Now a days, people are paying $30-50 on co-pays and $100's in deductibles per PT visit.
With an average of 20-25 visits, that can add up $1,000 - $3,000 or more.
The sad part:
Despite high total costs, the value of care is low. Patients often receive "cookie-cutter" interventions, non 1-on-1 care, are seen by multiple different clinicians, and are treated by unlicensed therapy aides.
Unfortunately this often leads to:
In contrast to typical community care, I use a method that increases the rate of recovery and dramatically reduces the need for medications, injections, surgery and imaging. Source
The MDT® method does this by streamlining patients to the most appropriate interventions. This is the only method which uses a complete systematic cause & effect exam process followed by a response-based treatment algorithm. (learn more)
This takes the "guess work" out of prescribing treatment, ensures expected outcomes are being reached, as well as leads to early detection of "non-responders" and the need for a referral.
All in all, less PT visits are utilized, unnecessary medical care like injections, surgeries or medications are eliminated and patients are routed to specialists without wasted time.
In summary, I average 6-10 video visits total. This saves people time from extensive PT or chiropractic visits and can save people money, even when using insurance in standard care.
I use the first 3-5 visits to get patients better, get them on their way to being better, or identify the need for a referral. If a referral is necessary, I guide the process and communicate directly with that referral for a smooth transition and continuity of care.
I am not in network with insurance so that my patient care is not dictated by a third party that (unfortunately) doesn’t care about you or me.
The reality is... insurance companies are not anyone's friend.
They pay clinicians less, they require the consumer to pay more in premiums and deductibles every year, and in the middle, they just make a lot of money.
The more visits you need to get better, the more money they make.
Heres how: because you "used" so many of your benefits, they justify raising your premiums each year. Go ahead and compare your current rates from last year.
2019's average annual premium for single coverage was $599 per month. That's $7,188 per year. Easily another $1000 after all the co-pays/deductibles. The vast majority of people don't come close to receiving $8,000 worth of medical services each year, unless they have had a catastrophic health event (which is what insurance is really for).
Furthermore, I am solving complex problems.
This is not something easily done when I have to work with 2-3 people at the same time or send you to a PT assistant or an aide without any formal training for all of your follow ups.
Think about this, if you went to get your taxes done and the tax accountant was working with you and 3 other people in a group setting, giving general advice on what deductions you might have or what deductions you could take, do you think some of your tax breaks would be missed?
Do you think that accountant would make more mistakes?
There is a reason tax accountants don’t sit down with a group to do their taxes...
Taxes are an individual thing. Just like your body.
That is why it is so important I work with my patients 1-on-1. If the insurance companies would pay me enough per hour to work with you 1-on-1, I would absolutely get in network but they don’t. And there is nothing I can do about it.
You could end up spending $1000-$3000 on PT even with using insurance, why not spend your hard earned money on a first-class-non-stop-ticket type of care?
