PATIENT RESPONSIBILITIES

Since each plan’s benefits vary, it is important that all clients contact their insurance company prior to starting physical therapy to verify their outpatient physical therapy benefits.  We will do our best to help you understand your benefits.  Since we are not your insurance company, we cannot guarantee eligibility, extent of coverage or any promise of payment by your insurance. Some insurance companies employ a "utilization review company" that control access to your benefits so you should also ask if there is a pre-authorization process required.

If you are utilizing your insurance for physical therapy services, we will collect an estimate of your patient portion at the time of service.  After each appointment, our medical billing company will submit claims on your behalf.  Claims are generated based on actual services rendered with each date of service.  Insurance companies typically take between three to six weeks to process a claim, but it is not uncommon for them to take six months or longer to process a claim.  Once a claim has been processed based on their fee schedule, we both will receive an Explanation of Benefits from your insurance company.  If you have any further financial responsibility, you will receive a bill from our billing office.

For those without health insurance or insurance that we are not contracted with, we offer competitive, discounted self-pay rates.  If you would like more information or have additional questions on our self-pay options please call us.
