Richard accepts Personal Injury claims (PIP) related to car accidents. To process these, we need a doctor's prescription for massage/manual therapy as well as information about your claim.
Most plans require a doctor's prescription or authorization; please contact your carrier to confirm coverage for massage. The appropriate treatment code is 97140 for manual therapy.
Prescriptions need to be dated before the first session we have with you, and need to contain the following information:
- Diagnosis (with CPT code - the doctor provides)
- Number of sessions (usually 8-12 for adults; 4-5 for children)
- Frequency and duration of treatment (usually weekly/biweekly for adults; every 3 weeks for children)
So a common prescription might read, "Massage for low back pain (with code), 10 sessions, once a week for 2 months." Usually, when establishing duration of overall treatment it's useful to have a slight buffer to allow for scheduling hiccups (holidays, illness, etc.). Contact us if you or your provider have questions about how to word a prescription for the work we do.
Health History is required of all clients:
- Health history - Woman - Richard
- Health history - Man - Richard
- Health history - Children (under 12 years old) - Richard

The Billing Process:
Before the first visit, please download and complete the paperwork needed for establishing a claim (you may complete them once you arrive if you don't have a printer at home). On a monthly basis, we submit for payment from your insurance carrier. The insurance carrier then processes the claim and sends you an EOB (explanation of benefits)—which describes your coverage for each session. Generally, auto insurance claims pay for services up to the limits determined by your coverage; you'll need to speak with your claims adjuster to learn more.
We work with a billing specialist, who provides billing services for us. If you ever have questions about the status of your account or bills, you are welcome to contact Janice directly at (206) 850-1769.
