Sport & Spine Rehab – Patients
Answer: As with all of our patients, we will bill your health insurance and they will process the claims. As part of the processing they will reduce the charges down to our agreed upon contracted amount. If you have a deductible they will apply the amount towards the deductible and it is our responsibility to collect that amount from you. Each visit will decrease your deductible by an amount equivalent to the contracted rate for each service that is performed and billed. Luckily we are able to estimate the amounts for you at each visit so that you can keep paying in smaller increments rather than receiving a large bill later on once the claims have processed. Once your deductible is met there is usually a benefit that follows such as a copay or a coinsurance where the insurance then pays a portion of the contracted rate and you are responsible for either a flat fee (copay) or a percentage of the contracted rate (co-insurance). Since these costs are based off of the services that are performed and billed the amounts you may owe can change at each visit.

Answer: Sport and Spine Rehab has worked with medical-legal cases for many years. We are able to bill your automobile personal injury protection (PIP) and med-pay coverages. In addition, we may also be able to bill your health insurance. If you require additional support, we are able to make referrals to highly regarded, ethical legal counsel. Please inquire at the front desk with additional questions and we would be happy to provide you with additional information and recommendations or you can call the scheduling staff at 240-766- 0300 and select the option for new patient scheduling.
Answer: Sport and Spine Rehab is not currently registered with Medicare or Medicaid as a participating or non-participating provider. As is stated by Medicare and Medicaid we are thus not able to treat any patient who has this insurance either as self pay or otherwise. Even if you have a secondary insurance that we accept, we will still need to refer you to a facility that accepts Medicare and Medicaid. If Medicare is your secondary insurance, we can bill your primary insurance and they will process your claim. We are happy to help you find an in-network provider in our area so please inquire with our front desk or scheduling teams.
Answer: If you scheduled at least 24 hours in advance we will call as a courtesy to verify your benefits, however we do recommend that you call on your own to confirm and ensure that you understand your benefits. You need to ask about your Chiropractic and Physical Therapy services. Our Doctors are Chiropractors with Physical Therapy Privileges so it is necessary that you find out what both benefits are even if you feel you will only receive one of the services.
