At Zaker Chiropractic, we make it our mission to provide high-quality chiropractic care and physical therapy services to all of our patients. To do so, we accept a variety of financial assistance options, including health insurance from most major providers.

By accepting health insurance for chiropractic care and accepting cash payment options, you can rest easy knowing you're getting the care you need without added financial stress.
As of July 2020, the Affordable Care Act has made it possible for government-funded and private health insurance providers to cover chiropractic care! Chiropractic care encompasses various pain management techniques including acupuncture, spinal adjustments, and unique therapies to improve overall health.
Both private health insurance companies and government-funded plans such as Medicaid and Medicare deem chiropractic care valuable enough to cover their costs. Chiropractic care must, however, be performed by licensed chiropractic at a licensed facility such as Zaker Chiropractic. Covering costs performed at a licensed facility helps ensure the patient's safety.
Physical therapy is a vital part of recovery from an injury or surgery. As such, it is deemed necessary to cover using private and government-funded insurance plans. Physical therapy can be covered in order to prevent injuries (such as for seniors living in assisted living), to help recover from an existing injury, or to help manage a chronic condition such as chronic pain.
If you're wondering how much chiropractic care and physical therapy costs without insurance, there are certain variables to take into consideration. Costs for treatment will depend on the length of the appointment, the treatment options you select, and the condition that you are receiving treatment for. For our patients that don't have any health insurance, we still want them to receive the best care possible from our chiropractors.
This is why we accept cash payment options for all of your chiropractic care! Whether you want to pay out-of-pocket by choice or don't have health insurance available, we'll work with you to create the best, affordable payment plan.
Your out-of-pocket costs, known as your co-payment, will vary depending on the type of health insurance plan you have. Some out-of-pocket costs can be as low as $30 per visit. However, most insurance companies will also require that you pay a minimum deductible along with coinsurance.
Deductibles can range from $1,000 to $5,000, while coinsurance plans can range from 15-to 30%. Other health insurance plans will ask you to pay for all of your medical expenses upfront, but only to a certain amount. This is known as a maximum out-of-pocket plan.
When choosing insurance plans, you might notice there are two types to choose from, known as HMO (Health Maintenance Organization) Plan and PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) Plans. HMO plans are generally cheaper and more affordable, with lower deductibles and coinsurance percentages than PPO plans.
On the other hand, PPO plans do tend to be a bit more expensive, with some plans requiring you to pay your maximum out-of-pocket costs before they provide any additional coverage. However, PPO plans are more flexible, allowing patients to choose their own providers. With HMO plans, you might need to get a referral from your primary care provider first before visiting a chiropractor.
