If you’re reading this, you’re interested in working with us, but not quite sure about us being “out-of-network” or “direct-pay”.
Whether You Decide to Work With Us or Not, Let Us Explain Just A Few Things To Help You Make A Confident Decision
You may have said or thought these types of things:
- “I would prefer to use my insurance benefits for PT.”
- “That seems like a lot of money.”
Why is Up and Running Physical Therapy not in-network with insurance? And did you say that can actually save me money?
In many ways, insurance companies dictate or strongly influence the treatment that patients receive at “in-network” clinics, and we refuse to allow that to be the case at Up and Running PT.
"I Want to Call My Insurance"
When people hear that we’re “out-of-network” they usually want to call their insurance to see what benefits they have… as they should! But we have some advice for you if you’re thinking this. If you’re going to do some investigation regarding your PT benefits, you might as well get the FULL PICTURE. People usually just ask… “Do I have any out-of-network benefits?” And if the answer is “no”, or “only after $X,XXX deductible is met”, they then immediately think, “well I guess I’ll stay in-network”… but this person still has no clue how much the “in-network route” will cost them, or what the value comparison is. So, please take advantage of the two checklists below to make sure you have all of the information you need to make the best decision for yourself. Knowledge is power, right?
What to ask your insurance agent:
"I Want to Find a Place That Takes my Insurance"
This can be a totally sensible thing to think about and want to do. We just want to make sure that you fully understand the difference in cost and quality care that you’ll be receiving. Sometimes going in-network is just as expensive or more, and for a lesser experience and results. So we highly encourage you to use the checklist below when calling around to get the facts straight about your PT options!
What to ask a Physical Therapy Clinic:
Here at URPT, sessions average 50-70 minutes of 1:1 time with your doctor of PT.
Here you will always have the same PT! And you’ll NEVER be treated by an aide or assistant.
Here it’s never more than once per week, and sometimes we are even able to spread sessions out, but that depends on the situation.
Here it averages 6-10 weeks but varies greatly depending on the specific case.
Here we specialize in athletes, active adults, runners, weightroom athletes, rock climbers, and women/pelvic health.
Here we always guarantee that you will always know exactly what you are paying for and will never be surprised with a bill.
