I do not accept any insurance, because I work for YOU, not an insurance company. Insurance companies can dictate the type of treatment that is performed and what they deem “necessary” even though they are not medical professionals and, more importantly, don’t know your story. Insurance companies also have strict rules of “treating one body part” but you will always be treated as a full person here, as your whole body is interconnected.
HOWEVER, I am happy to provide you a superbill for each session. A superbill is a special receipt you can submit to your insurance company and they may reimburse a percentage of your cost. I cannot guarantee payment, but typically at the very least the cost will go toward your deductible.
Need more reasons to come to a cash-pay clinic? At a traditional physical therapy clinic, you may see the actual therapist for 15-30 minutes, which does not give you the same amount of personalized care as 60 minutes sessions. Furthermore, when working through insurance, many people have a copay of $30-$50 each treatment session. Patients are often treated 2-3x/week, which could potentially add up to $150/week out of pocket – more than what I charge for personalized treatment. You also don’t have to worry about extra cost if you have not yet met your deductible.
I will always treat you one-on-one for at least one hour sessions. You will not be “handed off” to a tech or an assistant and I will not waste your time with things you can do independently at home. With the type of treatment methods I use, I do not need to see patients more than 1x/week. And you can take an active role in deciding the frequency that works for you, your condition, your budget, and your lifestyle. I don’t agree with “surprise bills.” I want you to know what you are paying up front! I believe in fee-for-service and want transparent costs – there will never be any hidden fees.
