Insurance and Payment Information:
PTSC therapists are contracted providers with most every insurance carrier and managed care provider in this region. We will be happy to bill your medical insurance for you providing you have your most current identification card available for us to copy. If your insurance requires preauthorization for treatment, we will call to obtain permission to treat you prior to your first visit. We will inform you of your insurance company's response and keep track of the number of visits your insurance company has authorized and the number of visits you have recieved. Our billing team is always available to answer your financial questions. Co-payments are due on the day of service. We accept payments by cash or personal checks, Visa, MasterCard, Private Insurance and verified Workers' Compensation or Auto Insurance as payment for treatment rendered. We cannot bill therapy supplies to your insurance company; all supplies must be pain for when recieved.
Please understand that your insurance coverage is a contract between you and your insurance company. You are responsible for your account. When the insurance company has issued a check on your account, any remaining balance including deductibles or co-insurance deemed patient responsibility will be due in full upon reciept of a statement from The Physical Therapy Specialty Center. If your insurance denies payment because of lack of authorization, you will be responsible for your entire bill. If you continue to be treated after the authorization expiration date or after the number of authorized visits is reached, you will be responsible for the unauthorized visits.
We look forward to serving you and helping you through your medical challenges.
