Questions about your insurance?

If you have private health insurance, let us check your insurance for you!

Most people pay just $25 to $40 per visit.

Some copays are as little as $0.

All our fees cover chiropractic care, massage, AND physical therapy modalities- most even on the same visit.

Covered by Aetna? Aetna covers almost half of our patients. Our Aetna patient’s co-pays and insurance coverage are similar to in-network Blue Cross coverage.

Have Medicare? Medicare Part B plans now cover many chiropractic modalities.

Because of current insurance changes, we provide many services for free if your insurance doesn’t cover them.

If your care doesn’t seem affordable, talk to your doctor. We’ll get you the care you need at a price you can afford.

Get Your Diagnostic Testing at Better Health Alaska
The first step to treating any patient is to diagnose the problem. In some doctors’ offices, this may entail an extra visit to a lab somewhere to get the appropriate test. Here, at Better Health Alaska, we can do most of our diagnostic testing in-house. This includes:

• X-Rays
• Nerve Conduction Studies
• Electromyography (EMG)
• Diagnostic Ultrasound
• MRI

Getting your diagnostic testing done on-site saves you time, money, and hassle.
