Methods of Payment

For patients who have insurance which covers chiropractic care including MEDICARE, we accept assignment -- patients would only have to pay co-payments and/or deductibles at time of visit.  We would be glad to verify your insurance to determine what chiropractic benefits are available and what your out of pocket expense would be, prior to incurring any charges.  Patients in work related injuries or motor vehicle accidents are typically covered one hundred percent.

We strive to keep our fees affordable.  For those patients who have a financial hardship, special arrangements can be made upon request.

Some insurance plans will require a referral from your primary care physician. Patients are responsible for obtaining these authorizations from your physician prior to your initial visit with us. Our office will verify whether your plan requires such documentation and will inform you before you come to see us to allow you sufficient time to do so.  Please advise your physician to fax your referral to our office at (516) 752-2767.

If your plan does require a referral, you may be asked by your primary care physician for our Provider ID number. A partial list of our Provider ID numbers are listed below:
