Insurance Option for Massage Now a Possibility
Nov 28, 2012 01:14PM
NASH Therapy Inc. located in Satellite Beach, is now offering both Occupational Therapy and Massage Therapy. The practice specializes in rehabilitating problems related to the neck, arm, shoulder and hand (NASH) using hands-on touch treatments from a client-centered perspective. Restoring function and eliminating pain, as goals, are sought after equally.
The company is an in-network provider for Medicare, TRICARE and CIGNA. While insurance reimbursement for massage therapy alone is often difficult, NASH Therapy Inc. can often incorporate deep-tissue manual therapy techniques into their client’s occupational therapy plan of care, which is generally payable under many insurance plans.
“We have used this approach often” states NASH Therapy Inc. owner, Sean Slovik (OTR/LMT), “and we have had good results with getting insurance to pay for clinical massage work, as long as the client comes in with a prescription for occupational therapy from his or her physician, and is treated by a licensed Occupational Therapist. Luckily, our Occupational Therapist is additionally trained and licensed as a Massage Therapist.”
