Chiropractic and health insurance: care plan, benefits
Do you have private health insurance? If so, you will be interested to continue reading this post to find out how you can integrate chiropractic care through your insurer.
Unlike other countries such as the United States or most European Union countries, in Spain chiropractic care is not offered by the public health system. Although we will deal with this subject in more depth later, it is worth noting that it is increasingly common to find private health insurance companies and insurances that cover chiropractic adjustments as a care plan to heal possible ailments and optimise health.
For this reason, the Momentum Quiropràctic team will tell you briefly and concisely about chiropractic care and how you can benefit from it with your health insurance based on our experience as professionals.
If you’ve come to this post without much of an idea of what chiropractic is, don’t worry!
Chiropractic care consists of optimising your nervous system by correcting the subluxated segments (misaligned vertebrae that create interference) of your spine. With chiropractic adjustments, your body’s ability to heal and adapt is restored so that you can enjoy a higher quality of life with physical and emotional well-being.
The holistic nature of chiropractic adjustments also has a positive impact on boosting your mental performance, as well as helping you to better manage daily stress and enjoy greater wellbeing in most areas of your life. If you want to find out more about all the benefits for optimising cognitive functions, don’t miss this post 😉
And if you’re asking yourself… “But do I need chiropractic care?”, the answer is: YES. No matter where you are in your life, everyone (children, adults…) can benefit from chiropractic adjustments and their improvements to your health and well-being.
Moreover, at Momentum Quiropràctic we always like to remember our Smart Empowerment philosophy: start with chiropractic in a preventive way to optimise your full potential and empower you.
Health insurance providers and Chiropractic Care
As we mentioned at the beginning of this post, chiropractic is a health practice that is little recognised in Spain, despite the fact that countries such as Switzerland, Denmark, Finland and Norway, among others, include chiropractic care as part of public health care.
Scientific evidence supports the great positive impact of chiropractic on the wellbeing and development of the country and its inhabitants. For example, the study carried out by Sarnat et al. (2007) showed that chiropractic care considerably reduces the number of hospitalisations and their duration, as well as the number of outpatient surgeries and the cost of taking medication. In addition, it also plays an important role in the promotion of well-being at work for companies thanks to its potential, as we explained in this post.
That is why it is increasingly common to find insurers that offer health insurance where chiropractic is covered as a care plan for individuals and work teams.
Therefore, if you have health insurance for your family, your company offers private insurance or you have an international insurance coverage, you should check if it includes chiropractic care. The following is our experience as a chiropractic centre that includes our chiropractic care service for patients with private insurance.
Advantages for patients with health insurance
At Momentum Quiropràctic we have patients who integrate chiropractic care through their private insurance company.
The most common is that you can issue the invoice for the chiropractic service (chiropractic adjustment vouchers) to your insurance company and you will be reimbursed in full or in part, depending on the policy you have taken out. For example, insurers such as AXA with the Optima PLUS plan or Asefa, cover chiropractic care in full.
Therefore, it is recommended that if you are planning to start chiropractic care from scratch and your current insurer does not cover it, you take advantage of this and take out private insurance that integrates chiropractic as a health care plan for you or your family members.
