So, you’re ready to treat patients but when it comes to talking about how insurance pays for OT, you’d rather not.
That is totally understandable. However, how Medicare and insurance pay for therapy has a HUGE impact on what we can and can’t do as a clinician.
I’m Clarice and I’m an OT and Medicare specialist. The #1 question I got asked by patients was, “Does my insurance cover that?” And… when I started I didn’t know how to answer that question. I didn’t feel comfortable asking patients if they could afford therapy and then adapting my plan of care based on their financial circumstances. I didn’t know how to properly recommend discharge plans because I didn’t know why someone could or couldn’t go to SNF vs inpatient rehab.
It felt bad. I felt like I wasn’t a good OT.
So, I did a lot of research. I started gaining confidence and felt comfortable not only making discharge recommendations but defending them! I learned how to advocate for OT services based on insurance coverage. And you can feel this way too.
It’s okay to feel uncomfortable and like you’d rather just focus on treating the patient.
But, you don’t have to feel that way.
