The PT Minute – Why go “cash-based” Physical Therapy vs. “insurance-based” PT?


The PT Minute

This week’s PT Minute question:
“Why go “cash-based” Physical Therapy vs. “insurance-based” PT?”

Dr. Carlos J Berio –  “This is a question of ‘what you value most’. If one-on-one time with a physical therapist is important to you find a value-first cash practice or practitioner. If being eyeballed across a big room with some wimpy rubber band is something that sounds like a blast then you just might love getting treatment at one of the PT Mills in your area.”

Dr. Ivy Jordan –  “The outcome is to get the best care possible so you can return to the life and activity you want. When insurance is involved you can’t be sure they have your best interests as their priority. So rather than spend your time and money with those that don’t care about what’s best for you, opt for those of us that have your goals as our priority.”

DPT Nathan Rogers – “I think it sends a powerful message when you choose to use money out of pocket for a service. To me, that sounds like you are invested and find value in what you are paying for. Do you want want a massage and some ultrasound, or do you want to work muscles you never thought you had and get better? If that is your goal, SPARK is the place to be.”
