Today I showed up for my physical therapy appointment only to find out that my new insurance does not work with this physical therapy location. Unfortunately I am finding this out three appointments in to the new year. A regular appointment costs around $250. The office manager told me that because I didn't know that my insurance would not cover the appointments, she would cut me a break and only charge me $105. The-Insurance-Company-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named paid them $69 and I would have to pay the rest. This was only for these three appointments. After that I would have to pay the full price and it would be up to me to file the receipt with my insurance company and get reimbursed.
I went to my appointment and then I told them I would have to think about it. I am not willing to pay that much out of pocket when I have an amount that need to meet on my plan. So I need to find another physical therapy place. It sucks.
It also sucks that I can't get through to The-Insurance-Company-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named on the phone. I am going to try again tomorrow.
