It’s crucial to prepare your health insurance and possible out-of-pocket costs when your doctor or healthcare team recommends physical therapy sessions to help in your recovery.
Some people avoid PT sessions because they can be expensive. The national average of 1 hour PT session costs $40-70.
Employer-based health insurance such as a health savings account (HSA) or a flexible spending account (FSA) helps you pay the cost of service.
How to reduce your PT session costs? Consult your insurance company for coverages and limitations of your therapy sessions. Ask for medical financing options or discounts from your doctor or hospital as advised by The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).
How about Medicare? Medicare Part A covers physical therapy for patients who stay in hospitals, nursing facilities, or home care service providers.
Our home health care services include tracheotomy care, physical therapy, and post-surgery care.
