Does Karma Rehab take insurance/medicare?


I am a cash based mobile practice and am not an In-Network Provider. However, you might still be eligible for reimbursement via out of network benefits. Almost all insurance companies have slowly been increasing deductibles for their patients while at the same time decreasing provider reimbursements. They are also trying to dictate what treatments are allowed for patients. Not going through insurance allows me to focus on you one on one for a full hour without restrictions. You’ll see why below. Example: let’s say your deductible is $5,000 and each session at strip mall physical therapy is $150 until the deductible is met. If they see you 3x per week for 8 weeks, that’s $3,600. Now logically this $3,600 all goes towards that $5,000 deductible right, NOPE. Many insurance companies only apply a percentage of that amount towards the deductible. How much percentage? It’s their discretion. In the end you are paying more to spend less time with the therapist (again, more on this below) and more time at the strip mall. I believe that insurance/medicare should not be dictating how we treat you or how often. I strongly believe that you deserve time and individualized care. Your health is an investment into avoiding piles of future medical bills and staying as independent as you can.




Difference between Karma Rehab and most outpatient clinics in the strip mall down the street?


You and your goals are my sole focus for a full hour. If you went to strip mall therapy you don’t get that. Because they are in-network with your insurance, their 1 therapist needs to see at least 4 patient every hour. That means you get at max 15 mins of one on one time with that busy therapist. With most outpatient clinics you are cattle churned through the revolving door. Its not their fault, that’s the only way they can keep their doors open. I get to spend more time with you each session so you will progress faster and more importantly be better quicker. It will take me less visits to get your desired results. This saves you money in the long run while giving you more time to do what you love. Also, you frequently don’t get the same therapist at strip mall PT so continuity isn’t always that good. You get me every time. After speaking with you, if outpatient is the best therapy for you, i will recommend it and help you find the best place close to you.




Difference between Karma Rehab and ABC home health company?


In order to receive home health therapy, you must first be home bound. This means the you can only leave your home with assistance of another person or assistive device and to certain places only. You don’t have to be home bound for me to help you. Also, you are restricted to a certain number of visits before you will be discharged, whether you are better or not. In 2020 Medicare changed to a PDGM system. For you that means less overall visits. Most patients who were getting 2x/week visits have now dropped to 1 visit per week. Less time with the therapist, less number of visits and limited freedom. You do not need to be home bound for me to work with you. In fact, thats the point, I don't want you to be home bound. I want you to go and live your life! I belive home health therapy is very improtant and if you are approptate for that type of therapy i will recommend great home health companies for you prior to working with me.




What do you need to do so you can be your healthiest self?


If it is physical therapy you need then we will require doctors orders. The state of Texas at this time is still a partially direct access state so you will need MD orders but ONLY for physical therapy services, not for wellness/fitness services or nutrition. I can evaluate and treat you a few visits without MD orders but it will be required shortly after Initial Evaluation. I can help you with that also. If you have out of network benefits, I will give you the required document you will need to submit to your insurance. The amount your insurance company might reimburse you depends on the plan you have. For wellness/fitness services you do not need MD orders. I will help you figure out whats right for you at the Initial Evaluation. You can also use your HSA account to pay for these services.




Can I submit Medicare claims?


Simple easy answer is NO. Karma Rehab is NOT affiliated with Medicare. I can only treat you if you will NOT be submitting claims to Medicare. This decision MUST come from you and be made by the patient’s own free will. So you need to tell me that you are not wanting to submit claims for reimbursement to medicare. This is for physical therapy only and does not apply to wellness and nutrition visits.




What are the advantages to healthare coming to you?


There are many. First and most important is that you get to spend more 1 on 1 time with you medical professional. Next, it about your schedule and you choose the location. Also, privacy. You don’t have to sit in waiting rooms. You already have plenty to do, don’t need to add driving and getting stuck in traffic to the list. There are no distractions, I focus on getting you better via a personalized specific program. I come to your home, office or gym. I’ve met clients at pools and parks for treatment. I fit into your schedule. I put you first. Last and certainly not least, the quality of care you will receive is second to none.




Why do I believe everyone must do some form of resistance training?


Exercise isn’t just medicine, it’s the best medicine. This is true for prevention and for recovery. In my opinion, every single person needs some form of daily exercise. The selection of which exercises, quantity, progression, and modifications is specific for each person. And that also changes as one progresses and improves their health. That's why I am here. Resistance training doesn’t mean lifting big heavy weights. Resistance training is beneficial not only for your muscles but also to your bones, joints, cardiovascular system, lymphatic system and mood. As an added bonus, it also burns extra calories.




Speaking of calories, let's talk about nutrition. Why do I believe everyone must improve their eating habits, some more than others?


A diet is temporary, nutrition is a habit. The only way your body can work optimally is if it is given the proper nutrients to work. Too little of one nutrient or too much of another and the efficiency decreases. How many calories to eat? What foods to eat to best fuel you and keep you healthy? I can help you with your nutritional needs also. I can help you make healthier choices of what foods you choose to eat.




Why choose Karma Rehab?


-YOU want personalized, quality, effective 1 on 1 care to come to you. -YOU prioritize your healthy. -YOU want to be in the best shape you have been in years. -YOU want someone to help motivate you to exercise. -YOU need somone to help monitor your form and choose the right exercises. -YOU want to return to what you enjoy (sports, traveling, playing with grandkids, etc). -YOU or your loved one recently had a fall or “close call.” -YOU have just had surgery and you want the best rehab training you can get. -YOU might be getting surgery. I can prepare you pre-surgery so that post-surgery your tissue heals better and aids in faster recovery. The stronger you are pre-surgery the better the outcome post-surgery. -YOU want to avoid surgery or other procedures. -YOU want to get rid of your pain. -YOU want to remain in your home and avoid moving to an assisted living facility. -YOU want to stay out of the hospital. -YOU were discharged from outpatient or home health or rehab facility and you want to keep getting better. YOU might have been told that you have “reached your maximum potential or have plateaued.” -YOU are have difficulty with your mobility or are weaker than you should be. -YOU are concerned about your loved one moving independently and safely. -Your doctor prescribed YOU to do exercise but you are unsure how to start. -YOU want to get back to an active healthy lifestyle. -YOU are retired and want to do all the fun things you use to do. -YOU need someone to set up the correct exercise program so that you can remain healthy, active and pain free. -YOU have run out of benefits. -YOU have nobody to drive you to your appointments or you prefer not to drive. -YOU get me 24/7, via email, text or phone call. -there are many more reasons. Email or call me so we can talk about YOUR GOALS and how I can help YOU transform YOUR LIFE and achieve YOUR BETTER TOMORROW.
