All You Can Eat Chiropractic

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on August 10, 2010

Have you noticed the number of all-you-can-eat restaurants popping up all over the place?  You’d think the quality of food would be (let’s say) lacking.  In most places, though, the quality of food is pretty good while staying fresh and hot.  Oh yeah, those places always seem to be busy!

What would happen if your chiropractor (or other healthcare provider) offered a limited number of services and a reasonable (even low) price for unlimited care?  Here’s what.  You’d get better, more focused care in less time at a great value.  The other thing that would happen is that you’d see your chiropractor more often because you CAN!  Oh yeah, you’d experience the long-term benefits of regular adjustments, too!

It’s time for chiropractors (and ALL health providers) to take a second look at how they offer their services and be more transparent with their clientele.  The day of hiding behind their white coat and insurance reimbursement are all but gone.  Adapt or die.

    The unlimited care at a fixed fee is not a new idea. However due to insurance laws governing that work at least in part under a third party payor system, it’s a dangerous thing to do. Offering an “all you can eat” program opens the door to being accused of acting as an insurance company, which is not legal. There are probably loopholes, I’m sure.

      Thanks, Steve. I’ve heard that objection for years. However given the state of healthcare, it makes no sense to keep doctors from offering consumers a better value. Plus, the concept has been tested in many states to be valid and legal. Thanks for stopping by.
