Focused Care for Self-Pay Patients
To me, physical therapy doesn't have to be just episodic relating to a surgery or an accident. By not accepting insurance, we are able to work with a new mom, high-level executive, an empty nester or retiree, to help them achieve a higher level of performance than insurance would typically cover.
Specifically, we perform a Five-Point Check Up using an InBody scan to determine skeletal muscle mass, body fat, cardio endurance, strength and functional ability. With this, the patient receives a score and their therapist develops a plan to get the patient stronger and improve their function. All of the work is one-on-one and we aim to solve the patient's problem and then set goals to achieve beyond that.
I've been a member of PPS for five years and at first, I thought, how is this going to benefit me since I'm not a big company? My initial thoughts changed after being in the Peer2Peer NetWorks program; that was a game changer for me. The program gets you around like-minded people and pushes you to do better. The camaraderie is great and really shows that we are all in this together to make health care better.
