What makes One Nine different?
Your care extends far beyond the 30-60 minutes of 1-on-1 treatment time with the Doctor of Physical Therapy. Becoming a patient at One Nine, you enter into an agreement that we will work together to achieve your goals. We have a vested interest in your well-being and take this responsibility very seriously.
Will you take my insurance?
We work hard to make paying for your care simplified because our clients choose One Nine for the right reasons.
We do not contract with insurance companies because when they pay less, your get less. This means we can spend all of our efforts providing you or your family member with the highest level of care.
Good News! Most PPO insurance plans cover physical therapy at One Nine. We help you submit claims to insurance and they will send reimbursement checks directly to you. Our services ARE REIMBURSED by many plans. Call us and we will check your insurance benefits for free before scheduling your appointment. Keep in mind that insurance payments for all healthcare are only estimates.
MAKING YOUR INSURANCE WORK FOR YOU
One Nine provides high quality physical therapy care for you or your family member without all the confusion.
Some providers such as your MD, DO, PT, or DC may be considered "in-network" with your insurance. This means they have agreed to a lower contracted rate with insurance. As a result, the quality of the services often suffers. You may rarely see your therapist, be passed off to assistants, moved to a different therapist suddenly, not properly guided through exercises, or other lapses in quality. To make matters worse, you may be required to see a doctor for a prescription and pay for more treatment than you need.
Our solutions are simple. We do not contract with insurance companies - we work for YOU. One Nine physical therapy services are paid on a fee-for-service basis. We are out-of-network providers for most insurances, except Medicare.
Your dollar goes further! Co-payments and out-of-pocket costs can skyrocket quickly in today's healthcare. A large portion of your health expenses go toward paperwork, processing, management, oversight, and other corporate mechanisms. With One Nine, your healthcare dollars are spent directly on the services you receive, similarly to your favorite restaurant, salon, or dog groomer.
Do I need a Physician referral or prescription?
No. You are free to see a physical therapist without a referral in California. However, some insurances require a prescription to start. We are happy to call and check for you. Other insurers place restrictions on the number of visits you get per year. Be sure to check your benefits to see what your plan allows.
