DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?

I am an out-of-network provider meaning I do not accept any insurance.

However, if you have out-of-network coverage you may be able to get reimbursed for your session by submitting an itemized receipt to your insurance that I am happy to provide to you.

I do accept cash, check, credit, Medical Reimbursement Accounts (MRA), Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) cards.

YOU ARE ON MY INSURANCE'S LIST OF PROVIDERS. ARE YOU SURE YOU DON'T ACCEPT INSURANCE? 

I do not accept ANY insurance at Motus Clinic.

I used to accept insurance at a clinic I worked at a few years ago and unfortunately the insurance companies don't update those lists frequently. I am probably still on some of them even though that is incorrect.  

WHY DON’T YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?

Eliminating the insurance company allows me to work directly for YOU instead of for the insurance company.

Because the insurance company is not dictating care, I can spend more time with you and we’re not limited in what we CAN or CAN’T do during the sessions.

That means better quality care, less visits required and accelerated recovery times for patients.

WHAT CONDITIONS CAN YOU HELP WITH?

I can help you with anything from chronic pain, shoulder, back, neck, jaw, elbow, wrist, finger, low back, hip, knee, ankle, foot. Tendinitis/tendinosis, muscle strains, sprains, joint pain, ligament tears, muscle tears, post operative rehab, repetitive strain injuries, labral tears, disc/spine injuries, impingement, and much more!

If you’re not sure about any condition send me a message and I’ll let you know if I can help you.

If it’s not something I can help with, I can refer you to someone in my network who can.

DO I NEED A PRESCRIPTION OR REFERRAL TO COME SEE YOU?

Nope.

SHOULD I GET AN X-RAY OR MRI BEFORE I SEE YOU?

Most rehab professionals can accurately diagnose the problem without imaging most of the time.

It’s probably not necessary as it will not change the course of treatment unless you are a candidate for surgery or have “red flag” symptoms which we can determine after an exam.

My license allows me to write you a referral for imaging if we decide it’s necessary after an exam.

SHOULD I SEE MY PRIMARY CARE DOCTOR OR AN ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON FIRST?

Unless you are a surgical case, your medical doctor or orthopedic surgeon will likely not be able to help you.

We can determine if you are a candidate for surgery (most are not) on the first visit and I can refer you to an orthopedic surgeon (or other medical professional) for a second opinion if we decide that it is necessary. 

WHAT LICENSES/PROFESSIONAL DEGREES DO YOU HAVE?

I have my doctorate in chiropractic. I am a licensed chiropractor, and I am board certified for physiotherapy by NBCE and specialize in orthopedic sports medicine. Physiotherapy/rehab is within in my scope of practice and is primarily what I do in my practice.

DO YOU WORK FOR MOTUS?

I rent space from Motus Clinic but I am not an employee of Motus.

I am an independent contractor meaning that I have my own separate business and I work for myself.

Because of this, any questions, phone calls, emails or faxes should be sent to me and not through them.
