As of 6/2022, we are in application to be contracted with BCBS of Texas in Westlake Hills | Austin, Texas. The deductible for your policy will determine a lot of this. You will have to pay out of pocket until the in network deductible is met. Once the deductible is met then your BCBS OF Texas will cover a percentage of your physical therapy treatment. This can range from 70-100%. If you have a plan that we are out of network with then it is a little different. You pay us up front and we bill your out of network plan and you will be given a credit towards your deductible or get reimbursed a percentage of the visit, typically 40-70%.
Physical therapy treatment sessions are around 55 minutes in length. After the evaluation by the physical therapist, the plan of care will be determined to establish the frequency of visits per week and how many weeks the plan of care should take to complete. Each person and their specific injury and goals will determine the plan of care.
