Do I have to have a doctor script?2019-12-10T01:08:42+00:00

No, there is no need for a doctor script if you are self-paying for the program. Depending on your insurance carrier you can use direct access where no doctor’s referral is necessary. Please feel free to call the clinic for further questions regarding insurance.

Can I use my insurance for the program?2019-12-10T01:07:59+00:00

Insurance can be used in certain circumstances to offset the cost of the program. For those individuals who have a history of injuries in the past few years, your doctor can send a referral for therapy. Our evaluation will determine how many visits would be appropriate for insurance. Co-pays and deductibles apply during this time period. Insurance visits are scheduled every 40 min. Once you have met your goals for the insurance visits, you will transfer to the program where visits are scheduled every hour. The cost for these visits will be based on the fee schedule for the ICAN program.
