Learn how to bill insurance for massage services. Billing insurance for massage services is an important part of the development of the profession and getting more accepted by the general public as well as doctors and insurance. Showing that massage can and does work for various conditions and can save insurance companies money in the long run will help get massage the respect it deserves. The more massage therapists that learn to bill, the louder our voice can be in getting massage accepted. That is why I have written this book. Insurance billing is one of the things that has allowed me to stay in business for 24 years as it is most always a consistent need. When people are hurt on the job or in car accidents, they come regularly for massage until they are better and often become regular clients who pay cash.
In most states, you can bill insurance for car accidents or work related injuries. Many health insurance companies are also ‘willingly’ paying for massage. You will need to find out what companies are paying yourself, but once you do, you will need to know what to do to bill and get paid. It is mostly a process of learning what questions to ask. Eventually, you will be able to tell what cases to take and which ones are better not to take. Yes there will be many challenges but that can be helped too when you reach out to your community of massage therapists for support and share your information on how to bill. (Buy Now.
