The unique relationship that the clinicians have with the physicians allows for greater discussion and more efficient and effective care for the patient. Whether it is an update of patient progress or a more emergent situation, our therapists have a continuous line of communication with the medical staff to address the needs of our patients.
The conscientious staff at Peak Performance Sports & Occupational Rehabilitation will work with you to verify your insurance coverage. While this does not erase the patient’s responsibility to understand their insurance coverage, our staff will work to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Furthermore, our staff will handle all claim submissions in a timely manner and are available through a toll free number to answer any billing concerns you may have. We participate with Medicare, most major medical insurances, workers’ compensation insurance networks and motor vehicle insurances.
