As we near the end of the year, many of you might find yourselves in a situation where your insurance deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums have already been met for the year, meaning the insurance company will typically pay 100% of your medical costs. Others have a flexible spending account and oftentimes those funds are lost at year-end, if not spent. So how does this affect you when it comes to those aches and pains that you’ve been meaning to take care of?
Sometimes aches and pains seem to come out of nowhere, and other times what seems like a simple injury results in lasting pain. Maybe you’ve been experiencing a pinching sensation in your elbow whenever you lift something heavy, or maybe your back pain is flaring up more frequently than it used to. Do you feel pain in your knee when you go up or down stairs? These are all issues that Team of Doctors of Physical Therapy & our Occupational Therapist can help with. In addition to injuries, weakness, balance, & common aches and pains,
If your policy renews in January, now is the time to get in for therapy to get those issues resolved, especially if your insurance deductible has been met. Your cost for therapy services may be significantly reduced, or better yet – covered 100%, depending on your individual plan, and if your deductible has been met. So now is the perfect time to give physical or occupational therapy a try!
Furthermore, some insurance companies have limits on the number of physical or occupational therapy visits you are allowed per calendar year. If you haven’t used all of your allowed therapy visits for the year, it’s important to take advantage of them before they expire on December 31,2022! Oftentimes your treatment may just consist of a few visits.
