I provide mobile physical therapy and wellness services in Southeast Idaho so that you can receive individualized treatment in the comfort of your home.  For insurance plans that are accepted, please click here.  Otherwise, I operate on a fee-for-service basis.  This can actually save you money in the long run (yes, cheaper than if you used your insurance) and allows me to focus on YOUR needs–not what your insurance company dictates**

**Why have I decided not to accept most insurance plans?

The short answer is that insurance companies dictate or strongly influence the type of treatment and the frequency/duration for which physical therapy is covered, which is not necessarily optimal for your care.  My goal is to serve patients—not insurance companies.

The longer answer is that I have seen first hand how insurance companies are changing the structure of typical outpatient orthopedic clinics.  Insurance companies are continuing to drop the amount that they reimburse physical therapists for the services that they provide for their patients.  This means that the typical outpatient clinic has had to find ways to increase the volume of patients that they serve to make a profit and be able to keep their doors open.  This means that your therapist at such a clinic will most likely be treating 2 patients at the same time and will not be solely focused on YOU and YOUR NEEDS.  Additionally, much of your treatment will likely be provided by a physical therapy technician or aide who gets paid just above minimum wage to assist a busy therapist.  Techs are not required to have any formal training in physical therapy and, therefore, can mostly just walk you through exercises that you can usually just do on your own at home or apply modalities–some of which you can also apply at home on your own.  You may be paying 100’s of dollars, even with insurance coverage, for unskilled services during many of your sessions.

I can ensure that your physical therapy sessions will always be with a trained Doctor of Physical Therapy–me.  You will always be treated one-on-one and I will be able to focus on YOU and YOUR GOALS.  I can also treat the whole you.  If you come to me with knee pain, but suddenly your back flares up, we can address all of the above.  I don’t need to worry about your insurance dictating what body part I can treat or not.  I can get to know you and monitor changes in symptoms/progress each and every session which will allow us to progress faster than if you were being treated in a busy clinic, in part by techs.  Faster progress means fewer visits to get you better.  This will save you money in the long run.  If you are one of those folks with a high deductible insurance plan with a physical therapy co-pay well over $100 dollars per visit, I promise that I can give you much better value for far less than this.

The bottom line is that going out-of-network allows me to adhere to my “TOPS” philosophy:
