Bernd Chiropractic Financial Policy

Welcome to Bernd Chiropractic. 
We would like our patients to understand our fees and be satisfied that they are reasonable and equitable. 
PAYMENT IS DUE AT THE TIME OF EACH VISIT, AND IS RENDERED AS YOU LEAVE. 
We accept Master Card and Visa and if necessary we can take a post date check. If for some reason you cannot make payment at the time of your appointment, please discuss the matter with our receptionist (BEFORE BEING SEEN) so that a mutually satisfactory agreement can be arranged.

How we bill your insurance:

We wish to stress that the financial responsibility for services rendered rests with the patient or their family, regardless of insurance coverage. As a courtesy we will bill your insurance company for you. Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance provider. We cannot guarantee payment of your claim. if the claim is not paid, the insurance provider should explain why it was denied, and you are responsible for payment of previous services rendered.

Worker’s Compensation Insurance:

Chiropractic services may be covered by Workman’s Compensation Law, and you should be covered 100%, as long as you have reported the injury to your employer and your employer is covered by Worker’s Compensation Insurance. Under current Workman’s Compensation Laws your claim must be authorized or denied within one working day after having filed. Please check with your employer regarding any other requirements of the the company’s worker’s compensation policy.

Medicare:

Our Office does not accept assignment for Medicare. The patient is required to pay for the visit at the time of service. As a courtesy, we will bill Medicare for you and you will be reimbursed by Medicare for services rendered. Medicare will typically pay for 12 adjustments per year.

Services NOT covered by Medicare include chiropractic X-rays, supplements, therapy modalities and supports. You will be expected to pay for these services when rendered or purchased.

Missed Appointments:

We require 24 hours notice when canceling or rescheduling an appointment. A $25 fee may be assessed if appointments are missed (or rescheduled) without the proper notice.
