Taking care of our current clientele and helping new clientele with their physical therapy needs is my core responsibility in my position at SPARK. Not only do I want them to receive “all-the-way” well care specialized to their specific needs and get them back to the activity level that they are used to but I want them to garner all the benefits due to them from their Insurance Providers.
Usually when a new client calls to book an evaluation, their first question is “Do you take insurance?” or “How much does it cost?” These questions don’t have easy “Yes/No” or “It will be $150” answers. There is quite a bit more to understand when deciding between that $30 co-pay vs out-of-network care.
Here I’ll detail the difference between Value-First and Volume-First Care. Or as it has become known here, All-the-Way-Well-Care vs the PT Mills
In doing a side-by-side comparison of services, you will see that even though you are paying your fee upfront, your are paying less for your physical therapist’s time than when you use your co-pay for in-network services. That is because we work with most Insurance Providers in an out-of-network capacity and submit your claims for you for reimbursement. From our tracking records, the average reimbursement is 60% to 80% (*dependent on out-of-network deductible).
So, the real answer to “How much does it cost?” is up to you? Do you want to get better or stay the same?
