Games are for Fun, NOT Business!

Posted on 18. Mar, 2010 by drpeters in chiropractic, health care costs

The current American Health Care System has created an environment that forces healthcare businesses to play games with costs. Games such as billing ridiculous amounts for medical supplies, e.g. the infamous $200 band-aid, or providing one fee for one person and another fee for another person. Health care costs are the #1 reason that families declare bankruptcy in this country. Shouldn’t we have the best health care in the world? The reality is we do not (yet). I personally have hope that we are heading in the right direction. I had my share of playing games with insurance companies, especially in Chiropractic, where we are treated as second class citizens. Decreasing reimbursements, increased copay amounts, more medling by “bean counters”, and so on have driven me crazy! I have decided to make a commitment to providing the best Chiropractic Care in my community and streamlining administrative costs in order to facilitate a NO-GAMES, VALUE-BASED SERVICE. No more middle-men dictating care and raising costs!! Our new and exciting, a-la-carte fee structure will allow those with no insurance and ridiculous copays to receive care at our office. We will still use plans that have good benefits allowing a lower fee than our new fees too! We hope to be a part of the solution in decreasing health care costs, not part of the problem. Please tell your friends, family and co-workers and help us drive down costs and support Quality, Progressive Chiropractic Care at a Fair Fee…Call our office for more info at 704-521-1389.
