Auto-PIP | Auto-3rd Party Claims
Have you been injured in an automobile accident?
A car accident can leave you feeling as if you are lost in limbo. No matter what your personal injury is, a Massage Therapist can help you regain some semblance of the life you once lived. We take care of all your billing and handle the claim for you so you can focus your efforts on healing -- not trying to maneuver through the claims process.
The effects of automobile injuries sometimes take a while to notice. Adrenaline kicks in quickly after an accident and blocks the pain temporarily. Often you don't realize you have suffered any injuries until the next day.
There are many types of injuries that can occur as the result of an accident and the type of treatment you receive can depend on the severity of the injuries and/or where that injury is located. We work with all types of injuries, including but not limited to whiplash, muscle sprain/strain, spasms, headaches, nerve compression, numbness, lower back subluxations, vertigo, and much more.
Typically, the goals of massage therapy in injury recovery are to:
- Reduce stress
- Reduce pain and swelling
- Improve circulation
- Improve range of motion
Auto PIP (Personal Injury Protection)
PIP means that the client is covered by the benefits in the client's own auto policy. We contact the client's insurance company to verify that the client has benefits and has not exhausted the amount of coverage purchased.
The patient needs to provide us with the doctor's prescription for therapy, as well as the name of their auto insurance company, their claim number, adjustor's name, billing address, phone number and date of accident.
Auto 3rd Party Claims
Third party means that a client is covered by the insurance of another person (the at-fault party in an accident). This type of coverage generally means that the massage therapist treating the client may either receive payment from the insurance company at the end of the case (at the time of settlement), or the client may agree to pay the massage therapist and then submit the bills to the insurance company at the time of settlement.
Auto 3rd Party claims require prior authorization before massage therapy begins.
