INSURANCE & PAYMENTS

Insurance

 

​Maximum Impact Physical Therapy is currently an out-of-network provider. We currently participate with workman's compensation claims as well as Medicare part B plans. We are out of network with all other insurance plans.  Before you become disheartened and look for the next clinic near you, let’s explore what private pay physical therapy is and how this method will often save you time, money, and resources, while also helping you achieve your desired results.

Why choose a cash-based or an out-of-network physical therapy provider over a clinic that accepts insurance?

 

While most practices focus on high-volume bookings, we focus on individualized treatment in a quiet, private, and relaxed setting. Dr. Shyla sees only one patient at time, and you’ll always spend a full hour with her—a licensed Doctor of Physical Therapy—not aides or technicians.

Insurance-based clinics are limiting

Therapists at clinics that accept these insurance rates are generally required to see 3–4 patients per hour and usually spend an average of 15 minutes of one-on-one time with each patient while aides and technicians instruct patients in exercises. At Maximum Impact Physical Therapy, you spend the entire hour with Dr. Shyla, your therapist, so you will heal faster in fewer visits.

Insurance also limits what areas of the body a therapist can focus on during a single visit. With her years of experience, Dr. Shyla has seen time and time again that holistic approaches to the whole body result in faster and more complete healing.

 

What does that mean for you?


Fewer appointments, faster healing, and a quicker return to the activities you love. This also means less time taken from work, family, hobbies, cost of travel to clinic, expensive babysitters, and more.

Can I get reimbursed through my insurance?

In most cases, the answer to this is YES! For most insurance companies, you can find a claim form on their website. Simply print it out and submit it along with your receipts and treatment codes that I provide for you. The amount you are reimbursed is dependent on your “Out-Of-Network Physical Therapy” expense benefits.


Don’t forget that your services are HSA/FSA-eligible medical expenses, just like any other physical therapy clinic. Consider the savings of being able to pay with pre-tax dollars!

Do you accept Medicare?

Maximum Impact does not have a relationship with Medicare. Medicare beneficiaries cannot receive treatment unless they choose to withhold all billing from their insurance. This request must be made upfront, and signed consent documented. If after an evaluation you feel you’d rather utilize your insurance benefits, Dr. Shyla will be happy to discuss other potential physical therapists in the area to meet your needs. Additionally, we offer wellness programs for Medicare beneficiaries wanting to take advantage of non-covered services.

Payments

Our rates are standard, no matter what treatment you need. Each visit is 1-hour long. Most patients only require one session per week, although a few benefit from two sessions per week.

Wait—that's way more expensive than if I used my insurance!

While your first reaction may be that private-pay will cost you more money out-of-pocket, you will see below that in most cases, this system actually saves patients money while providing them with faster and more effective treatments.

An average patient is asked to see a physical therapist 2-3x per week. During those visits, you work with an actual physical therapist for 15 minutes each session—a total of 30 to 45 minutes. If your co-pay is $30 per visit, you’re paying $90 for 45 minutes of time with a therapist. Patients are typically asked to see a physical therapist for a period of 6–8 weeks (18–24 visits). That means your $30 co-pay can cost you between $360–$720.

The same patient at Maximum Impact Physical Therapy will only requires one appointment per week. They will spend the full 60 minutes with Dr. Shyla at a cost of $85 per visit, with an initial visit of $100. Because of the extra time spent with a therapist each week, you will likely only require 3-6 weeks of therapy. That means the total cost for 3-6 sessions is only $270–$525!

The Bottom Line

Wouldn’t you like to be pain free in half the time? Why make 18–24 visits to a physical therapist when you can receive better results in 3–6 visits? Most people find it difficult to take an hour out of their day three days a week to go to treatments—not to mention, gas, traffic, and getting a sitter. And if your co-pay is higher, or you have a high deductible, the benefits of treatment at Maximum Impact Physical Therapy are even greater!

There’s no question—this is a better way!
