"I would rather have questions that can't be answered than answers which can't be questioned." ~Richard
Why do you not accept insurance? Working through insurance many times does not allow for the highest level of care and limits the
time that a therapist can spend with a patient. In order to be successful as an insurance based practice, patients have to be seen for less direct treatment time and more time is spent with
unskilled treatment. Stepping outside of the insurance based model allows for more time and better quailty of care for clients.
Can I submit my bill to my insurance for reimbursement?
Yes, you can submit your bill for treatment to your insurance for possible reimbursement. How this will be applied to your insurance is dependent on the details of your plan (out-of-network
benefits, deductibles, etc.). Please contact me for more details about how you can check with your insurance about if treatment will be
Can I submit my receipt for reimbursement to my HSA or FSA?
Yes, your HSA/FSA should accept a receipt from Movement Evolved as valid and allow you to apply the expense to your account for reimbursement. Please let me know ahead of time if this is the
case for me to provide the appropriate receipt.
Will Medicare cover my physical therapy treatment through Movement Evolved?
Unfortunately, federal law prohibits chiropractors and physical therapists from seeing patients on a cash basis for services that are normally covered by Medicare. Since training is not a
service covered by Medicare, training is always an option to allow you access to a high quality movement assessment and specific exercise prescription tailored to your needs and goals.
Please contact me for more details or if you have questions regarding Medicare.
Do I need a prescription for physical therapy? Fortunately, Pennsylvania and Delaware have what is called "direct access," which
allows a patient to be seen for the first 30 calendar days of treatment without a prescription. After this, a prescription will be required in order to continue with physical therapy
treatment. Maryland does not require a prescription. If, however, you are only attending treatment intermittently or for different issues, this may not be the case. This can be discussed
further at your first appointment. No prescription is required for training or movement assessment.
What should I expect for the first appointment?
The goal of the first visit to to comprehensively assess your symptoms and goals and then perform a comprehensive assessment of movement and muscular function. From this information, a custom
program will be designed to start working on improving movement and advancing physical capacity to move you toward your goals. This is done with both manual therapy, therapeutic exercise,
neuromuscular re-education, and a home program to allow you to continue progressing between appointments.
How should I dress for an evaluation? Comfortable, lose fitting clothing is recommended. Ideally, this would be shorts and a t-shirt
or tank top as well as your normal athletic footwear. There is private space to change if the weather is not conducive to this type of clothing.
Is there another practice location where insurance is accepted? Yes, I work for another company in Delaware that does accept
insurance. Please contact me for more information regarding this company.
