Lets address the 🐘 in the room
One of the most common questions that we get is “do you take my insurance?’
There are a few ways we could answer this but the short answer is no. However, we can provide you with a receipt so that you can file with your insurance to get reimbursement (depending on your insurance benefits).
There is a good reason why we do this! 💯
You see, as hard as it is to accept, insurance companies aren’t worried about you, they are worried about their bottom line. And as we trudge along here, reimbursements continue to go down while co-payments are going up.
So what does this mean for you, the patient? It means that clinics are overcoming this by having their therapists see more and more patients every day to keep their revenue steady. And then you will be asked to come back multiple times per week so they can get the most out of your insurance plan.
This means that therapists aren’t focused on you. They are taking care of multiple patients at once and trying their best to keep their head above water. They can only tread for so long before they start to feel overwhelmed and burnt out. So then you get pushed off to an assistant or tech but still pay the same price like you were working with a Doctor of Physical Therapy. 🤔
Doesn’t sound ideal, does it? You’re wasting your money to get subpar care. And it’s not the therapists fault, the system has forced their clinics into a tough situation.
THIS is why we are a cash-bashed practice. We work for YOU! Not insurance companies. YOU determine the course of care, not some guy sitting at a desk at corporate in NYC.
