Effective january 1, 2020, we will be participating in the "Optum/UnitedHealthCare Discount Benefits Program 20%" This is for members who have either used up their benefits under their existing medical plan or do not have access to massage as part of their standard coverage. Patients pay directly at time of service.
You may also be eligible for coverage under your medical plan - Will my insurance cover massage therapy?
The easiest response to this question is for you to call your customer service phone number located on your insurance card and request information on massage therapy coverage. Each insurance company has different rules and conditions for when and how they will pay for massage. Typically, the types of insurance that covers massage are Major Medical PPO (ie: Fl Blue, Aetna, Humana, UnitedHealthCare, etc.), also Auto Mobile Insurance (PIP), Workman's Comp.
The few providers that usually do not pay for massage are HMO's and Medicare/Medicade.
