Pricing and Billing Structure

Dr. Hennenhoefer Osteopathic Musculoskeletal Medicine Office in Chapel Hill NCDr. Hennenhoefer does not participate with any insurances. He strongly believes that medical care should be between patients and their physicians without third-party involvement dictating how care is provided. We use a fee-for-service structure, where patients will pay for treatment at the time of visit. After treatment, Dr. Hennenhoefer can then provide patients with a “super bill.” Super bills outline what was done at your visit and can then be submitted to your insurance company for potential, partial-to-full reimbursement. While the majority of insurances cover OMT and musculoskeletal care, it is up to patients to contact their insurance company to determine what would be reimbursed should they submit a super bill from our office. Musculoskeletal medicine is also eligible for reimbursement through most HSAs and FSAs.

How to Submit a Claim to Your Health Insurance Company

Dr. Hennenhoefer will primarily treat your complaint with hands-on manipulation; however, he may also recommend adjunct treatments such as joint injections, dry needling, prolotherapy, or home exercise programs. Because cost should not determine if patients receive the needed, appropriate treatments, your visit fee will cover all provided treatments. This means that it will be the same price whether you require only osteopathic manipulative treatment, or whether you also need several other types of treatment during your visit. There is no additional cost for joint injections, needling, prolotherapy, etc.

The standard visit fee is $149/visit. If you are a student or military, please inquire about a discounted price. For the purpose of estimating total cost, the average patient will require 3-4 visits. These visits are often spread 2-4 weeks apart. Fewer required visits spread farther apart often makes the overall cost of treatment less than physical therapy, chiropractic, and other non-medical bodywork.

If you believe seeing a musculoskeletal specialist would be beneficial, but feel you will be unable to pay the standard visit fee, please contact our office at (919) 706-1806, and we will do our best to work with you to provide you the care you need.
