Top 6 Reasons ThriveAgain May Be a Better Choice for You than Your In-Network Provider

It’s great when insurance pays for the care we need! In-network physical therapy might seem like the obvious choice, but depending on your situation, it may not be the right choice for you. Here are some reasons ThriveAgain may be a better match for your needs.

1. You’re on a budget

This may seem counterintuitive. Seeing a provider that works with your insurance means you pay less, right? Not necessarily! If you have an unmet deductible or a percentage co-insurance that you have to pay, you can end up with unpredictable bills for your physical therapy sessions. This can make it very hard to plan for how your care fits into your monthly budget. At ThriveAgain, you always know the cost of each session upfront before you come in. In some cases, the cost per session at ThriveAgain can end up being less than you would pay at a large in-network provider if you have a co-insurance or haven’t met your deductible

Additionally, if your insurance plan includes coverage for out-of-network care, your out-of-pocket costs may very well be less than our sticker price. We work directly with a professional biller and submit claims to insurance on your behalf, so you can get reimbursed without any extra paperwork.

ThriveAgain can also save you money by getting you better faster, with fewer sessions needed. More on that below. 

2. You value personalized care

Every session at ThriveAgain is one-on-one in a private room with your therapist, no physical therapist assistants, no rehab techs, no divided attention. Your therapist gets to know you from day one, creates a plan of care just for you, and continues to tailor your treatment to your needs during each follow-up session. If you are working with one or more physicians or other care providers, we will communicate with them (with your permission), so you have a team supporting you, not fragmented care. Many patients have told us we are the ones that finally put all the pieces together and allowed them to understand their condition and get on the path to recovery. 

We also pride ourselves on a warm and welcoming office environment to help you feel cared for from the moment you walk in (or even call!). You will never be shuffled through a noisy gym or routed to a call center to schedule your appointments. You will be able to e-mail our office manager or your therapist at any time (and expect a timely response!) 

3. You want to get better as quickly as possible

Because our attention is focused on you, we cover more ground in every session and you get the tools to feel better on your timeline. Many of our patients report changes in their symptoms within the first week of treatment or even during their first session. Still, we know sometimes our patients need other types of care in addition to physical therapy. If you aren’t making the progress we expect, we will connect you with the best specialists in order to address all facets of your problem to help you achieve the highest level of recovery as quickly as possible. 

4. Your time is valuable

Getting better quickly is also about valuing your time. More physical therapy sessions can mean more missed work, more need for childcare, and less time for you. This can have a big impact on the overall cost of your care, both tangible and intangible. At ThriveAgain, we value the time you set aside for your care and work with you to make the most of every session so you spend less time in our office and more time living your life. 

5. You want reliably excellent care

    6. You’re not getting what you need from other healthcare providers

    If you’ve been going to doctors and specialists for the past few months, years, or decades and haven’t found the insight or relief you’re looking for, we’re here to help you put the pieces together. If you have been ignored, antagonized, or traumatized in medical settings, we are here to listen and support you. If you are a zebra, and your other providers don’t get it, we do. If you have great healthcare providers, but there’s a piece missing, we’re excited to join your team!
