Simple, Straightforward & Cost-Effective Physical Therapy in Tumalo, Oregon
Because every body and every injury is different, physical therapy treatment is something that’s specific to the individual, and that should be addressed on a case-by-case basis. When health insurance collides with patient care in a physical therapy setting, the results vary. More often than not, you get a compromised (and often cookie cutter) physical therapy experience, as well as increased recovery time, and more out-of-pocket costs.
In a traditional physical therapy clinic, the payment model for four weeks of treatment looks something like this:
Number of Visits (2-3x per week for "x" number of weeks): 12
Total Cost: $480
Time Spent with the PT (15min per 30min visit): 180min
Cost per minute: $2.67
In a physical therapy clinic like Tumalo Wellness, where we employ an upfront cash-pay model*, the math looks like this:
Cost Per Visit: $100
Number of Visits (1x per week for "x" number of weeks): 4
Total Cost: $400
Time Spent with the PT: 240min
Cost per minute: $1.67
*Depending on your insurance policy, it's often the case that you can file a claim, submit your bill, and either receive reimbursement or have any out-of-pocket costs applied to your deductible--thus decreasing your costs even more!
Your Time & Your Body Are Precious.

In addition to the average cost-per-minute for traditional versus cash-pay physical therapy models, there's also the inefficacy of care you'll encounter with most traditional physical therapy models. Why? If your health insurance covers one type of neck therapy or shoulder physical therapy, but you require another, several things occur. Your recovery time increases due to generalized physical therapy care that misses the mark, and your out-of-pocket expenses go up as a result of your increased need for physical therapy sessions. Under an insurance-based physical therapy model, “getting better” often becomes a costly and seemingly intangible point on a distant horizon. Not only does this get expensive, but as a result of minimal or delayed improvement, it can also be extremely frustrating and become detrimental to your overall health and wellbeing.
