Many patients struggle to find a Workman's Comp massage provider even though it has been prescribed by their doctor and authorized.
Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) May 20, 2014
Body Well Therapy Mobile Massage has formally announced that it is now accepting workman's compensation patients virtually nationwide, and has the ability to bill in-home massage services through workman's compensation programs. The company dispatches qualified state-licensed Massage Therapists to visit injured workers at their residence, offering a convenient alternative to traveling to an outpatient facility.
Services are performed by prescription, and must be pre-authorized by the workers compensation Claims Administrator, whether through a government or private sector program. The company has already provided therapeutic massage services to numerous patients including Federal employees with injury claims through the Department of Labor, along with State and County governments, and private insurers.
"Every year that goes by, more people - patients and practitioners alike - see first hand how effective massage therapy can be in the recovery of those who have been injured." Remarked Dan Melmed, Owner of Body Well Therapy. "However, billing massage through any insurance program is typically not easy, and many Massage Therapists therefore do not offer this option to patients. As a result, many patients struggle to find a Workman's Comp massage provider even though it has been prescribed by their doctor and authorized. Fortunately, we have gained many years of experience in this niche, and I am pleased that we are now able to offer this service to patients across the nation."
In addition to the convenience of having services performed at home, Body Well also provides evening and weekend visits, making is possible for some patients to avoid missing work to obtain prescribed therapy. The company also works closely with patients to find the most suitable practitioner. Whereas an outpatient facility, doctor's or chiropractic office typically has one or two staff therapists, Body Well is able to contract qualified practitioners as needed from a massive pool of available Licensed Massage Therapists in any given locality. Currently the practice of massage is licensed in at least forty-five of fifty states in the U.S.
A wide variety of injuries are commonly treated , including those caused by acute trauma, as well as chronic pain and long-term injury with work-related causes. Diagnosis and medical necessity is initially determined by a physician or other medical authority, with Body Well Therapy, as the patient's chosen provider, executing the doctor's orders.
Founded in South Florida in 2005, Body Well has become a premier on-site massage agency serving multiple metropolitan regions on the East Coast, plus injury patients nationwide. The company services individuals with in home massage, in-room hotel massage, and injury therapy for automobile and worker's compensation claims, plus business clients with corporate chair massage services and event massage services.
