A WORD ON FEES
Office fees depend on the severity and complexity of the
patient's condition. It will dictate the amount of time Dr.
Wolff needs to spend with you in examination, therapy and
treatment. X-rays, if needed, are charged separately. The first
visit typically includes examination, treatment and needed
therapy. We do our very best to never turn anyone away that is
truly in need. Please do not hesitate to call us and discuss your
situation with our office personnel.
DO YOU TAKE MY INSURANCE?
Dr. Wolff is a preferred provider for just about every plan:
Unions, some HMO's, PPO's, Medicare, and most private plans
included. Simply contact your insurance company's Customer
Care Center and check your benefits for chiropractic, Or, when
calling for your appointment let us know about your plan and
we'll check for you. The office is set up to process your
insurance claim quickly and we are happy to process your claim
DOES MEDICARE PAY FOR CHIROPRACTIC?
Yes! Medicare pays for up to 12 treatments a year. They pay for
adjustment of the spine only, and will not pay for therapy,
office visits, or X-rays taken at the chiropractor's
Dr. Wolff is a Medicare Provider and accepts assignment. This
means that the patient is responsible only for their regular,
yearly deductible and Medicare-Approved co-pay. Co-pays are about
$6.00 for the adjustment. Medicare does require that X-rays of
the spine be taken yearly, and we always try to get them taken at
a Medicare-Approved facility to minimize out of pocket expense.
Sometimes Dr. Wolff may suggest therapy or other treatment that¹s
not covered by Medicare, but rest assured that no patient will be
charged for something that they are not aware of or did not
approve of! The office also submits billing to Medicare and
Secondary insurance carriers for your convenience.
WHAT ABOUT WORKER'S COMPENSATION?
California Law gives injured workers the right to see a
chiropractor. The Employer can direct the worker's care for
30 days. After that, a worker may change "Treating
Physicians" and Dr. Wolff has helped hundreds and hundreds
of workers with simple to complex injuries. Many times, an
employer is willing to get the insurance company to OK
chiropractic treatment right away. The employer wants a healthy
worker on the job, not someone who's on pain pills and
driving around town! As always, if you have any questions, call
the office and we¹ll answer any questions that you might have.
Accidents are no fun. With over a decade of hands-on help to
injured patients, Dr. Wolff works hard to get you better as fast
as possible. And Dr. Wolff has extensive experience communicating
your situation to attorneys and insurance companies.
When your injury does not require an attorney's help, Dr.
Wolff will be able to help you even when you don't want an
attorney involved. You can have the other party's insurance
pay for your treatment so that you suffer no out of pocket
expense. Sometimes, we may need to bill your auto or health
insurance before the other side will cough up payment. But
don't panic! Your insurance rates WILL NOT GO UP!
Getting stomped on the football field injures you the same as a
car crash. Dr. Wolff treats you as if you need to get back out
onto the field fast. He knows that you live your life out there,
not in his office.
