INSURANCE & PAYMENT
Professional Physical Therapy Associates is an in-network preferred provider for most PPO (private) insurance plans and Medicare. We are preferred providers for nearly all PPO, POS and EPO insurances in California, meaning that we can offer lower rates than other clinics in the area. Also, as a service to our patients, we verify benefits with your individual policy so that each patient is informed of coverage details before treatment.

GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE
You have the right to receive a "Good Faith Estimate" explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who do not have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture or your Good Faith Estimate.
