Can Patients’ Use Their Insurance, Health Flex, and Savings, and/or Health Reimbursement Accounts for Massage & Other Treatments?
Yes, they should be able too as long as their insurance companies accept the therapy or treatments Dr. Hartman does and/ or it’s in your insurance plans.
Dr. Hartman does not accept, take, or file insurance claims, nor does she fill out and submit insurance forms for clients/patients. Although, there are many treatments and massage (for a medical condition) that should be covered (but not a guarantee) by your Insurance Provider and/or that you are able to use a Flex, HSA, or HRA to reimburse yourself for service(s). Those therapy clients and patients wanting to try to cover services, need to find out whether or not their plan covers it and speak directly with your provider. You cannot submit or claim anything different than what Dr. Hartman does and she will not submit insurance claims for you. Otherwise, this is falsifying her credentials and information…which is illegal.
Please use the below references to determine what CPT code(s) you would like to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement(s) if your plan covers massage, rehabilitation, soft tissue manipulation, manual lymph drainage or manual therapies etc.
NOTE: Dr. Hartman is not a Medical or Osteopathic Physician, Health Care Provider, Chiropractor, Registered Nurse, Licensed Practical Nurse or Licensed Physical Therapist and Insurance forms cannot be filed for anything other than what therapy clients or patients received. Example massage and/or manual therapy-depending on how your insurance company perceives “manual” therapy, most will assume this is physical therapy – which is incorrect. Above there is a website reference for the differences between the too…manual is physical, occupational, and massage and medical massage therapies. Unfortunately, at this time the health and food scans are not covered by insurance or any insurance plans. However, the company is working hard to get them covered.
Basic CPT Understandings : CPT is the acronym for Current Procedural Terminology – simply put, procedure codes. CPT codes are written to describe a procedure. Some CPT codes describe procedures, which are exclusive to a specific modality of work, while others describe procedures, which are more general and may be used by several different modalities. The American Medical Association (AMA) publishes the official CPT Manual. All CPT codes, which can be used for massage therapy and are found in the Physical Medicine section of that manual.
