels like I’ve been waiting years to get my health insurance to do anything useful for me. I have one of those types plans where if I need a helicopter ride to the hosptial after a major injury, I’ll be glad to have it.
If I try to do anything preventative or just plain ol’ healthy – well, I’m on my own. Forever I’ve been paying for my health insurance but haven’t had much luck in actually using it. (Of course that hasn’t prevented my rates from going up year after year.)
So today is the day. My plan finally covers me if I want to go see a chiropractor. Believe me, I’ve been wanting to go to a chiropractor for years. It seems like every time I get close, something gets in the way.
Now, going to see a chiropractor isn’t so expensive that I couldn’t afford it if I really needed it. Most I talked to even have payment plans or discounts for people in my situation. Still, I just didn’t want to have to pay extra when I feel pretty good already.
I feel like using my health insurance is for when I’m sick anyway. (Sounds silly when I say it out loud like that.) It’s just paying ten dollars every time I go to get an adjustment is just way better than paying fifty.
I also wonder if I’m missing out some extra treatment just because I can’t afford the “whole enchilada.” Turns out it wasn’t true. My visit went great, insurance is picking up most of it, and I got the same kind of treatment I would have got anyway.
Good stuff. Today is going to be great day. My spine feels better already. Let’s hope I never have to use my insurance for something more serious!
