Athlete’s Acceleration Physical Therapy is considered an out-of-network provider and therefore does not accept insurance. The patient pays at the time of service, allowing the therapist to focus attention on providing the best possible service while keeping administrative costs low.
You can call your insurance company and ask them “what are my out of network physical therapy benefits?” It’s usually a quick call to the number on the back of your card. Many times they may reimburse you for all or some of your PT services, especially if you have a PPO (instead of an HMO). We’ll give you all the information you need to get reimbursed. The traditional insurance model does not allow us to treat the way we feel is best for you or spend the time with you that you deserve.
This gives clinicians more freedom to spend time with each individual patient, and treat them the way that is the best, fastest, most efficient, and based on the current evidence, without the restrictions that dealing with insurance brings. This means that clinicians are able to get right to the point of your treatment and treat your injury, pain, or dysfunction with the highest quality care. Often, because clinicians are able to spend more time with patients, it translates to athlete’s feeling better faster.
This allows us to spend more quality 1-on-1 time with clients. While most PT clinics see you 3x a week with many other patients at the same time, we usually see you 1-2x a week. You tend to need less visits, and in the long run may end up spending less with us than a traditional PT practice when you consider your deductible, co-pay, and extra visits needed.
It is important to note that in-network provider status is not currently based on education, experience, skills, or treatment outcomes, but is often determined by the number of providers in a demographic area. At Athlete’s Acceleration, you will be treated by a Board-Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist Doctor of Physical Therapy, with extensive experience treating a wide variety of athletes and returning them to sport safely.
