Is Chiropractic Care Expensive?

For patients not covered by health insurance, a laminectomy, typically used to treat spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spine that occurs mostly in people over 50, typically costs $50,000 to$90,000.
For patients not covered by health insurance, spinal fusion, typically used to treat conditions such as a slipped vertebra, fractured vertebra or other spinal instability, typically costs$80,000 to $150,000 or more; a surgery in which high-end titanium implants are used instead typically will fall on the higher end.
Back surgery is covered by most health insurance plans if ordered by a doctor. According to eSpine.com, the website of a Los Angeles back surgeon, most insurance plans will cover spinal surgery. Medicare generally covers back surgery.
For patients covered by insurance, assuming the deductible has been met, typical out-of-pocket costs would consist of coinsurance of between 10 and 40 percent of the procedure, for a total of $200 to $2,000 or more, up to the yearly out-of-pocket maximum.
