Get the Most for Your Money: Your Guide to Paying Cash for Your Physical Therapy

Get the Most for Your Money: Your Guide to Paying Cash for Your Physical Therapy

By Richard Symister @ MovEvolution Physical Therapy


Effectiveness + Efficiency = Value

MovEvolution Physical Therapy practice is built upon 3 goals—to decrease your pain, speed repair and growth, and help your body achieve its  highest levels of performance possible, whether your goal is to bike a “century,” run a 5K, or painlessly climb a flight of stairs.
To achieve this mission, we have adopted a cash-based model. See Why MovEvolution Dropped 15 Insurance Companies.
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 your injuries.
The American Physical Therapy Association has similarly observed this 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.”

Look at the numbers!

Under commercial insurance, you usually see your physical therapist on an average of 15 minutes per session. For the remainder of your session, you are either left alone to perform basic exercises that you could easily perform at home or at a gym, or you are paired off with a PT Aide/Assistant.
At MovEvolution, you get 60 minutes of 5-star care!
