Insurance and Payment Info
Navigating this system is confusing and time consuming—after all, you're a patient, not an insurance expert. In recent years, insurance policies and billing requirements have become more complex. Insurance companies are requiring more and more documentation, and even PPOs may require pre-authorization for PT services. That's why Sarton PT goes above and beyond to help you get the best possible benefits from your insurance company and will advocate on your behalf to get the coverage you pay for and deserve. Sarton Physical Therapy routinely surveys other PT clinics to ensure that the claims submitted to your insurance are on par with the other providers in our area and specialty, and to put you in the best position to meet your deductible quickly, without any additional out-of-pocket expense. We will not only submit your claim, but also assist you in obtaining the required authorizations. Patients who self-submit claims or authorization requests are more likely to be denied for benefits, especially out of network. This could result in an appeals process which is complex and often lengthy with no guarantees. When you choose to receive treatment from us, we provide all of these services at no cost to you to make your experience as hassle- and stress-free as possible, so that your focus is solely on healing.
