Payment Options

Our goal is to make our care available to as many people as possible. We believe in the value of wellness care for you and your family and have maintained a pricing structure that allows care for all budgets. Listed below are a few options.


Cash patients generally pay for services at the time or before they receive them and in return receive a discounted rate. Acceptable forms of payment include: personal check, Visa/MasterCard/Discover/American Express, money order, and of course cash. We diligently try to keep this rate low enough that those without insurance, those with insurance but little or no chiropractic coverage, and those with high deductible insurance can still gain access to care.
  • First Visit/New Patient visit - $80
  • Follow up visits - $45
  • Student Discount Initial Visit (with valid student ID)- $60
  • Student Discount Follow-up Visit (with valid student ID)- $30
  • Sports Physical (no insurance accepted)- $25


  We are happy to submit claims to your health or auto insurance company for payment as a service free of charge. As a courtesy to you, we will also make a detailed check of your insurance coverages at the beginning of care in order to advise you on your options. We also recommend you check your coverage as well anytime there are changes to your policy. We do our best to make sure we are In Network providers for as many health insurance companies as possible. If we are not In Network we will check with your carrier to see what Out of Network benefits your policy has. Below is a list of some of the companies we have current contracts with. This is not meant to be comprehensive or a guarantee of coverage. If you are unsure if your plan has chiropractic coverage or if Dr. Bonilla is a provider, feel free to call our office so we can check for you. The doctor is listed as Erika Bonilla, D.C.

Plus- your plan may include out of network benefits that may pay for a portion of your care.


  If you have standard Medicare coverage it will cover your chiropractic adjustments at a portion of their allowable charges. This means you will have a co-insurance of between $5 and $8 dollars. Medicare does not pay for the initial evaluation and any X-rays that we take even though these are requirements for care under Medicare. If you have a secondary they may or may not pick up the remaining portion depending on the plan. It may be necessary to check with your secondary to confirm what they will pay. If you have a Medicare plan that required you to turn over your benefits to a third party (like SCAN or Secure Horizons) it is up to that specific company whether they will pay for chiropractic care. We are of course happy to help you navigate the process and facilitate you getting the care you need when you need it. We love our Medicare patients and continue to take them on as other doctors continually drop out as preferred providers because the compensation is less than other insurances. We know the process can seem complex, but we will do our best to make it an easy process for you.


  Tri-Care is the insurance for members of the Military and their families. At this time Tri-Care does not cover chiropractic. Because of this fact, and our desire to show our appreciation to the members of the armed forces, we have a special that we extend only to active duty members of the military and their families. This includes the initial evaluation for $20 and treatments for $25. We find this has allowed us to treat many of our neighbors from Camp Pendleton and beyond.

Workers Compensation / Personal Injury

  We also accept auto accident and workers compensation cases when prior approval from the insurance carrier has been obtained.

My Story

"I first knew I wanted to be a chiropractor, after my brother introduced me to one he was seeing for his work injury. I knew nothing about chiropractors at the time. After years of high school and college sports, this chiropractor introduced me to ways of living without the pain I felt on a daily basis. Chiropractic care opened my eyes ...
