Your insurance company is billed 45 dollars for every 8-22 minutes of PT services during a standard appointment. This makes the cost of each visit roughly 180 dollars. We are reimbursed a percentage based on the rate that insurance providers set in our contracts. The rate is driven by an unregulated, set percentage of reimbursement in the contract that we have no power to negotiate. As providers we have little choice but to accept the rate that the insurance company sets. This is one of the major reasons why the cost of health care in the US is so inflated.
Because we are contracted with insurance companies we can not legally charge different rates for people who are not covered by insurance. To off set the cost inflation driven by insurance providers we can legally offer a 25% discount for a patient paying cash at the time of service.
For an initial evaluation the cost is roughly 210 dollars. If there is a significant change in your condition we may also charge for a re-evaluation which is 85 dollars. Additional charges are based on 15 minute treatment codes.
These are very likely the same rates you would be charged in any practice for much less time with a lisenced physical therapist. At Union Physical Therapy physical therapists provide one on one care for an entire hour.
You may notice that you will not find any other providers posting their rates openly. We do this for a very specific reason. Health care is expensive and a medical providers time is valuable. If you can not afford PT services then please do not find yourself indebted to Union PT after service has been provided. We work very hard to make our treatment of your condition as cost effective as possible. If you compare the cost of your treatment to the consequences of not addressing your physical limitations in a proactive and holistic manner you will see there is no comparison. Paying for PT now will save you money on pain medication, surgery, possible days of work lost, and or the unmeasurable cost of disability. Your recovery is our number one priority.Share on Facebook
