PRIME PERFORMANCE REHAB MISSION STATEMENT
Prime Performance Rehab provides physical therapy and human performance development for active people in the Charleston area looking to recover from injuries and return to their normal lifestyle. We bridge the gap between healthcare and performance.
Our patients are co-owners in our business. We work for you and we give you the tools to take ownership of your personal healthcare experience. Our goal is to help you get back to the activities you love by creating and maintaining a strong, resilient body.
Our practitioners are strength and conditioning specialists with an extensive knowledge of body mechanics, anatomy, and movement disorders. We pride ourselves on the fact that our therapists practice what they preach by being regular members at the gym, staying in shape, and moving well.
We are striving to be the first healthcare providers that understand the athlete and can relate to the level of health and performance they want to achieve. There is so much misinformation surrounding health and wellness. Prime Performance Rehab serves to guide you out of pain and into a confident, active lifestyle.
PRIME PERFORMANCE REHAB
Prime Performance Rehab exists to offer an alternate healthcare solution that is outside of the broken, insurance-centered rehabilitation system. We are healthcare providers that understand the athlete and can relate to the level of health and performance they want to achieve.
Cash-Based vs. Insurance:
What Does This Mean For Me?
We are an Out-of-Network clinic, meaning that we do not have any direct contracts with big insurance corporations. All of our doctors make decisions based on what is best for the patient that came to see them. They are not limited to what an insurance company says that they can or cannot bill for. We are committed to providing the highest possible care for each individual patient.
Insurance companies begin providing coverage once your deductible has been paid. Physical therapy visits typically cost between $140-$250 even after paying your copay which is commonly around $35. Healthy individuals that rarely use the medical system or their health insurance plan will find that cash based physical therapy often saves them money and gets them a much higher quality of service. Eliminating the insurance company can save money and give power back to the patient by allowing them to decide when they are healthy enough to stop physical therapy.
Insurance companies often view many performance-based services as “not medically necessary” and therefore will not provide coverage. Many of these “not necessary” services are crucial to getting athletes back to the level of performance that is required for their sport. These services bridge the gap between healthcare and long-lasting health and fitness by addressing the issues beyond getting patients back to the minimum baseline for physical therapy discharge.
Traditional physical therapy clinics have appointment slots that average around 30 minutes and the 1-on-1 time with your doctor during that visit is typically less than half of that time. Insurance companies have lowered the rate that they reimburse PT services every year for the last 7 years (now 8 starting in 2021). In order to combat this lowering of reimbursement, insurance based companies have had to take-on a huge number of patient volume to the point where they are attempting to see 3+ patients at the same time. When you spread your healthcare providers that thin, nobody wins.
