Cost of Care and Payment Policy

We are often asked the following questions regarding payment for services rendered by Dr. Phelts:

DOES THE DOCTOR ACCEPT INSURANCE? 

The simple answer is NO! Insurance is NOT ACCEPTED. However, if you have an insurance plan that might offer reimbursement for chiropractic care (i.e. PPO, POS, Major Medical) paperwork will be provided to include in your submission of claims to your carrier. Unfortunately, reimbursement for services rendered in this office is not available for those with coverage through an HMO, Medicare, Medicaid, Champus or other like insurance programs.  

AT WHAT COST WILL THE SERVICES RENDERED BE BILLED?  

Since the year 2010, Dr. Phelts has billed $60 each 15 minutes or $240 an hour for services rendered. As these services are billed using insurance codes, prices quoted are approximate, as the final bill for service on any particular visit may vary according to codes billed.  

WHAT FORM OF PAYMENT IS ACCEPTED? 

Payment can be made by cash, check, Zelle, debit or credit card (i.e. Visa, MC), It is

understood that payment is due at the time service is rendered.  

HOW MUCH TIME IS SCHEDULED FOR EACH OFFICE VISIT? 

Your first visit with Dr. Phelts will be scheduled for a minimum of 45 minutes and a maximum of 90 minutes. Variability in patient presentation requires flexibility in the time required for consultation, examination and treatment. You will be billed only for time spent with the doctor. Follow-up visits are scheduled according to need and are most often 30 minutes to 1 hours in length. Our minimum office visit is 30 minutes.
