With the beginning of the New Year, many insurance plans are re-setting.  That means that if you used up your health insurance last year, you may have a new year’s worth of insurance assistance available to you.

These three tips will help you make the most of your insurance.

Your health insurance plan is not only designed for emergencies.

Health insurance also covers preventative care.  That means that you don’t have to have cavities before you see your dentist; and you don’t have to have back pain before you see your chiropractor.

Regular chiropractic maintenance can reduce your risk of injuries.  It will also treat accumulated stresses and strains, before they become excessively painful.

The majority of health insurance plans cover chiropractic care.

How many people are covered by your health insurance plan?

Some people forget that their health insurance may cover more people than just themselves.  Maybe your partner or children are covered by your insurance.  If so, they can also benefit from this assistance.

As with adults, children benefit from chiropractic “check ups.”  Don’t wait for a sports injury or complaints of “growing pains.”  Children may seem resilient, but they are vulnerable to injuries too:  strains from carrying heavy backpacks, misalignments from rough-and-tumble play, and the wear and tear of daily life.

If you, your partner, or your children haven’t been to see us in some time, the New Year is an excellent time to start off on the right foot.  Set some healthy habits now that will last all year through.

Time to make some phone calls!

We recommend that you contact your plan provider if you have questions about your insurance plan.  Common questions include the following:

How much insurance do I have?

Who does my plan cover?

Am I eligible for direct billing?

Do I have a deductible?

What percent of each visit does my plan cover?

When does my plan re-set?

Details of insurance coverage are private between you and your plan provider.

Sheppard Chiropractic Centre offers the convenience of direct billing for eligible patients.

We are looking forward to seeing you and your family this year.  Please call Sheppard Chiropractic Centre at (506) 635-8182 or (506) 847-7172 to schedule your appointments.
