  • Will I be charged if I cancel or miss an appointment?

    A cancellation fee of $125 will be charged for appointments rescheduled, changed, or cancelled with less than 24 hours notice.

Health Insurance

  • Can I use my health insurance?

    We are a self pay practice that is out-of-network with all insurance providers. We have three team members that are licensed physical therapists as well as Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioners®. They each hold a minimum of 20 years clinical experience and delicately utilize their Feldenkrais Method® training in the context of a physical therapy session. 

    If you have out-of-network insurance benefits and a current prescription for physical therapy, you may schedule a physical therapy session with one of our licensed physical therapists that are also Feldenkrais Practitioners. Payment is due at each session. We provide you with a paid invoice that includes all of the information you need from us. You submit a claim to your insurance provider and they directly reimburse you.

    We are happy to check your insurance benefits on your behalf and assist you in determining how much you may be reimbursed for a session with us. To check your insurance benefits and eligibility, we would need your full name, phone number, date of birth, and a copy of your insurance card (front and back).  Please note that the information we gather is not a guarantee of reimbursement. Your insurance company makes the final determination on the rate of reimbursement after you submit your claim. 

  • Is there a guarantee of coverage through my health insurance provider?

    We do our best to help you determine the amount your insurance provider will reimburse you, using the information provided to us. We encourage all our clients to call and verify the information we have compiled. Please download the simple guide called the Insurance Benefit Worksheet below to assist you in a call to your insurance provider. The information we provide you is not a guarantee of reimbursement from your insurance provider. Your insurance provider makes a final decision on the amount reimbursed after you submit a claim. We encourage you to submit your claims to your insurance provider as soon as you receive the paid invoice after your session.

  • Does my health insurance cover a Feldenkrais session?

    The Feldenkrais Method (including Functional Integration® lessons and Awareness Through Movement® classes) is currently considered an educational modality and not medical treatment by insurance providers. Feldenkrais sessions, classes, or workshops do not qualify for submission to an insurance provider for reimbursement.

  • What if I have Medicare?

    Unfortunately, you will not be able to utilize your Medicare or secondary insurance benefits at our practice. Medicare or any secondary insurance provider to Medicare do not recognize our business as a provider in their system and consequently will not reimburse you for our service. You have a great option to schedule a private Feldenkrais session with one of our licensed physical therapists at a lower rate of $165 - $195 an hour. We also have a team of highly skilled Guild Certified Feldenkrais practitioners who are not physical therapists. The session rates range from $100 - $165 depending on practitioner tier. 

  • I do not have out-of-network health insurance benefits. What can I do?

    You have a great option to schedule a private Feldenkrais session with one of our licensed physical therapists at a lower rate of $165 - $195 an hour. We also have a team of highly skilled Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioners who are not physical therapists.
