Sliding scale — available for individuals with low income or do not have benefits.
We are a small, fee-for-service clinic, meaning that we collect payment at the time of service (cash, credit card, check).
We offer direct billing through most extended health insurance plans!
How it Works
If your extended health benefits cover registered massage therapy we are able to file an electronic claim on your behalf. The portion that is covered by your plan will be paid directly to your therapist.
What you need to do
- Check your insurance coverage to confirm massage therapy is a covered expense and whether your plan allows direct billing (please keep in mind that some plans may require that you have a doctor’s note)
- Provide insurance details in your intake form and sign an electronic submission consent form at your appointment.
Please note: We cannot guarantee direct billing at every appointment. This could be due to issues with the submission portal, individual insurance plans or clinic administration considerations.
You are ultimately responsible for any difference between the actual treatment fee and the amount covered by your insurance. Please bring an alternate form of payment in case there is a problem with the transaction
Your appointment time is reserved just for you. A missed visit of a late cancelation leaves gaps in the therapists day that could otherwise have been filled by another patient. We require a 24 hours notice for any cancellations or changes to your appointment. Patients who provide less than 24 hours notice, or miss their appointment, will be charged a cancellation fee.
