If you go to physical therapy facilities accepting in-network plan, the clinic is usually high-volume practice, seeing 3-5 patients per hour for one practitioner.
As an in-network provider, fee for the session is already set very low regardless of their specific treatment method. This circumstance pushes them to make more appointments in a short time. Patients will see their physical therapist for only 10-15 minutes of individualized time and the rest of time, they usually work with physical therapy aids for exercise program. Moreover, documentation that is required by insurance companies makes it more difficult for PTs to focus on treatment.
If you go to facilities accepting out-of-network plan, you can see one-on-one session with a physical therapy doctor usually lasting more than 45 minutes with quality care.
This is because there is much less pressure from insurance companies including paperwork and low reimbursement. At our clinic, one session lasts for 50 – 55 minutes with orthopedic physical therapy specialist.
We are able to make medical care decisions based on your individual needs and not on insurance company needs.
After our initial evaluation, we will provide you with a specific plan of care to resolve your condition and meet your functional goals. We do not employ a template approach to your care in order to meet time constraints.
You can expect to make significant progress in your condition within two weeks or we will re-evaluate our strategy and guide you to a more appropriate plan of care.
Because our focus is on you and not on the insurance company requirements, we can maximize your rehab potential.
