Health Insurance Coverage

Release Physical Therapy is a non-participating (out-of-network) provider with all health insurance plans*.

Many insurance plans provide benefits for physical therapy services provided by out-of-network providers.

Health insurance plans, policies, and terms vary greatly, and each person’s health care needs and expenditure is unique.

Filing Insurance Claims
Release Physical Therapy files our patients’ primary insurance claims as a courtesy. Please note that while submits claims on your behalf, you are still responsible for ensuring that the insurance provider properly processes your claims.

We require full payment when services are rendered. We offer multiple payment options, including MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express. Failure to provide payment at the time of services will automatically result in a cancellation of future appointments.

What is Direct Access?
Direct Access allows you to be evaluated and treated by a licensed physical therapist in Washington, DC without a prescription or referral from a physician. Direct Access provides you with immediate and economical access to physical therapy services.

Will my insurance cover my visits?
Although all patients in Washington, DC, have direct access to physical therapy care, each health insurance company has its own requirements for coverage. Some health insurance companies require their members to have a referral from a physician for physical therapy services. Because we are a non-participating provider, you are responsible for any charges not covered by your insurance company.
