We talk about auto accidents and chiropractic care a lot on here, but it seems we can’t spend enough time talking about how to take advantage of the insurance dollars you have access to after an auto accident. Many wonder how they file the claim, or if they’re going to have to pay out of pocket for their care. Check out the FAQ below for more information:
1. What info do I need to take to my first chiropractic appointment after my car accident?
Not much information is needed, besides your claim number from the insurance company. We’ll take care of the rest for you. It will be helpful to have pertinant information regarding your accident, how you were hurt, etc., so feel free to bring notes if that’s helpful.
2. Will I have to pay anything out of pocket?
At Balanced Health Chiropractic and Massage in Midvale, UT, you can expect to not need to pay out of pocket for your auto-accident related chiropractic and massage care. We’ll take care of the required billing to the insurance company, so again, just bring your claim number from your insurance company. If you have additional questions, we’re always here to explain everything.
3. How much money or PIP dollars do I have access to?
That’s a good question for your insurance agent or insurance company, although it’s good to know that if your policy is through the state of Utah, you’ll have a policy minimum of $3000.
4. How often will I need to make visits to your chiropractic office?
It will depend entirely on your injury and the care prescribed by Dr. Eric Cheney. However we’ll keep you in the loop and your questions are always welcome.
5. When should I schedule a chiropractic or massage visit after my car accident?
If you’ve been in an auto accident and are experiencing any of the signs of whiplash, including soreness, a diminshed range of motion in your neck and back, or headaches, it’s time to schedule your initial chiropractor visit. If you’ve expereienced any bruising as a result of your car accident, wait to schedule any massages until after the bruising has begun to heal.
