Frequently Asked Questions

How much will therapy cost? Will insurance cover?

There is no simple answer.  MOST insurances will cover therapy, subject to deductibles, co-pays, and co-insurance.  They may cover at 100%, leaving no responsibility for the patient, or they may cover at 50%, leaving the patient responsible for the other 50%.  However, some insurance plans specifically exclude therapy services.  You as the patient have the right to know what your insurance plan will cover and who will be responsible for payment.  Ask.

A few tips:

  • Patient is responsible for any deductibles, co-pay, or co-insurance.
  • Call your insurance plan.  Use the Benefits/Eligibility number on the back of your insurance card.  If you feel uncomfortable calling, you can ask Mercy Hospital’s insurance clerk to call for you.
    • Ask what your deductible is, and how much is remaining.
    • Ask if there is a co-pay.  This is an amount that the patient is responsible for, for each visit.  Example: one insurance plan has a co-pay  of $40.00.  If you come twice a week for four weeks, your bill will be approximately $320.00.
  • Medicare usually covers about 80% of allowable charges.  Patient is responsible for the remaining 20%, unless you have a Medicare supplement plan.  The Medicare supplement plan will be billed after Medicare pays.  After the supplement plan has processed, the patient will be billed for any remaining balance.   This process can take several months.
  • Ask if Mercy Hospital is in network with your plan.  With some plans it doesn’t matter; with other plans, you may be responsible for 100% of the charges if you knowingly choose an out-of-network provider.
  • Bring your insurance card with you to all appointments.  At your first appointment, Mercy Hospital’s receptionist will gather information about you and your insurance, and will work behind the scenes to verify eligibility and benefits.
  • You will be asked if the reason for therapy is due to a work-related  accident, or a motor vehicle  accident.  If so, you will be asked for more information regarding the accident.  This is important to know.
  • If you have any questions, please ask a receptionist.
