While we do see a number of people with different insurance plans, we are considered an out-of- network provider. This means that insurance is not accepted directly and payment is due at the time of service. We understand that most patients do rely on receiving insurance reimbursement. We will provide a receipt for you along with a list of the treatments performed and the payment amount that was given. This receipt can be mailed to your insurance to help receive the maximum reimbursement available. In most cases we will mail the receipt on your behalf to the insurance company, however pending patient volume this is not always a guarantee. You may be expected to mail the receipts and necessary paperwork to the insurance company yourself. Patients are advised to contact their insurance companies to find out what their benefits are for outpatient out-of-network physical therapy visits before their first visit. We provide an insurance benefits worksheet on line under patient forms that may help you to determine these benefits when talking with your insurance company. We accept payment in the form of cash or credit card/debit card/health care spending account, etc. We are unable to treat Medicare patients at this time due to government regulations that restrict us from taking cash payments from Medicare beneficiaries. We hope this will change in the future.
Unfortunately many insurance companies are reimbursing less and less while enforcing more restrictions on the type treatments and number of visits that are allowed. Many physical therapy clinics in order to stay afloat are having to see many patients a day, in some cases overlapping care and seeing patients every 15-30 minutes to be productive. As a therapist who has experienced this first hand in the past, it can be extremely hard to give the care patients deserve under these circumstances. Diagnoses related to women’s health in particular demand more one-on-one time as well as our full attention. Our clinic prides itself in that we want to provide the best care possible without the interference of insurance companies calling the shots. We believe that as an out-of-network provider we will be able to provide this care while keeping the focus directly on the patient instead of the numbers at the end of the day.

Each visit is individualized for each patient depending on what the specific needs are. For example if someone is referred for stress incontinence, we can provide treatment in most cases in a 45 minute block. Someone with pelvic pain will require more manual therapy and other interventions, in most cases requiring an hour treatment.

  • Sessions are scheduled between 45 and 60 minutes, price ranges from $87 to $116 depending on prescribed plan of care.
  • For those with lymphedema who require more visits during the week, we do offer a 30 minute session for just the bandaging component for $58. It is recommended however that the manual lymph drainage component of treatment be performed most of the time for better outcomes.
While we are not required by state law to have a prescription for the initial evaluation, due to the specialty of services we provide it is highly recommended that you do obtain one. In cases of pregnancy, pelvic pain, or history of cancer we will request one. We want to make sure there are no contraindications to treatment so we can provide our care in a safe and appropriate manner. By keeping communication open with your referring provider we can ensure we are providing the best care possible. Some insurance companies require a prescription in order to reimburse for physical therapy services. After 24 days from the initial evaluation date, we are required to have a prescription to continue care. Providers we are allowed to take referrals from include a physician, podiatrist, psychologist, chiropractor, dentist, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant.
Most initial evaluations are between 75 and 90 minutes long. We request that you complete as much of the patient forms that are available on our website and bring them with you to your appointment. This way most of the time we have scheduled for you will be spent with you directly versus filling out paperwork. A complete medical history will be taken along with a review of current symptoms. After taking the history, the physical therapist will then perform a thorough musculoskeletal examination. If you are being seen for a pelvic floor related diagnosis the therapist will also in most cases perform an internal assessment. You are welcome to bring a second person with you into the examination room during the examination and subsequent treatments. We will discuss the physical findings and together set up a plan of care with your personal goals in mind. Please bring comfortable clothes to change into for exercises.
