Direct billing is easy and fast! It is the option to have your health care practitioner submit your insurance claim for you on your behalf. The insurance company may pay the clinic directly. Some insurance plans may be require the plan holder to pay up front.
Registered massage therapy, acupuncture and Athletic Therapy are covered under most extended health benefit plans. Some insurance companies require that you have a valid doctor's note prescribing massage therapy before they accept your claim.
Policy number: May also go by plan, contract, or group number. It is the number given to your company's general insurance policy.
Member ID number: May also go by certificate ID. This is your unique number and it refers to your specific plan under the umbrella of your company.
Deductible: a specified amount of money that the insured member must pay before an insurance company will pay a claim.
Co-Insurance: This term applies to patients who have multiple insurance companies. We will always submit to the insured member's insurance first. Any remainder will be submitted to your partner's plan. Some insurance companies allow us to submit co-insurance claims, but some may only allow us to submit the primary claim and require the insured member to submit their secondary insurance. If this is the case you will need to pay the remainder at the time of your appointment.
