YES, we take insurance!
We highly value clients using their hard-earned insurance benefits. Chrysalis Physical Therapy is an in-network provider with: Regence, Federal BCBS, Medicare, First Choice Health, HealthNet Federal Services (TRICARE Select), Cigna, Molina, and Kaiser Access PPO plans. Tricare PRIME authorizations are easily acquired! Many other “Blue Card” BCBS plans also consider Chrysalis in-network. Give us a call to find out the specifics for you. Clients with these insurance providers will follow typical medical billing procedures. Your rates will vary based on your plan.
For clients with any other insurance provider, first we will help you check what your out-of-network benefits are if that is still a better deal for you. If not, a fee-for-service model is used. The client pays an up-front flat rate and receives all necessary receipts to submit for reimbursement through their benefits provider. Initial evaluations are $180 (90 minutes) and follow-up appointments are $140 (60 minutes). HSA cards are easily accepted.
About Pelvic Health
What to expect: for your first session, we’ll start just by talking. Hearing your story is the first and most important part of getting a plan together. Based on this information and other aspects of your medical history, the evaluation will continue with a holistic, total-body orthopedic evaluation for strength, flexibility and balance. If your condition warrants an internal vaginal or rectal pelvic floor muscle examination, we will discuss this further and proceed only if you agree that it is important.
The plan of care and treatment at follow-up sessions is dictated by what we discover and what your goals are. I use an eclectic approach to try and best fit the values and needs of each client, and will probably be some combination of myofascial release; trigger point release; visceral fascia release; exercises geared toward retraining the muscles who need the help; and the most current, relevant patient education I can find for you. My goal with every client is to work myself out of a job by providing you with the information and tools to help improve your symptoms — and stay that way on your own.
