If you agree, you will receive your first treatment on this day. It is a good idea to bring your spouse or significant other to this visit.

Answers to The Most Frequently Asked Questions

We are “in-network” for Blue Shield PPO and United Healthcare PPO. But we do accept all other PPO insurances that are considered “out-of-network” for us (Blue Cross, Aetna, Cigna, Principal Life, Health Net, etc.). Your health savings account and health flex spending account can be used for treatment in our office.

Let us check your benefits! Please provide us with your member id#, group#, your insurance’s provider telephone number or customer service number , your full name and date of birth. If your spouse is the insured party, we will need his or her name and date of birth. Whether you have a deductible to fulfill or simply a co-pay, we can verify that information for you before you come into the office.

Cash patients are always welcome in our office. Patients who don’t have insurance can take advantage of our Cash Discount Plans. Those plans offer discounts that include free visits or a percentage reduction of the regular fees.

Call your insurance agent and ask if you have Medpay (aka: Medical Payments coverage) included with your personal auto insurance. Medpay allows you to get treatment with no out of pocket cost. The Medpay amount is the amount available to cover your medical and chiropractic expenses directly. We do all the billing.In other cases where Medpay is not available (and the other driver is at fault), typically you will need to pay the doctor up front for all your treatment (or you can use your health insurance). Then you will be reimbursed by the insurance company who is representing the person at fault (this process occurs at the end of your case). If you have legal representation, Dr. Strauss may choose to accept a lien.

Each case is different. We suggest you start off with a 30 minute no-charge consultation. Dr. Strauss will review your case and determine if we can treat you on a lien.

During the initial appointment, Dr. Strauss will determine if x-rays are necessary for your case. If so, we will refer you to a local radiology center for x-rays. If you had x-rays done recently with another chiropractor, doctor or facility, with your permission we can request that they be transferred to our office for use on your case.
