American Specialty Health Complaints & Reviews

American Specialty Healthhealthcare

American Specialty Health also is known as "ASH", is a huge scam to patients and providers. Before they took over chiropractic and acupuncture benefits for part of Blue Cross, Cigna, Aetna, Healthnet, Kaiser Permanente...you name it.

Healthcare providers used to get an average of $80 per office visit and treatment for acupuncture. After ASH took over, it became $41 minus the patient's copay. Which means if the copay is $10, providers will get paid $31 in total for the office visit and treatment and they require providers to submit medical records every 5th visit. More than 50% pay cut and more paperwork to do!
Actually, patients are still paying the same price for their insurance before, whether they pay a couple hundred dollars per month or otherwise.

Now, some very simple question arises; "Where did the pay cut money go?" "Did ASH took $40 out of the provider's paycheck while all they do is administrative work for the main insurance company?"

Numerous of Chiropractors and Acupuncturists had to close their office due to this change. Providers had to stop taking insurances that are affiliating with ASH or, they won't even have enough money to pay the office staff.
But now that ASH is dominating across mayor insurances, providers don't have a choice but accept the pay cut and working extensive hours just trying to meet ends, because almost all the major insurances are affiliating with ASH now. This is directly affecting the ability to provide quality service to patients.
ASH is abusing the rights of patients and providers, they are taking away the chance of using the best alternative for replacing narcotics from patients.

The existence of ASH is only for saving money for the affiliated insurance companies and is solely toxic and abusive for patients and providers.

Dear patients and providers, we need to stand up and speak up to stop this unethical matter.
