What does Healthcare Reform mean to Physical Therapy?
Over the last couple of months we have gotten a lot of questions regarding, “What does Healthcare Reform mean to my physical therapy care starting in 2014?” We know it can be confusing, and we can’t speak for other physical therapy practices but here is what Petersen Carling Physical Therapy will be doing into 2014.
- We will be taking all insurance plans that we accepted in 2013. So you will not see any changes there. If we took your insurance before, we will continue to be able to work with it in 2014.
- We are one of the more comprehensive insurance in-network providers and are continuously adding new insurance plans, so do not hesitate to contact us to see if we take your insurance.
- While your insurance premiums, deductibles, and co-pays may have changed we still charge the same rates for our services as we have in the past.
- We will still offer payment plans for people that need to spread out their out-of-pocket payments so that they are easy to manage.
- Some insurance plans do not require a physician’s order. If your insurance requires a physician order we can contact the doctor on your behalf to request an order.
- If you are un-insured we have cash pay programs to help meet your needs.
So the easy answer to the “Healthcare Reform” question is that we will be operating status quo. Internally our organization will handle any changes in paperwork or documentation needed for your insurance claims. If you have any specific questions regarding your insurance plan, contact us at 480-833-1005.
