People come to “The Back Care Center” with many different types of problems. We do a thorough examination before deciding if we can help with their case. Prior to starting any type of treatment, I sit down with the patient, discuss everything that was found and do my best to answer any questions they may have. One of their most common issues is about the patient’s health care coverage. That’s when I have to explain that I work for them, not the insurance company.
For my entire career, my goals for my patients have always been the same. When someone comes to the office, I want to get them better and back to doing what matters to them the most. Patients have a goal as well. They want to feel better, they want to avoid having to take pain medication daily and more than anything, they want to get back to their lives.
Insurance companies have an ambition as well. They want to make as much money as they can. Yup, that’s it! They have boards of directors, CFO’s, CEO’s as well as thousands of employees. They all have an obligation to their stockholders to make as large a profit as possible without breaking any laws. (Although, they obviously have no issue with bending them a bit!)
Health insurance problems are a fact of life. We work with all companies as well as Medicare to make certain that every patient gets as much money as possible from their policy towards their case. While we work very hard to make certain that care is ALWAYS affordable, each policy is different in its coverage. So, we base every patient’s treatment plan on their needs and not the limitations of their insurance policy.
As a chiropractor, working for the insurance company would be a nightmare since we simply don’t share common objectives. Instead, I will continue to work for my patients so together they can reach their goals and I can reach mine.
