A Guide to Going Fee-for-Service with Your Physical Therapy


Whether it’s being able to bike a “century,” run a 5K or painlessly climb a flight of stairs, MovEvolution Physical Therapy practice is built upon 3 goals—to decrease your pain, speed repair and growth, and help your body achieve the highest levels of performance possible. To achieve this mission, we have adopted to a Fee-For- Service model.

MovEvolution Physical Therapy has seen insurance companies reduce their reimbursement rates while increasing your deductibles and copays. They have also made it increasingly difficult to get visit authorization, interfering with consistent management of client injuries.

The American Physical Therapy Association has observed a similar trend in care: “Physical therapists (PTs) sometimes find that the restrictions placed on their services by third-party payers interfere with their ability to help patients reach their goals.” 1

Look at the numbers. Under commercial insurance, you usually see you physical therapist on an average of 15 minutes per session. The remainder of your session you are either left alone to perform basics exercises (you could easily perform at home or at a gym) or paired off with a PT Aide. Compare this to MovEvolution’s 1 hour rates and packages and you’ll see why our fee-for-service model offer you the best value.
