Every patient receives a thorough examination to assess your areas of concern.
Our doctors carefully consider your health history. They are trained in x-ray techniques and in order to make an accurate diagnosis may take x-rays of your back and neck. After this initial exam, every patient receives a recommended course of treatment specific to the needs and health goals you discuss with our doctors. Our doctors may recommend treatments consisting of Chiropractic Adjustments, Nutritional Assessment, Spinal Decompression, Massage Therapy, Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation.

Group or Individual Insurance
We attempt to take out as much of the “insurance hassle” as possible for you. We’ll happily telephone your insurance company to verify your coverage benefits. Please remember, however, that the benefits quoted to us by your insurance company are not a guarantee of payment. We will file your claim and await payment for 90 days. If your company pays the benefits they quote to us, the only services you will be responsible for are any non-covered services, deductibles or co-pays. If you have any questions at all regarding your financial responsibilities at our office, please do not hesitate to ask. Our insurance clerk has many years of experience and will be happy to assist you.
Patients Without Insurance
An increasing number of patients do not have insurance to cover for chiropractor cost, or have plans with limited coverage, such as catastrophic policies. We realize that no one wants to build up a large bill. Therefore, we have several plans so those patients may receive complete care without undue financial difficulty. Of course, we are always happy to accept cash, your personal check, MasterCard, Visa or Discover cards. Chiropractic Center of Lakeland offers in-house financing with no interest!
Care Credit gives you the freedom to get your heath care whenever you’re ready. It’s easy to apply. With three simple steps, including an instant approval process, you can say goodbye to the waiting time and reward yourself sooner. CareCredit is 0% financing for up to 12 months
"On the Job" Injury (Worker's Comp)
If you are injured on the job, your care should be paid for under your employer’s Worker’s Compensation insurance. You will need to inform your employer of the accident and obtain the name and address of the carrier of their insurance. If your employer does not provide us with this information, if a settlement has not been made within 3 months, or if you suspend or terminate care, any fees and services are due immediately.
Personal Injury or Auto Accident
Please notify your auto insurance carrier of your visit to our office immediately. Notify our insurance department immediately if an attorney is representing you. Although you are ultimately responsible for your bill, we will wait for settlement of your claim for up to six months after your care is completed. Once the claim is settled or if you suspend or terminate care, any fees for services are due immediately.
We do accept assignment from Medicare as a chiropractor cost payment option. The check is usually sent directly to our office in payment of the services that Medicare will cover, which for chiropractors is ONLY manual manipulation of the spine. Medicare pays 80% of the allowable fee once the deductible has been met. You are required to pay the deductible and the remaining 20% as well as any non-covered services. Our office completes and files the forms for Medicare at no charge.
Please inform us of any secondary insurance you may have. We will assist you if you need help in filing.
