As my client, what you need to know about PA health Insurance.

Natural Kneads Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork
98 Valley Drive. Pittsburgh, PA 15215. 412.782.2002 or 421.996.5005. www.naturalkneads.com

Natural Kneads Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork accepts insurance claims due to auto, truck and motorcycle accidents.

If you are an auto accident victim and have a referral from your medical doctor, you are entitled to therapeutic massage. If you have been injured in a car, truck or motorcycle accident in the state of PA, your auto insurance should/will cover all or a portion of your massage therapy treatments related to the accident, even if you are charged as the cause of the accident. If the need arises for you to hire an attorney to represent you in vehicle accident/ insurances cases, we are happy to recommend one of several ethical professionals who work in that field. Additionally, we are able to recommend reputable physicians who specialize in your type of injury. At Natural Kneads we are here to assist you in your recovery and help you to be secure in the knowledge that you are provided with the best medical referrals.

Many injuries due to vehicle accidents will benefit from massage. These injuries often include whiplash, tendon damage, muscle spasms, chests, neck and back injuries, myofascial pain, headaches, migraines, and insomnia due to pain.

If you have been injured in an accident please follow these simple steps to qualify for massage therapy from Natural Kneads.

1.Contact your primary care physician or referring doctor. If you do not have a Doctor we will be happy to recommend one of several experienced professionals for you.

2.Request a prescription for massage therapy that details the diagnosis of your condition and the number of treatments per week that your physician recommends.

3.Call us to schedule an appointment. We are professionally licensed massage therapists and we will be happy to assist you.

When you arrive for your first massage appointment, make certain to bring along these simple pieces of information.
• Your prescription.
• Your insurance company name, address, phone number and card.
• Incident claim number.
• Adjustor’s name and phone number.

We will handle all of your insurance billing for you, so that you can concentrate on achieving your healing goals. There is no out of pocket cost to you.

NOTE:While insurance typically pays the cost of massage therapy for auto accident victims, there are some insurance companies that are refusing coverage, such as Progressive Auto Insurance. In the case of denial of coverage, the financial obligation of the treatment becomes the responsibility of the insured, thus we recommend that you check with your insurance company about their coverage policies.

Many insurance companies are keeping quiet about the fact that you can be massaged as part of your coverage. PA insured residents are entitled to massage therapy in the case of vehicle accidents or workman’s comp. The courts and new health care laws will no doubt settle certain coverage issues in the coming months. Next year on 10/10/10, everyone who is insured in PA will qualify for licensed massage with a Dr.’s script, but until that time, vehicle accident victims and those injured in on the job should qualify for these two forms of massage today.

But in the meantime, let’s get the word out. Therapeutic massage is healthy, safe and helpful therapeutic process.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.
