What is Out-of-Network Physical Therapy?

When it comes to health care, you have two options: in-network and out-of-network providers: In-network providers are contracted with your insurance company. This means that they have negotiated a set, discounted rate of reimbursement for services rendered. Typically, you pay a copay at the time of your appointment and receive a bill later, for the cost of treatment, until your deductible is met. 

Out-of-network providers are not contracted with your insurance company. This means that they have no obligation to adhere to the mandates or restrictions placed by insurance companies. Payment is due at the time of service, but there are no ‘surprise’ bills that come later. You may pay for services using cash, check, credit/debit card, or HSA/FSA funds. After each treatment, you will then receive a ‘superbill.’ This superbill is a summary of the treatment modalities and techniques implemented during the physical therapy session. If you have out-of-network benefits, you will be able to submit this to your insurance company for reimbursement directly. Most insurance companies, with the exception of Medicare, Medicaid, and some HMOs, provide out-of-network benefits. In many cases, this significantly reduces the cost of treatment. 

The New England Return to Sport Center has chosen an out-of-network model that allows us to blend 1-on-1 rehab and strength and conditioning principles in a way that maximizes value and optimizes patient results. If you are interested in exploring out-of-network healthcare, simply call your insurance company’s member services line or reach out to us directly.

I am so thankful for Julie! I have trained with her for years in team strength and condition settings for soccer. With her help I had become the strongest and most confident version of myself on the field. When I tore my ACL and meniscus I instantly knew who I trusted to get me back sport ready. Everyday we attack my progression in ACL-R recovery both physically and mentally. She goes above and beyond to support her athletes in and out of the center!
