Do you have a High Deductible Health Plan?
New Year, new resolutions, and, unfortunately, a new (likely higher) deductible.
If you’re wanting to seek care but you’re worried about the cost and not sure how your health plan works, you’re not alone. Navigating the healthcare system can be stressful – financially, emotionally, and physically. But as we know, putting off care now leads to needing more care later… and spending more later, as well. This is especially true of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. It’s a fact that getting the right PT early results in less imaging, medication, and surgery.
This year – let us help you get the care you need without breaking the bank. We’re well versed in High Deductible Health Plans and have a variety of options at our disposal to ensure that you’re not putting off feeling better due to cost concerns.
Here’s what you need to know:
What is a High Deductible Health Plan?
A High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) is an insurance plan that requires patients to pay a large amount of their healthcare costs out of pocket before their insurance kicks in. According to the IRS, in 2020, a health plan is considered an HDHP if….
- The deductible is $1350 or more, for individuals
- The deductible is $2700 or more, for families
Additionally, more than 90% of persons enrolled in an Exchange Plan are in High Deductible Health Plans, in which the average deductibles are even higher: $3572 for an individual and $7474 for a family.
Yikes. So How Can Lake Centre for Rehab Help Me?
At Lake Centre for Rehab, we’re committed to providing our patients with the highest quality care, and that doesn’t just mean on the treatment table. We’re always searching for options to make physical therapy a reality for each and every one of our patients, regardless of their financial situation. Thus, we offer a variety of affordable payment and financing options, including:
Flexible Spending Accounts & Health Savings Accounts
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA) are a great option for those looking to use pre-tax dollars to pay for physical therapy.
Flexible Spending Accounts are set up through your employer and must be used by the end of each enrollment year. Health Savings Accounts allow you to spend money on qualified health expenses or medical costs not covered by your insurance. There is no deadline for withdrawing funds from an HSA, and unlike FSAs, anyone can set one up. All plans are different – it’s best to contact your insurance provider for details on eligibility and benefits.
Accepted Insurance Plans
We accept a variety of health insurance plans for patients needing musculoskeletal care. We’ll work with you and your health plan to make the payment process as easy and hassle-free as possible. For more information or questions on coverage, please contact your insurance agent or give your local clinic a call.
Lake Centre for Rehab therapists are specialists, not generalists, which means you get results in fewer visits, saving you time and money. In fact, care at Lake Centre for Rehab costs 76% less per episode compared to other physical therapists in Florida.
