Cash Based Physical Therapy and Wellness Questions

In this cash-based treatment model the physical therapist enters into a contract with the patient instead of the insurance company. In doing so, physical therapy services will be provided in a manner that both parties have determined will help the patient reach the treatment goals most efficiently in the fewest visits possible. The patient pays at the time of service allowing the therapist to focus on providing the best possible care while avoiding  excessive time on documentation and paperwork hassles on the part of both the patient and therapist.  Moreover, the fee for each session is comprehensive and there are no additional charges for treatments not covered by insurance such as dry needling etc.
