We will not be accepting new patients from United Healthcare, effective January 1, 2019. Except for current United Healthcare patients we are an out of network provider. We will continue to submit routine claims to your insurance, however we will not conduct any business with fourth parties including Managed Care Organizations.
COMMERCIAL INSURANCE LIMITS ON PHYSICAL THERAPY SERVICES: Commercial Medical Insurance plans often limit how much they pay for your medically necessary outpatient therapy services in one calendar year. These limits may be based on numbers of visits or dollar amount. Individual plans vary, so it is best to consult your individual plan to verify your benefits. Typically after you meet your deductible the insurer pays its share (60-80%) and you pay your share (20-40%). These figures are typical in our region and are subject to change each calendar year. Medically Necessary means that the skills of a therapist are needed to safely and effectively furnish a recognized therapy service whose goal is improvement of an impairment or functional limitation. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO RECOGNIZE NOT ALL CONDITIONS MEET THE INSURANCE PROVIDERS DEFINITION OF MEDICALLY NECESSARY.
We remain one of the few clinicians in the area to offer treatment with a Class 3 Cold LASER and we remain one of the only providers in the area to schedule one patient per hour with one to one care by a Board Certified Physical Therapist.
