Some common questions that might arise...
What insurance do you accept?
The insurance industry is readily changing, currently our office accepts PEHP, Blue Cross Blue Shield (all plans including Federal), Cigna, United, UMR, Select Health/Med (as long as there is chiropractic benefits assigned to your plan), Medicare assignment, All Auto accident coverage and all US Department of Labor Workers Compensation.
What if I do not have insurance, or my services are not covered?
For patients who do not have chiropractic or rehabilitation coverage, flexible payment options can be addressed on individual needs. If you or your family does not have coverage, there is still a way to receive the care you need. Many patients will pay directly for his/her care because he/she will discover the cost-effective and affordable nature of care for the long term.
Can I use my savings in my Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA)to pay for services?
Most if not all FSA and HSA cards are accepted in our office as well as receipts are provided for reimbursement accounts. All, or almost all of the services or products provided in our office should be covered. It is best to contact your healthcare administrator to find out the specific requirements for your individual account as some accounts vary depending on the provider.
How long does it take to get better?
Dr. Teran Warner is dedicated to resolving your health issues or referring you to additional doctors to improve your health as quickly as possible. Every health problem and every patient is different and there is no "cookie cutter" treatment and number of treatments that every patient who walks through the doors will have to follow. The biggest key to a speedy recovery is to work together with at home care as well as office visits to resolve the issues at hand. An individual consultation will be conducted to discuss your options and treatment plan as well as answer any and all questions you might have. With that being said, a majority of chiropractic patients have reported having at least a 40% reduction in symptoms following the initial treatment.
How long will an average visit last?
An "average visit" will last about 20 minutes. This of course depends on the treatments that need to be applied for your needs. The initial consultation and examination on your first visit, followed by the appropriate treatment could take anywhere from 30-60 minutes. Again, it is important to remember that these are averages, and the providers at CopperWell Chiropractic will take the appropriate amount of time to treat you as a person as well as a patient.
What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Chiropractors take a hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. The doctors of chiropractic treat their patients by performing a "chiropractic adjustment." The purpose of the adjustment is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile/restricted.
Does the adjustment hurt?
Generally it does not hurt; however, in some cases it can be temporarily uncomfortable. If you have concerns, please discuss them with Dr. Teran at your first visit.
Is chiropractic safe for children?
Yes, in fact children often respond much faster than adults. Sometimes chiropractic can even help with conditions such as ear infections and colic. We have several families who will all come in together and be treated together. All care is tailored to that individual and pressure and treatments can change depending on age and physique. We have treated a baby as young as 3 days in our office.
