Does Medical Insurance Cover Chiropractic Treatment?

The Chiropractic Center of Erie and Chiropractic Center of Longmont understands that the cost of chiropractic care can be prohibitive for some. We work to ensure that our prices remain as low as possible and that includes working with some major insurance providers. We regularly hear the question, “Does medical insurance cover chiropractic treatment?” The short answer is yes, but there’s more to learn. Each insurance provider treats chiropractic care differently depending on your insurance plan. Learn about some of the more common ways insurances cover chiropractic treatment below.


Chiropractic treatment offers an alternative to medication or procedures and increases in popularity year-after-year. This means many insurance companies cover chiropractic care as part of what they call “alternative” care. We believe that most medical procedures should be alternatives to natural, holistic approaches such as chiropractic treatment, instead of the other way around. As a result of being labeled as alternative care, however, many insurance companies place certain restrictions on what they will cover. Our team outlined common restrictions below, however, we recommend reviewing your policy in-depth to learn your specific restrictions. As always, if you have any questions relating to your specific coverage and how we can maximize your medical benefits, give us a call at 303-828-3000 in Erie or 303-772-1950 in Longmont, CO.


Many Insurance Plans Require A General Doctor to Refer Patients to Chiropractic Care

These insurance plans require patients get a referral from their general practitioner or a specialist prior to paying for any chiropractic treatment.

Insurance Plans Often Set a Cap on How Many Times a Patient Can See a Chiropractor in a Month or Year

For these insurance plans, the providers restrict the number of visits a patient can use for chiropractic care. These providers enforce these restrictions on a per month or per year basis and won’t pay for visits outside of the cap set for the time period. Our staff recommends calling your insurance company in addition to us verifying your benefits as occasionally the insurance website doesn’t always detail the specifics of your policy.

Some Insurance Plans May Stop Covering Chiropractic Care If Your Treatment Hits a Plateau

This happens when your insurance plan authorizes chiropractic care for the treatment of a specific ailment, but not for “maintenance” or “long-term” care. These plans highlight the reason to select a chiropractor that has a proven track record of helping patients through recovery and rehabilitation. The Chiropractic Center of Erie and Chiropractic Center of Longmont focus on healing the patients quickly and effectively with our award-winning treatment process.


While chiropractic treatment is shown as the most effective treatment for many musculoskeletal ailments and thus increases in popularity throughout the United States, some insurance companies still don’t cover chiropractic care. In these instances, patients may cover their costs for treatment out of their own pocket. Many patients still prefer to pay out-of-pocket for chiropractic care due to the effectiveness of the treatment options. In these circumstances, it is even more critical to select a chiropractor that focuses on healing patients quickly and effectively like our doctors.


Both the Chiropractic Center of Erie and Chiropractic Center of Longmont accept the same types of insurances. We currently accept plans from Aetna, United Health Care, Blue Cross / Blue Shield, Cigna, plus other plans.

Introducing Chiro Connection


Welcome to the newest section on our website! The Chiropractic Centers of Erie and Longmont are proud to present our newest service to our patients and the community at large. Even better news, this section and all of the information shared within are free of charge. One of the best things about serving our patients is the great conversations we get to be a part of every day. We get asked many questions, share plenty of stories, and most importantly help our patients get the relief they need to live healthier and happier lives.


We have been so blessed over the last 30 years to share these conversations with individual patients who we’ve grown to think of as friends and extended families. We truly love being a part of the Erie and Longmont communities and the sense of neighborly belonging. We decided it was a great time to share some knowledge, company updates, and health tips that we just don’t have time to share with everyone individually during our treatments.


We encourage patients to share this content far and wide across social channels, email, and any other way they can to help us spread these tips to as many people as possible. While we definitely hope to grow both practices through the topics in this section, the main goal is to better serve our patients and our communities, as always. Please share topic suggestions with us that you’d like to learn more about and engage with us on Facebook where we will be posting regular articles.
