New Beginnings Myofascial Therapy does not bill directly or contract with insurance companies. Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in part for “out of network” physical therapy benefits. You may turn in the claims yourself.
Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for out of network physical therapy services.
I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:
- Do I have a separate out of network deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
- Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
- Do I need written approval or referral orders from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
Why I don’t do direct insurance contract / billing
My program is geared toward spending the whole session hands on and one on one. Many clinics that do insurance billing have 2-3 or more clients at one time with each therapist working out on different pieces of equipment, or they are using support staff for portions of the treatment time. Many clients have told me that when they went to insurance billing PT clinics, they did not get more than 10-15 minutes hands on time with their physical therapist, and had less than ideal results. This is how these clinics are able to bill insurance, take only what insurance pays, and cover the costs involved with billing and collections. I believe that clients deserve and do best with a 1-1 hands on experience. I have noticed that they require fewer visits, make improvements faster, and understand their home program routines better. I focus on teaching you what to do in order to empower you in your own healing. I work with you in a full body way to bring your whole body back into balance (sometimes billing insurance means PT treatment is limited to only the direct area of pain that is on the Dr. order). This is why I have made the commitment to work one on one with my clients and give the best care possible.
You are getting a licensed physical therapist with 24 years experience, with advanced level John Barnes myofascial release hands on skills 100% of each session. Many people now have super high out of network deductibles ($2000 or more), or no insurance coverage at all. This means most of the PT treatment is paid in cash before the deductible is met. When clients pay cash at a clinic that does bill through insurance contracts, they may be paying more than what I charge per visit until their deductible is met. If you are going to have to pay cash anyway, would you rather pay for 10 minutes of hands on physical therapist time and the majority of your visits on machines or with support staff? Wouldn’t you rather have 45-60 minutes of hands on time with your physical therapist and the time and attention needed to help you heal faster?
I accept cash, credit card, & check as forms of payment. Some health insurance spending accounts have debit cards I can take, contact your health insurance provider for details on how to use your health spending account for physical therapy and wellness services.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session.
