I would like to extend an invitation to everyone out there reading these blogs to inform you of an important situation that insurance companies put us in every now and again.
This office has been happily treating many employees of Verizon Wireless (also based in Dublin, Ohio) and those patients are very satisfied with their care. They express their satisfaction by referring OTHER Verizon Wireless employees. So a large percentage of the patients we treat each week are these employees. And they're happy because we are able to accept their health insurance. But Verizon Wireless made an executive decision to swich insurance carriers for their employees so as of 1/1/2010, those employees will no longer be able to have their insurance benefits accepted here. And the reason for this is because Anthem's Managed Care Network is CLOSED to chiropractors stating there are enough "providers in this geographic location" (meaning Dublin). But what about the freedom to CHOOSE your own chiropractor. Not one of the 5 that are listed for Dublin.
So I have started two (2) petitions to help this office get credentialed with Anthem's Managed Care Network. I would love for you to take a moment to read the petition and sign it, REGARDLESS of whether you have Anthem as your health insurance. This isn't an insurance fight, it's a matter of giving employees a CHOICE to their own healthcare providers.
If you are an employee of Verizon Wireless or it's affiliations, please click here to sign the petition: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/dublinfamilychiropractic
If you have Anthem (or any Blue Cross/Blue Shield) Insurance, or if you would like to see changes made to this policy, please click here to sign the petition: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/dublinfamilychiropractic1/
Thank you for your time today!
