Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do You Accept Insurance?
Yes, I am currently in the process of being credentialed with several of the major insurance providers. As of February 2020, I am currently considered out of network while my applications are being processed to be in-network. As they are approved they will be added below. I am offering a discounted cash pay rate at this time, and I will check your insurance providers out of network coverage for you. I will also provide a superbill form, for you to use for potential re-reimbursement. Some of my services are cash pay only because they are not covered by insurance.
In-Network: BCBS (pending), Aetna (pending), Healthchoice, Medicare (pending), Tricare (pending), community care (pending).
2. What does a pelvic floor evaluation involve?
If you come for pelvic floor dysfunction you can expect a general physical therapy evaluation that will include strength, range of motion, and movement analysis. If your intake forms suggest pelvic floor deficits a pelvic exam will be recommended.
3. What does a pelvic exam involve?
Whitney does not use stirrups or a speculum to assess the pelvic floor. She will insert one lubricated gloved finger to palpate the pelvic floor muscle strength and assess for any pain. You always have the right to pass on the internal exam. Whitney will also offer ultrasound-guided pelvic floor assessment in the future which is unique to her practice.
4. How many visits will I need to get better?
Every case is unique, but I recommend scheduling 4-6 visits. We can always cancel the remaining visits if goals are achieved. I typically see clients 1 time a week for an hour visit. Whitney's clinic is unique because she offers one on one visits and you will always see Whitney. In fact, you will be the only client in the office.
5. I live far away and can't travel weekly or I can't afford to come that often, can I still make progress?
Whitney will always do her best to accommodate your schedule, budget, and availability. Whitney offers telehealth and mobile PT if you can't make it into her office.
6. I can't find childcare for my children, can I bring them with me?
Absolutely, Whitney is a mom of 4 and understands the challenge of finding time for appointments. She created her office to be kid-friendly, and with prior notice may even be able to offer in-office childcare. She will even come to your home if it is easier for you.
