PTs are using a variety of cash-based practice models to meet their patients’ needs.

Out-of-network, or cash-based, models can allow PTs to avoid restrictions placed on their services by third-party payers that interfere with their ability to help patients reach their goals.

Another benefit of this approach is avoiding the cost of collecting payment from third-party payers and the difficulties in negotiating rates with insurance companies that may undermine the financial viability of a PT practice.
