MNF is a provider for Medicare. Medicare is responsible for 80% of the session fee, with the additional 20% being covered by the secondary insurance. Patients who have no secondary insurance or whose secondary insurance pays only part of the 20% are responsible for the balance.
Most out-of-network private health insurance will cover physical therapy. As there is a great variety of health insurance plans, please call your company for their specific coverage provided.
A referral from a doctor to see a physical therapist is not required in New York State for the first 30 days or ten sessions of treatment. However, some health insurance plans might still require a referral. Please check with your insurance for the specific requirements before starting physical therapy.
Medicare still does require a referral with a diagnosis from a doctor before starting physical therapy.
