Below are the most common frequently asked questions that clients ask before deciding to work with VanSlyke Physical Therapy.
Do you accept my insurance?VanSlyke Physical Therapy is here for you not for insurance companies. We are a cash-based practice that does not accept insurance. You are able to submit claims to your insurance provider to see if they will cover a portion or all of your services and reimburse you directly, and many often do. You may request invoices and notes from us to for you to help assist in your submission to your insurance company. Most insurance companies have claim forms on their website or you can contact your health benefit member services. If you have a claim form, complete the form using the invoices and treatment codes that we provide for you. The amount you are reimbursed is dependent on your “Out-Of-Network Physical Therapy” expense benefits. Dealing with insurance companies can be a pain. We can assist you with submission of claims for an additional fee of $50.
Do you accept my HSA/FSA?We do accept HSA and FSA cards. Let us know when you arrive for your first visit that you plan to use HSA/FSA funds.
Do I need a script or referral to make an appointment?In the state of South Carolina a script/referral for physical therapy is NOT required unless PT care extends beyond 30 days from the initial evaluation. For any healthcare that is beyond the scope of practice for the treating clinician, a referral to the appropriate medical professional is required.
What is the No Suprises Act and a Good Faith Estimate?The No Surprises Act is a law that began in 2022. The No Surprises Act protects people covered under group and individual health plans from receiving surprise medical bills when they receive most emergency services, non-emergency services from out-of-network providers at in-network facilities, and services from out-of-network air ambulance service providers. While it is difficult to estimate your total costs accurately prior to seeing you, if you request an estimate prior to or at your initial evaluation, we can provide one for you. Individual session prices vary from $ 199-159 (hourly visit rate) though estimated number of visits are subject to change based on your individual issue and circumstances. Following a thorough physical assessment, a more detailed estimate can be made. Discounted per session rates, found within our package options, serve to reduce the overall total cost.
Am I able to submit a claim to my insurance company?You can submit to your insurance provider to see if they will cover a portion of what you paid for services. If you are eligible for reimbursement they will do so directly to you. If you need any invoices and/or notes for you to submit to your insurance company, please notify us as soon as possible. For most insurance companies, you can find a claim form on their website. Reimbursify is another option that provides a simple and faster way to submit your health claims for reimbursement. Check out, https://reimbursify.com/individual-page/for more information. The amount you are reimbursed is dependent on your “Out-Of-Network Physical Therapy” expense benefits.
