Why do you not take insurance?
Bringing insurance into the picture does not help the patient stay focused on subluxation removal…insurance is for emergency care, and that's not what we do as Chiropractors.
Please share with us your number 1 best practice for being NID?
When you provide a service, and get paid by the person receiving that service, you are fulfilling the "fee-for-service" system that has been engrained in our society ever since bartering and trade first started. You work for the patient, and therefore are a patient-centered practice. Insurance is a medical paradigm that makes no sense to adopt into our Chiropractic paradigm. It has never even been a question whether or not I would accept a third party payment for services rendered.
What advice do you have for chiropractors out there that are insurance dependent?
Stop immediately working for someone else. The patient deserves better. Where the money comes from, is ultimately where the Chiro will focus their attention. Any distractions to the Chiropractic lifestyle that you are trying to create in your community is against your purpose, and therefore will ultimately lead to diminished returns.
What were the largest hurdles?
Other Chiros telling me that I was going to fail. My wife and I were informed this many times even before our office was open. When the results of my hard work were apparent….the convincing was over.
