DOES THE DOCTOR ACCEPT INSURANCE? 

Dr. Phelts accepts the followin insurances plans:

Aetna PPO

Aetna POS

United Healthcare PPO

Untied Healthcare POS

 

For all other insurances:

1.  You pay the doctor directly for services rendered

2.  Our office gives you paperwork to submit to your health insurance company for                    reimbursement.

3.  Your health insurance provider reimburses you directly.

 

AT WHAT COST WILL THE SERVICES RENDERED BE BILLED?  

Services paid at the time of the visit are billed at a rate of $60 for each 15 minutes or $240 an hour for services rendered. 

 

HOW MUCH TIME IS SCHEDULED FOR EACH OFFICE VISIT? 

Your first visit with Dr. Phelts will be scheduled for a minimum of 45 minutes and a maximum of 60 minutes. Variability in patient presentation requires flexibility in the time required for consultation, examination and treatment. You will be billed only for time spent with the doctor.

 

Follow-up visits are scheduled according to need and are most often 30 minutes in length. Our minimum follow-up office visit is 30 minutes.  

 

HOW OFTEN WILL I HAVE TO COME IN FOR AN OFFICE VISIT?

Many Physical Therapists and Chiropractors employ treatment therapies that require patients to come in 24-36 times over a three month period.  That kind of schedule can become over-burdensome to patients and their families.  This is not so with Dr. Phelts.  Dr. Phelts uses treatment therapies that are so effective that they typically require you to come in only 7-10 times over a three month period.  This saves our patients both a significant amount of time and money. 

 

WHAT FORM OF PAYMENT IS ACCEPTED?

Payment can be made by cash, check, Zelle, debit or credit card.  It is understood that payment is due at the time service is rendered.
