Do You Take My Insurance?

This video covers:

  • The difference between in-network and out-of-network care (0:27)

  • Our billing process (2:21)

  • Superbilling (3:35)

  • "What if I have an HMO provider?" (4:57)

  • "What if I have Medicare?" (5:33)

    • Please note: We unfortunately are not contracted with Medicare for the simple reason that reimbursement is so low that we could not maintain our model of care, which is to spend one full hour with each of our patients, delivering treatment from a highly specialized pelvic floor physical therapist.

    • It saddens us greatly that we are also not allowed to accept cash payments for patients with Medicare as federal law prohibits this. We are hoping the law changes soon as there’s nothing more that we love than to deliver treatment to our senior population. It upsets us to no end that this law exists, and we have tried writing letters to our Congress women and men to get this changed.

    • We have fantastic ancillary services and classes starting this month as we have been working behind the scenes to build a wellness program for patients, particularly the Medicare population, so that you can still get help via this avenue.

  • "What does this mean for me as a patient?" (5:46)


Lives Changed by our pelvic floor physical therapy programs:

 
 
As a physician practicing emergency medicine, I know what it is to save a life and I can say without exaggeration that Julie saved mine. I am forever grateful.
— S.S.
I was expecting the facility to be cold, uninviting and clinical like the many doctor offices I had been in over the last two years, but it was welcoming, comfortable and I kid you not, spa like.
— L.S.
After just 4 sessions, I feel 90% better. I will not even try to go back to my HMO.
— K.B.
 

You can also receive treatment for the comfort of your own home with online treatment.

With virtual sessions, we can set up a video chat to assess your unique case and determine the best method of treatment.
