In an effort to keep our costs low for all patients and avoid raising prices, we will be making the following changes in 2022:
Effective January 1, 2022:
• We will no longer be accepting new Medicare patients. Due to Medicare guidelines, unfortunately we will be unable to see new patients who have Medicare even if they agree to pay for the visit themselves. Medicare prohibits us from doing so under our contract.
• We will no longer bill Medicare Advantage plans. Patients who have Medicare Advantage plans who wish to continue their care with us can pay for their visit at the time of service since the contract falls with a separate insurance company and not Medicare.
• We will no longer bill any insurance for new patients. Patients may bill their insurance on their own if they choose to do so.
*While payment will be expected at the time of service, upon request we will continue to bill insurance for existing patients who we have billed for previously. However, due to ever changing insurance regulations and reimbursement rates, we will eventually stop billing all insurance companies, including Medicare, for all patients by the end of 2022.
*Due to our contract with Medicare, we will continue to bill Medicare through the end of the year 2022.
2022 Fee Schedule*
New Patient Visit: $100 (Includes New Patient Exam at $55 and adjustment at $45)
Optional care package: $200 (Includes 5 adjustments at a rate of $40)
*Dr. French is no longer accepting acupuncture patients unless they are already under chiropractic care or wish to seek chiropractic care simultaneously.
*Additional exam costs may apply to existing patients who have not been seen recently or who have a major change in health history due to an accident or various other reasons. The cost of such exams can be discussed with the doctor prior to care.
*Rates apply to patients who are paying for their visits at the time of service.
