In an effort to help you review your outpatient rehabilitative insurance benefits with your primary and/or secondary insurance St. Francis Rehab and Sports Medicine has put together some key questions to ask your insurance provider. Your insurance provider should always be your main source of information.
St. Francis Rehab and Sports Medicine clinics are operated by St. Francis Regional Medical Center, which is jointly owned by Allina Health, Park Nicollet Health Services and Essentia Health Critical Access Group. Therapies at St. Francis Rehab and Sports Medicine are considered hospital outpatient therapy, billed as a facility. We use the same provider ID’s as St. Francis Regional Medical Center.
The following are some of the questions you may want to ask your insurance provider when speaking with them:
- Are outpatient physical, occupational, and speech therapy services covered under my policy?
- Do I have a co-pay for out-patient therapy? If so, what amount is the amount?
- Do I have one co-pay per calendar day or one co-pay for each service provided on a day?
Example: If you have a $20 co-pay, and receive physical and occupational therapy on the same day, do you pay $20 or $40.
- Does the plan limit the number of therapy visits in a calendar year? If so, how many? Is this number for each service or combined for multiple services? If combined which services?
- Does your plan require prior authorization before beginning therapy services?
We accept and are able to bill most insurance plans. Below is a list of those most commonly billed:
- Medicare (Shakopee location only)
- Health Partners
- Work Comp
- Motor Vehicle Accident Insurances
- Champ VA
- Prime West
- Non-MN BCBS
- Preferred One
- United Healthcare
For those patients who do not have health insurance or those who have maxed out their benefits, please contact Allina patient services at 612-262-9000.
Disclaimer: While this is an extensive list, health plans do change regularly without prior notification. We recommend that you verify with your health plan what physical therapy benefits you have available.
