What about insurance?

What Insurances do you take?

I am “In Net-work ” for Medicare, Anthem and Blue Shield of California and “Out of Network” for all other insurances.

What does that mean?

I charge a flat fee for service. I do not charge your insurance and do not take co-pays, which allows me to charge a realistic price (1/2-2/3rds of the local area price). I do this because there are many people with high-deductibles and co-pays. Insurance companies also often dictate what services they are willing to cover, which can limit some treatment options. I believe that you will get the most out of your therapy with this private-session fee-based service.

What if you have insurance?

Call your insurance company and ask about your “Out of Network” benefits prior to your first visit if you plan on submitting a claim to your insurance. Some insurance companies have separate “In network” and “out of network” deductibles. I am not legally able to see self-paying Medicare patients for Physical Therapy, but can see patients for Wellness as Medicare does not cover these services.

How do I get reimbursed?

Check out your policy to see if they allow “Out of Network” coverage. I will provide you with any paperwork and the proper codes necessary, but you will need to send it in. The insurance companies will pay you directly any money. They do not pay me, as I have already received payment.

Does insurance cover Wellness

No, sadly.  I am able to see you for non-medical  Wellness Services since Medicare does not cover those.

Cancellation/ No show fee

You get one “Get out of jail free” card because I understand that life happens. After that, a $50.00 fee will be applied if canceled less than 24 hours or a client fails to attend a scheduled appointment.
