Since therapeutic massage
can be beneficial in the recovery of a great deal of musculoskeletal
injuries I am pleased to provide third-party billing services.
ANSWERS TO MOST COMMON QUESTIONS
What insurance companies can you bill for massage? In many cases Automobile, PIP, and Workers' Compensation
insurance will pay for therapeutic massage treatments.
Most private insurance plans do not pay for massage services;
if yours does I will be happy to provide the same billing
services as well.
Do I need my physician's
approval for treatment? In order for any insurance to pay for services it must
be prescribed by your treating physician. As part of your
healthcare team I will keep your physician apprised of
all evaluations, treatment plans, and continued progress.
What does my doctor have
to write on the prescription? The prescription has to indicate the diagnosis, diagnostic
(ICD9) code, and treatment requested. The diagnosis and
code have to be a condition for which massage is indicated.
I have a simple prescription form that your physician can
complete in under a minute to simplify the process.
What if the insurance does
not pay after treatment has been provided? I will always request pre-approval for services from
the insurance provider. I will follow whatever billing
and charting requirements they may have to ensure that
payment is not delayed or denied. However, if the insurance
company does not pay you will be responsible for payment.
If your condition was the result of an accident and you
have retained an attorney to help you recover damages and
medical expenses, I will work with the attorney to make
this process as painless as possible for you.
