Frequently asked questions
Do you take insurance?
No. Unfortunately, we are out of network with all insurance companies. However, you will recieve a superbill in your patient portal that you can submit to your insurance company for your out of network benefits.The superbill will include all the information your insurance company will need to process the claim. In our experience, most clients have been successful in receiving either full or partial reimbursement, depending on their individual plan. If you are not sure what your out-of-network physical therapy reimbursement looks like, call your insurance company for this information.
We know it is expensive to pay out of pocket. Our promise is to get to the root cause of your issue quickly so that you can get back to what you love sooner. We rarely see people more than once a week and that saves you time in your busy life and in traffic. Most PT clinic see patients 2-3x/week and they see more than one patient at a time. Not us. We see you one on one for an hour so that you can continue to live your life with less interruption.
Do you take Medicare?
No, unfortunately we do not take Medicare.
Do I need a script from an MD before I come to PT?
In the state of Georgia, a prescription for physical therapy is not necessary for the first eight visits or twenty-one days. However, we will be unable to perform dry needling unless you have a script by the second visit.
At Precision, we prefer to have a script by the second visit so that we have more flexibility with your treatment. There are some circumstances like chronic conditions as well as health, wellness, and maintenance status that allows the patient to extend their physical therapy care past the alotted twenty-one days without a script.
You can get a prescription from your primary care physician or specialty physician (orthopedist, neuologist, etc). Many insurance companies also provide telehealth benefits that include speaking to a physician or nurse practitioner. You can recieve a script via telehealth. If you do not have a physician, we are happy to refer you one.
What is the difference between Performance and PT?
Runners, triathletes and golfers could fall under either category, depending on what they want. Running analysis is done in both PT and Performance appointments if you are a runner or triathlete. A golf movement assessment will not always be done in a PT visit unless the PT deems it neccessary.
Many people do not need hands-on, regular PT to help them improve their ability to golf, compete in running or triathlon events. If you are not currently in pain and are looking to improve your running form, to decrease risk of injury, to learn sport-specific strengthening and conditioning, or imporve your golf swing then a performance appointment is probably a better choice. If you aren't sure give us a call and we can help you determine which option is better.
