Financial Policies


The Shaw Chiropractic Group offices DO NOT participate as panel providers with any managed care organization (MCO). With the exception of most approved Workers Compensation panels, which we have carefully scrutinized, we have withdrawn our participation as in-plan providers in the group health MCOs.

As a practicing physician you are experiencing the financial constraints which have been placed on your practice and your patients. You have been forced to offer your patient the least possible care necessary to maintain their health and keep in good standing with the MCOs. You are conservative with your specialty referrals and orders for sophisticated imaging studies because you are aware that when these services are ordered they become part of your provider profile. Providers with high rates of referral are not appreciated in the managed care environment.

Having directed the Shaw Chiropractic Group practices towards the management of traumatic injuries we have found ourselves in the position whereby we cannot ethically serve our patient’s rehabilitation needs and at the same time provide care consistent with the extraordinary limitations of a managed care environment. The minimal care offered by MCOs is inconsistent with our patient’s needs. Fortunately, many of our patient have concomitant litigation which allows for a third party source of full payment. Unlike most providers, we have been fortunate to survive and thrive outside the managed care world
