What is a Direct Care Plan and what does it cover?

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a membership program. By being a member of this program, a patient is entitled to receive the covered services as part of the membership agreement. The agreement renews on a one-month term or can be paid annually. This agreement may be terminated at any time with a 30 day notice by patient or practice. 

Services included in the DPC are: Chiropractic adjustments, neuromuscular rehabilitation, laser therapy, nerve therapy, primitive reflex assesment, child developmental assessment, and right eye assessment.

Do you accept insurance or provide super bills?

Heal Thyself Institute does not accept insurance. Due to regulations with Direct Primary Care Agreements, superbills will not be provided either. 

If I have medicare, can I still join Heal Thyself Institute?

Patients that are covered by Medicare are not allowed by federal law to enter into a direct primary care agreement with a physician for services that are covered by Medicare. If a service is not covered by Medicare, that service may be provided pursuant to a direct primary care agreement. The only chiropractic service covered by Medicare is treatment by manual manipulation of the spine to correct a subluxation, for as long as Medicare determines that further clinical improvement is reasonably expected as a result of this ongoing care.
Chiropractic maintenance therapy is not covered by Medicare.

What if I don't want to participate in a direct primary care membership?

Patitents choosing not to participate in the membership program may schedule new patient appointments as needed. 

Can I cancel or re-start my membership?

Yes. You can cancel your membership with 30 days notice.

We believe that building long term relationships with our members is the key to what we do. Therefore, please note that requests to restart memberships are subject to approval and availability. If accepted, a re-enrollment fee of $200 will apply.

Can I use my Health Savings Account to pay for Direct Primary Care?

The law currently allows the use of HSA money to pay for medications, imaging tests, labs, etc.  However, it is legally unclear if HSA funds can be used to pay for DPC membership fees. This is a question for your tax professional. Legislation has been proposed to clear up the question regarding if HSA money can be spent on a DPC clinic’s retainer or membership fee.

What if I need my package refunded

Heal Thyself Institute offers package of appointments for a discounted price. In the event part of this package needs to be refunded, it will be done so at the full price per appointment left.
