CSCE members are encouraged to bill for their independent assessments at an hourly rate. Billing rate should be based on the Recommended Fee Schedule issued by their professional association. The hourly rate for independent chiropractic evaluations, for example, may vary from $200 to $250 per hour (e.g., Ontario Chiropractic Association - June 1997) depending on the chiropractor's level of expertise.

Typically, an independent chiropractic evaluation and report requires between two to three hours to complete. The level of complexity of the case and the amount of documentation to review may require more time to complete. Fee estimates of the evaluation can be provided upon request to the CSCE member.
