What is Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy is a service provided by a clinician whom holds the knowledge to be considered as primary care physician for pain. They understand the human body, can identify conditions appropriate for treatment, and triage what is not. PT can be seen as a full-body check up to address painful conditions without the use of pain medication, surgeries or injections.
In order to be treated, is a physician’s prescription required?
MA state law does not require patients to have an MD prescription for physical therapy treatment. However, your insurance company may require you obtain an MD prescription if you plan to file for reimbursement.
Do you accept insurance?
IPPTW is considered an out-of-network provider. While insurance is not processed directly, and payment is due at the time of service, patients may submit claims to their insurance company directly. IPPTW bills using usual PT codes and will make sure clients receive the documentation necessary to receive the maximum reimbursement available. Patients are advised to contact their insurance companies to find out what their benefits are for outpatient out-of-network physical therapy.
Additionally, all physical therapy services can be paid for via Health Savings Account and/or Flexible Spending Accounts.
