FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Check out the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions below. If there’s something you still need to know or an answer isn’t detailed enough, please get in touch for more information.
WHAT TYPES OF HEALTH INSURANCE DO YOU ACCEPT?
Pelvis Power PT is an Out Of Network provider which means, we do not take any insurance for our services. We charge a flat rate for our services. We will provide a Superbill upon request for you to submit to your insurance for any reimbursement. However, HSA/FSA can be used to pay for services.
WHY DON'T YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
Not taking insurance allows your physical therapist to provide you with comprehensive care without the restrictions of insurance verifications, visit limitations, and limitations placed on your plan of care, which could potentially delay your progress with therapy. Billing at a flat upfront rate guarantees that there will be no surprise bills in the mail due to high deductibles or misquoted benefits.
HOW MUCH DOES A SESSION COST?
We bill a flat upfront rate of $175 for in-office sessions and $200 for mobile sessions. Payment is due at the time of service
DO I NEED A REFERRAL FOR PHYSICAL THERAPY?
As of September 1, 2019, a referral is no longer required to begin physical therapy in the state of Texas. Physical therapy services may be provided for 10 business days without a referral. If physical therapy is required after 10 business days, then a referral from a physician, chiropractor, or dentist is required. If you do not have one of these providers, we can recommend a local physician or telehealth provider for you to obtain a referral.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY FIRST PHYSICAL THERAPY SESSION?
Your first physical therapy session includes a comprehensive assessment that focuses on your primary concern/injury, as well as an assessment of the other areas that may be contributing to or affected by your primary concern/injury. Education and discussion will be provided throughout so that you can understand what was found during the assessment and what the plan may look like moving forward. Treatment as well as an initial home exercise program will be provided following the initial assessment. The initial assessment may last 60-90 minutes depending on the complexity of the primary concern or injury. Follow-up sessions last typically between 45-60 minutes.
WHAT IS A WELLNESS SESSION?
Wellness Sessions focus on mobility, strength, or body mechanics to improve performance for specific tasks ie. running, jumping, squatting, etc. Wellness sessions are intended only for asymptomatic people and will not include any hands-on treatment such as manual therapy. Wellness sessions may be for you if you have a mobility restriction that impacts your performance or if you would like to fine-tune a specific movement. A personalized program will be given to you at the end of your wellness session that includes 3-5 exercises to improve your performance. Wellness sessions do not require a prescription for physical therapy and are not eligible to receive reimbursement from your insurance.
