Why should I consider concierge physical therapy over traditional insurance-based therapy?

March 7, 2017

Why should I consider concierge physical therapy over traditional (insurance-based) outpatient physical therapy?


Won't it be more expensive for me to have a private pay physical therapist come to my home?


These are questions that have been asked of me so I thought it would be helpful to provide some information and to explain the benefits of concierge physical therapy as it is a new concept for many.


Below is a comparison that makes the cost benefit more clear:


CONCIERGE PHYSICAL THERAPY

 vs. TRADITIONAL OUTPATIENT PT


Concierge:

Cost per visit: $110                              

Total visits: 4                                        

Total cost: $440                                    

1-on-1 time spent with PT: 60 min      

Cost per minute: $1.83    

                    

Traditional:

Co-pay per visit: $40

Total visits: 12

Total Cost: $480

1-on-1 time: 15 min (per 30 min)

Cost per minute: $2.67


Once you add in time spent away from work or school and travel time to and from physical therapy, the cost benefit becomes even greater.


When you begin to compare the cost of going to a traditional outpatient clinic vs. having a private pay concierge physical therapist come to you, consider this: if you attend traditional outpatient PT, you are typically seen 2-3x per week for “x” number of weeks. Patients receiving private pay physical therapy are typically seen 1-2x per week. So, a patient that is receiving private home physical therapy may actually only need 4-6 visits as opposed to the typical 12 or more visits at an insurance-based outpatient clinic.


When working with a concierge physical therapist, you will be provided with high quality, skilled and customized care, lengthy one-on-one visits and a great patient experience. The therapist has the time to provide you with manual therapy and a progressive home exercise program that meets your needs. You will find a level of compassion and exceptional care because the therapist is truly invested in you and helping to achieve your goals. You will have access to the therapist via text, phone calls and email with quick response times. Private physical therapists see the value in treating a patient one-on-one. A private pay physical therapist has the time to work with you that is not available to a traditional outpatient therapist.
