If you’ve been in an auto accident, we can help. At Physical Therapy Specialists, we tackle the pain and the paperwork. Don’t let common myths stop you from getting the treatment you need!
Myth: You need a doctor’s referral to come see us.
No referral is needed to become a physical therapy patient. Contact us directly to schedule an appointment with one of our Doctors of Physical Therapy. They specialize in soft tissue injuries, torn muscles and ligaments and disc injuries, which are common accident injuries like whiplash.
Your Doctor of Physical Therapy will evaluate you thoroughly, determine if diagnostic imaging is needed, then set you up a treatment plan with goals to help you get out pain and get your life back. They will work with you and be involved in your care throughout your healing process.
Myth: Physical therapists don’t order x-rays, MRIs, etc.
Our Doctors of Physical Therapy can order any diagnostic imaging, such as an MRI or x-rays, that may be needed. No need to spend additional time and money at specialist appointments!
Myth: You should only call us if you’re in severe pain or have a specific injury.
An auto accident is a traumatic event for the body, and the injuries you sustain may not surface right away. Delaying treatment can lead to long-term issues like chronic pain, reduced mobility or spine degeneration. Even if you aren’t hurting now, our evaluation will reveal any hidden injuries that could impact you later.
Myth: You should wait to settle with the insurance company before being treated.
Truth: Never settle with an insurance company before you’ve had us evaluate your injury. If you settle before your injury is fully resolved, you will have to pay out-of-pocket for your care.
Myth: You’ll have to handle all the paperwork and phone calls.
We’re experienced at navigating the insurance part of medical payments, and we’re here to help. If the accident wasn’t your fault, the other party’s auto insurance should cover your health care expenses in our office. Our team will handle all the paperwork for you. If the accident was your fault, your treatment should still be covered through Med Pay. We’ll guide you through the entire process.
If needed, we can also help you find a reputable attorney to relieve you from the direct bargaining process with the insurance company. Instead of paperwork and phone calls, you can focus on healing.
Myth: Your treatment is only covered if the accident wasn’t your fault.
Med Pay will cover the medical costs resulting from an auto accident regardless of who was at fault. Your insurance rates will not increase if you file a Med Pay claim.
Myth: Your insurance rates will increase if you seek treatment.
Most auto insurance companies have what is called Med Pay, which covers the medical costs resulting from an auto accident. This means you are 100% covered, with no out-of-pocket expenses, up to a certain limit. Your insurance company will not raise your rates if you file medical claims on your own Med Pay coverage. We’re happy to confirm this for you before you start any treatment.
