FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you take my insurance?
The insurance question! No smoke and mirrors here, straight up, I am an out-of-network provider. This most certainly works in your favor, but understanding why is of upmost importance (more on that below).
Do you see men?
Yes. Yes. Yes.
Why are you out of network?
I'm out of network with insurance companies because it is better for you, as the consumer. And yes, it is better for me too because there are no road blocks to giving you the BEST possible care.
What should I expect?
No B.S. and full transparency.
When you come to see me, you should expect to have the time you need to express your concerns, feel heard, and be thoroughly evaluated. Your first visit will be spent establishing a plan for you to succeed and get better quickly.
Much of what I aim to help my patients achieve is autonomy and a sense of agency over their situation. Giving you the knowledge and power you need is vital to reducing your healthcare costs, as well as to getting you better, so that you don't need me.
I treat most clients 1x/week and rarely exceed 4 visits with folks. Saving you time and money.
**If you're looking for passive treatment modalities, such as massage, ultrasound or electrical stimulation, that is not something I offer.
How much will my therapy cost?
The cost of therapy is dependent on a few factors. Educating yourself on these things will drastically improve your ability to advocate for the care you need and ultimately reduce your costs.
The first factor that will dictate the cost of your therapy, is you. If you have a high level of motivation to get better, your ability to invest in your health will go a long way as you collaborate with me. Each 60 minute appointment is $175.00 and is based on a market analysis of others offering similar services in the Seattle and surrounding areas.
The second factor that will dictate the cost of your physical therapy depends on where you go to see a physical therapist. At many "in-network" clinics, you may end up seeing a physical therapist multiple times per week for several weeks on end. Often paying a co-pay and additional costs not covered through the contracted insurance rates.
Sometimes, this means receiving unexpected bills months later. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to understand these things as you work to find a therapist that fits for you. Each insurance company offers different benefits, so it is vitally important to educate yourself on your benefits, so that you know what to expect and can make the best decision to suit your needs.

At SisuPT, you know what therapy costs are up front. There are no hidden fees. No bills that will show up in your mailbox months later and no excessive scheduling of appointments. I work closely with each patient to ensure they understand what is happening so that there are no surprises financially.
If you still wish to seek some form of reimbursement, that is most definitely something you can do. Understanding your "out of network" benefits is key. Often times, the cost of physical therapy at SisuPT is significantly lower than that of "in network"clinics and I can provide you with something called a "super-bill" so that you can submit your bills to insurance for reimbursement.
If you have any questions about the maze that is insurance, please do not hesitate to give me call 206-5-88-5375.
What is a "Super-bill?"
A super-bill is an itemized receipt for your paid services that includes the appropriate codes and information needed for insurance reimbursement. Super-bills are only provided to patients receiving physical therapy services.
