if you do not see your insurance on this list, give us a call.  You may have out of network benefits that still allow you to be seen by our clinic.  If your insurance will not pay for our services, we offer a 25% discount for cash payments at the time of service.

 

In the state of Washington, we have direct access to physical therapy (see below).  For Medicare Part B beneficiaries, this means you can go directly to a PT prior to seeing your primary care provider.  Once we see you, our plan of care is sent to your PCP for their signature, and we can begin treatment.  For private insurance policy holders, check with your insurance company to see if you need to get a referral first.

Washington Is Direct Access for Physical Therapy

What is Direct Access? In the field of Physical Therapy, it means that patients have the ability to go directly to a physical therapist to receive an evaluation, without being referred by a physician first. If a person feels they have a problem or injury that a physical therapist can help with, they can refer themselves to one if their insurance permits it.

Direct Access is beneficial for many reasons; patients can avoid costs by not having to get unnecessary scans and tests at the doctor’s office for conditions such as dizziness, vertigo, or difficulty with balance. Setting up an appointment with Sound Balance Solutions PT will lower your healthcare costs, decrease wait times at the doctors’ offices, and get you help to recover sooner.

Practicing physical therapists must meet the strict criteria and take part in continuing education to renew their therapy license every two years. They are trained to recognize “red flags” that may signal the need for more invasive medical interventions. In those cases, referral to your physician or other healthcare provider would be made by the physical therapist immediately.

If you are suffering from a condition that causes dizziness or vertigo, or other balance and movement limitations, use your judgement to decide which healthcare practitioner to see. Physical therapy is a safe place to start your road to recovery, and we have the tools and training to get you there.
