Every appointment will be 100% one-on-one with your therapist. You can expect to spend 60 minutes at your initial evaluation, and 60 minutes at your follow up visits. Each session will include a combination of assessment, manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, neuromuscular re-education, and patient education on how to supplement treatment while at home.
This will vary greatly from person to person, depending on what you’re being treated for, how long you’ve been dealing with the issue, and other factors that will play a role in your recovery. “Typically” you’ll see your therapist one time per week in the beginning of your program, and work towards coming in every 2-4 weeks as you continue to improve. You might expect treatment to last anywhere from two to eight visits, depending on the severity of the issue.
NO! You no longer need a referral to get started with pelvic floor therapy! This saves you valuable time and money, as well as avoids unnecessary diagnostic testing and medications. The sooner you receive treatment for an injury or dysfunction, the faster you will get well! After we complete your initial evaluation, we will write up a Plan of Care and send it to the provider of your choice (typically your Doctor, OBGYN, Midwife or Chiropractor), so they can be up to date on your treatments.
AK Pelvic Health & Wellness is “out of network” with all insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid. This allows us to spend more one-on-one time in our sessions and provide the highest quality of care to our patients. This way, you can spend significantly less time attending therapy because you improve much more quickly. We collect payment at the time of service in the form of cash, credit card, check, flexible savings accounts or health savings accounts. We absolutely work with each patient to develop a plan that works for their schedule, lifestyle, and budget.
We will provide you with a super bill after each visit that you can simply submit to your insurance company for reimbursement for out-of-network benefits.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises ."
