WILL INSURANCE COVER THE COST OF MY TREATMENT?
In order for massage to be covered by any insurance plan, the services received must be completed by a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). You may also be required to submit a doctor's note recommending that you receive massage therapy.
Some insurance plans cover massage therapy but only up to a certain amount per visit. This may be a dollar amount or a percentage. Any amount not covered by your insurance company must be paid on completion of the treatment.
WHAT IS DIRECT BILLING?
Some insurance companies allow Assignment of Benefits—the provision that allows a massage therapist to bill them on your behalf so that you are not required to pay for treatment up front.
If you have insurance coverage under any other health care plan, and would like us to complete billing for you, please call them to verify that they allow assignment of benefits.
In the event that your plan does NOT allow for assignment of benefits, you will be required to pay for any services as they are performed and will receive a detailed receipt that you will be able to submit for reimbursement.
Please feel free to give us a call or email if you'd like to discuss how we can work with your insurance provider. We're happy to help.
