Benessere Chiropractic does not accept assignment from Medicare. Dr. Osterlitz and Dr. Guthrie are both a Non-Participating provider of Medicare. Patients will be asked to pay the charges in full at the time of visit. Medicare will commonly send payment directly to the patient. We are required by law to bill Medicare for Chiropractic services to those who are eligible. Medicare does not pay for supplements, supplies, physical therapy modalities, and other non-Chiropractic services. Patients will be asked to pay for these services/supplies at the time they are rendered. If a patient has a supplemental insurance policy that covers Chiropractic care, we will bill them in the absence of coverage or if Medicare denies payment. Please keep in mind that all Medicare supplements follow guidelines set by Medicare.
