What’s Happening at Body Logic: September 2020

Best Wishes, Dr. Matt!

It is with appreciation and gratitude that we said farewell to Dr. Matt on August 21, 2020.  Click here to read a letter from Dr. Matt to his Body Logic community of staff and patients.

Dr. Amanda and Dr. Scott will be taking over Dr. Matt’s patients’ care as Body Logic adapts to only having two doctors.  We plan to hire another doctor in the future, but will not be rushing the process.  We want to ensure we find the best fit for our office culture and our patients’ needs.  Given the quick transition and the challenge of having school-age children, Dr. Amanda and Dr. Scott are doing their best to accommodate patient hours of availability.  We will keep you informed of any schedule changes and/or increased availability as we progress into the fall.  Please let us know if you have any specific needs and we will do our best to meet them!

If you are unable to get a chiropractic appointment as quickly as desired, we encourage you to schedule a massage with our amazing team of massage therapists.  Click here to read about the different massage types available.  And see below for special pricing through the month of September!

Please Continue Protecting Each Other During the Pandemic

We empathize with our Virginia Beach community as we have all felt challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Who knew it would last this long?!  Regardless, it remains the utmost importance that we keep our patients, clients, and staff safe and healthy.  We will continue asking questions regarding your health and any potential concern for contact with someone that had a positive COVID-19 test since your last entry into the office. Body Logic requires all staff and patrons to utilize face coverings as stated in Executive Order 63 that remains in effect for Virginia.

Please note, Body Logic is a healthcare facility that provides care to many people with a variety of health conditions.  We ask you to understand that some patients have health conditions that are negatively impacted by wearing a face covering and, therefore, are not required to as per Executive Order 63.  Body Logic does not discriminate against nor neglect care for a patients that fall into this category.  Our sanitary practices are within CDC standards and we care about your health.  We understand and respect if you make the choice not to enter our facility based on the possibility that someone may not have a face covering.  Only you can determine your personal preference and level of risk of exposure.  Stop the spread.  Wear a mask.  And please be respectful of each other.

What Happens If I’m in a Motor Vehicle Accident- Part 2

Where do I begin?

It happened.  The first step is to talk to the auto insurance company.  If you plan to utilize coverage for your medical bills related to the accident, you must create a claim.

If you are at-fault for the accident, it is important to find out if you have bodily injury coverage through your own insurance. Please note, coverage for medical care for the at-fault driver is not standard on an insurance policy.  We encourage everyone to review their policies to ensure the driver is protected and has coverage.

If the other party is at-fault, you need to acquire their insurance information.  Call and find out if a claim has already been filed or if you need to create one.  If the other driver does not have insurance, contact your auto insurance company.

 

Schedule an appointment.

If you are new to Body Logic or have not received care in the last 6-12 months, you will need to schedule a new patient appointment.  Please inform our receptionist that the reason you are seeking care is because of a motor vehicle accident.  We will provide instructions to help you be prepared for your upcoming appointment.

If you are a current patient at Body Logic, call and inform our office of the accident before your next appointment.  Our doctors need enough time in the first appointment after the accident to perform an examination.  We want to ensure you receive the necessary attention.  And we do not want to disrupt other patients’ care.

After you have scheduled an appointment, we will email you a link to fill out an intake form.  There are special instructions to ensure the intake form is filled out properly for an auto-injury.  Following these instructions is essential for us to collect the appropriate information to best support your case.

 

What information do I need ready to provide?

We understand it can be overwhelming after being in a car accident.  Providing as much information as possible will help the process go smoothly.  The following information is needed for our office to file your medical bills properly:

  • Auto insurance information of the party responsible for paying your medical bills
  • Claim number
  • Claim adjuster’s name and contact information
  • Attorney’s name and contact information, if legal action is being taken
  • Health insurance information
    • If Body Logic is in-network with your health insurance, we are required to file claims through them first.

 

What paperwork do I need to fill out?

Once at the office for your appointment, there are a handful of additional forms that need to be completed.  Please allot an extra 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to complete the following paperwork:

  • Motor Vehicle Accident Information Form
  • Authorization Request to Receive and Release Records
  • Patient Record Access Permission
  • Consent to Treatment
  • Financial Policy Agreement
  • Irrevocable Lien
  • Assignment of Benefits
  • HIPAA Notice of Privacy

 

Start Feeling Better!

Once the initial examination and paperwork is completed, it’s time to focus on you!  The doctors will create a treatment plan tailored to your personal condition and situation.  Treatment will include a number of different modalities, such as electrical muscle stimulation or stretches and exercises, and adjustments.  Appointment frequency is based on the doctors recommendations.  Periodically, a progress examination will be performed.  The assessment provides objective information regarding your condition and the progress of healing.  This takes time.  Refer to the prior motor vehicle accident article to review the stages of healing after trauma.  We will work together as a team to provide the best care possible as your body heals.   It is our goal to reduce pain and restore function to the body.

Now What?

Once your body has reached what’s called “maximum clinical improvement” treatment ends- related to the motor vehicle accident.  The doctors complete and compile all the clinical notes related to your case.  The additional paperwork is gathered and an invoice is printed.  The paperwork is then forwarded to either your attorney, if there is litigation involved, or the insurance company responsible for paying.  And we wait for the claim to be processed.

Whether or not you were a patient prior to the accident, we always recommend you continue with chiropractic care to maintain your spinal health and integrity.  Just like going to the dentist to ensure your teeth are healthy, visiting your chiropractor to ensure your spine is healthy is important for overall health.  At Body Logic, we enjoy long-term relationships with our patients to help them move better, feel better, and live better!
