Massage Therapy Billing Services California, CA
Increasing dependency on massage therapy and a burst in the number of therapists leave independent therapists and care organizations that employ them to deal with something that’s not as rosy: partial insurance coverage and disparity of rules from one state in the US to another. What adds to regulatory complexities is that a therapy to be reimbursed, has to be recommended by a physician via a prescription and has to be carried out under the supervision of the physician.
Partial coverage, disparate regulations and the need to establish by proper documentation that a therapy has been carried out upon a physician’s recommendation and supervision as an extension of the physician’s treatment - together bring upon the care provider administrative and other responsibilities that the provider is ill-equipped to handle.
