Q: Does insurance cover Springs’ services?
A: You should check with your insurance company to find out if you have coverage for chiropractic or acupuncture. Most plans do NOT cover massage therapy at this time. You are responsible for contacting your insurance company to verify coverage & co-pay amounts and for obtaining prior authorization if required by your policy.
Acupuncture treatments for smoking cessation, weight loss, skin care, stress relief, and some other diagnoses are non-covered services by insurance companies. Full payment is expected at the time of service. Package rates are available.
Naturopathic Medicine, Hypnotherapy, Mineral Bath, & Spa services are SELF PAY.
For questions about fees or insurance coverage, please contact The Springs Operations Manager at (315) 462-1350.
|*Notice to chiropractic patients with MEDICARE: Medicare does NOT pay for a CHIROPRACTIC EXAMINATION. Coverage is only provided for a spinal adjustment. Before a chiropractic adjustment can be rendered, a chiropractic examination MUST be performed at the initial visit. Treatment fees for patients with Medicare include non-covered services. A special consent form is provided before your initial appointment explaining any non-covered treatments.|
Q: Can I use FSA or HSA funds?
A: If you participate with the Flexible Benefits plan, you may be able to use your pre-tax money contributions towards some services. For massage therapy coverage, you will need a prescription for massage from your doctor. You may use the funds for acupuncture or chiropractic. Spa services are not covered, nor are vitamins, herbs, or mineral supplements unless deemed medically necessary.
Q: If I have been in an accident or injured at work, will my auto insurance or worker’s compensation pay for treatment?
A: We do accept Worker's Compensation & No Fault injuries. For No Fault, a prescription from your physician is required for massage therapy. We do not need a prescription for acupuncture or chiropractic.You must call your insurance company to determine coverage. You must provide the prescription for massage therapy and all insurance information (name of the company, phone number, address, claim representative name) including your claim number to The Springs to obtain pre-authorization for treatment.

We will never sell your information to any third party, nor will we provide information to any other party unless required by law.

Q: Do I need a referral?
A: In most cases, you do not need a referral for services. If you wish to use Flexible Spending benefits, you will need a prescription. Check with your carrier for details. We also ask that you obtain medical clearance before receiving some treatments (ie, any complications during pregnancy).
