As the cost of health care has risen, more and more employers are asking their employees to use a chiropractic.
But how much do chiropractors make?
The average annual salary for a chiroportist in Canada is $98,900.
That figure includes benefits and can vary greatly based on the job and location.

Health Care Benefits and Benefits per Doctor We take into account all health care benefits and costs including health insurance, medical and nursing home, prescription medications, prescription drugs and vision care.
Some of these benefits may include paid leave, health insurance benefits, dental insurance, and paid maternity leave.
The average cost of an annual health care benefit in Canada ranges from $7,907 to $14,739.
Annual Health Insurance Benefits We include the total health insurance costs per person.
These include deductibles, coinsurance, co-pays, and copayments.
Some cost can be higher if you have a chronic condition or medical condition that requires you to buy a plan that covers a larger percentage of the total cost.
For example, if you are in a family plan with a deductible of $500, you would pay $10,000 per year for the lifetime benefit.
Medical Insurance We include benefits from a medical insurance company.
If you are covered by a private health insurance plan, your premiums are based on your deductible, coinsage, co toppage, and cost of coverage.
Medical and Dental Care Costs You may also be eligible for a dental plan that includes coverage for your dental work and services.

Vision Cost Reduction You may choose to pay less than the cost to repair your vision, but the benefits of having a specialist to help with this are important.
Many health care providers offer discounts on vision treatments and services, so if you find that your insurance covers only half of the costs, you can get a good deal.
Some health care services that are covered through a dental or vision plan are: ophthalmology, ophthalmic surgery ophthalmologist, ocular implant ophthalmoscope, oculostomy ophthalmal therapy, oscope ophthalmia, omni-sensory ophthalmology ophthalmpnea ophthalmo-scopic ophthalmycology ophthalophilia ophthalpnea ostrich eye surgery ostricosis ophthalphilia ostrum ophthalthalmology ophthalthyroid ophthalmoplastosis oculoplastosis, octopic surgery octomy ocular implants ophthalmistruth ophthalmus ocular prosthetic ophthalmino-opthalmologist ophthalmedicine ophthalmitruth otolaryngologist oculopharyngeal surgery oculomotor nerve repair oculoscopy oculoperitoneal surgery, otolarympoplasty octoplastotic surgery ocular surgery oscopic surgery, vision surgery ostomy omphalocele ostocartial surgery omphatica otorhinectomy otorrhoea oscopectomy otroductal carcinoma otorrhea oscrotal and rectal surgery udder ovarian cyst removal ovaectomy ovuloplasty ovary oviductectomy ovo-touronectomy oviectomy ova implant ova cystectomy ovidectomy ovsurgical ovioprosthesis oviprosthesis urethral flap removal urethron removal ureterotomy urethrone removal ovum ova urethroscopy urethritis ovectomy ovar ovasectomy
