How Does a Motor Vehicle Accident Appointment Work?
A question we are frequently asked at Wilbeck Chiropractic is, “Do we offer treatments for car accident-related injuries or how does a motor vehicle accident appointment work?” The answer to the first part of this question is, yes. At Wilbeck Chiropractic we offer top rated Car Accident Care that is safe, natural, and non-invasive.
With regards to how our motor vehicle accident appointments work, these appointments are like our normal chiropractic evaluations in that we conduct a full exam with digital x-rays if necessary, discussing, and diagnosing pain in the areas affected. The difference between this type of care and our normal wellness or pain treatments is that our Doctors will want to spend extra time evaluating the neck area due to the possibility of trauma caused by whiplash.
It’s Important that You Are Evaluated After a Car Accident Regardless of the Severity
Studies have shown that even a minor or low impact car accident occurring at speeds of 5 to 10 miles per hour can cause significant injuries or trauma to the neck or spine and can even have prolonged effects on the body if left untreated. Now imagine the damage a major car accident can have on the neck or spine, these types of injuries should not be taken lightly and should be assessed and treated as quickly as possible.
Wilbeck Chiropractic encourages anyone who has recently been involved in a car accident to schedule an appointment with our team of expert Board-Certified Doctors of Chiropractic for a spinal evaluation.
Kansas State Law Requires Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
Whether you are at fault, or another driver is at fault. Kansas State law requires insurance providers to include personal injury protection or PIP in their policies.
Every motorist who is insured is allotted an amount of PIP coverage; and depending on your insurance plan or provider, the majority of the time patients can have their entire treatment cost covered by their personal injury protection.
Every case is different, but the vast majority of insured patients with car accident-related treatment costs are covered to a significant degree; and a lot of patients pay no out of pocket expenses. Wilbeck Chiropractic’s caring staff works closely with patients and their insurance providers, every step of the way, to determine PIP coverage and ensure that patients are not over paying for care.
If a patient’s car accident care treatments are being covered by funds awarded from a lawsuit, our front office team will work with the patient’s legal representation to ensure all allowed treatment(s) are available to the patient and that treatments are fully paid for by the car accident personal injury lawsuit compensation.
If you are not covered by PIP Wilbeck Chiropractic will work with your insurance provider to explore the most cost-effective way for you to receive treatment. If you are not insured or your insurance won’t cover your treatment our clinic also offers affordable payment plans that can be broken up with zero interest or added fees. It is our goal for patients to focus on their healing and wellness vs. stressing over immediate payment.
