We ask that ALL Patients that have an HMO or a PPO insurance plan to please be self informed as to Your Own Insurance Benefits. Please call your insurance company and ask: Do I have Occupational Therapy and or Acupuncture treatment coverage? How many treatment sessions does my plan cover each year? For OT and for Acupuncture? Do I have a co-payment for each of my treatment sessions? What is the exact $ amount? Do I have a set percentage or payment due for each session? Is there an annual maximum payout my Insurance plan/company allows each year for OT and or Acupuncture? ( since your calling you might also go ahead and ask about any PT and Chiropractic benefits). Do I have an Annual deductible ? and Do I have to pay All of my deductible before my insurance company will start to pay for OT or Acupuncture treatments? Do I have splint or DME ( durable medical equipment) coverage? When does my insurance plan coverage expire?
