Deductibles in 2014

It is the beginning of 2014 and it is time to address the cost of being well — The burdensome DEDUCTIBLES AND CO-PAYMENTS. This is a great post by Dr. Eric Christensen, PT, DPT. He lays out a great argument for why you should invest your healthcare dollars of your deductibles with physical therapy treatments.

He makes the case based on:

  • Average costs compared to other medical intervention. (ours is ~$75)
  • Value received for those dollars invested
  • PT’s training as the musculo-skeletal and movement professionals of choice
  • The diverse skill sets that PTs have allowing them to treat many issues.

So take a look at what he has to share and see if you don’t agree. Check it out here.
