What it means when your pelvic floor therapist isn't dictated by insurance

Insurance can be so confusing! Let’s look explore the nuances between insurance-driven appointments and the freedom of personalized, self-funded therapy.

In insurance-covered sessions, there's often a standardized approach. Your treatment might adhere to predetermined protocols, potentially missing the uniqueness of your condition. The scope can be limited, focusing on immediate concerns due to time constraints.

🔵 Insurance appointments are typically time-bound, leaving little room for in-depth discussions or comprehensive examinations.

🔷 In contrast, insurance-free sessions can extend, allowing more time for thorough evaluations, meaningful conversations, and unhurried treatments.

🔵 Insurance-covered therapies often come with hidden costs or uncertainties.

🔷 With self-funded options, costs are transparent. You have a clearer understanding of the financial aspect, empowering you to make informed decisions about your health.

🔵 Insurance-covered appointments might have limitations on the topics you can discuss, depending on the provider you’re seeing.

🔷 In a non-insurance setup, the focus is on creating a stigma-free, open environment where you feel comfortable discussing intimate concerns, leading to a more holistic understanding of your health.

🔵 Insurance constraints might limit the types of treatments available to you.

🔷 In an insurance-free setting, you have greater autonomy to explore various therapeutic modalities, ensuring your treatment plan aligns more closely with your health goals.

Without insurance constraints, pelvic health therapy becomes highly personalized. My sessions are tailored to your individual needs, addressing specific aspects of your condition comprehensively. A holistic approach considers not just symptoms but potential underlying causes, promoting enduring wellness.
