Questions

Do I need a referral?

In the state of Colorado, PT is considered a "Direct Access" service, meaning that you do not need a referral from your doctor for treatment. The providers at Alpenstrong are Doctors of Physical Therapy, and are skilled in examination and assessment of the human body. 

Do you accept my insurance?

We are in network with Medicare and will submit claims on behalf of medicare beneficiaries. Please be prepared to provide your MD's contact information at your initial evaluation so that we can send them your plan of care to avoid issues with medicare payment.
 

We accept direct payment for services at the end of each session. For patients with out-of-network benefits, we will create a superbill and can help you submit this document to your insurance for reimbursement. 

We are out-of-network providers because we believe this model allows us to offer the highest-level of care. With declining reimbursement from most insurance companies, physical therapist are often forced to see patients 2-3 times a week to make ends-meet. They are also often limited to only a few sessions before benefits run out (example: 6 sessions approved after a total knee replacement). Our model eliminates surprises by making sure patients and providers both know exactly how much treatment will cost so that better care can be delivered.

Other clinics often squeeze in 2-3 patients per hour, and spend large amounts of time using outdated modalities like hot-packs and ultrasound. At Alpenstrong, our treatments are evidence-based and meant to help you achieve the best results, as soon as possible. We want to spend your entire session one-on-one, answering your questions and helping you feel better.

How can I get reimbursed by my insurance company?

We encourage our patients to use the Reimbursify App to get money back from their insurance company as quickly as possible. The process is easy: after your visit at Alpenstrong we will send you a detailed "superbill" that you upload to the app. Your insurance company will receive the bill, and send you money back directly through the app. If your claim is denied, Reimbursify's pro's will help you straighten things out.
