Who is responsible for the physiotherapy bill?
- In principle, the responsibility for the bill lies with the patient. In many cases, we can support you by sending the invoice electronically directly to the insurance company. It usually takes insurance between 30 and 90 days to transfer the money to MotionDynamix. Certain insurance companies require you to pay the bill, after which the insurance company will refund your benefit to you. Please note: If insurance refuses to pay the bill directly, the responsibility rests with the patient.
How long does physiotherapy treatment take?
- Treatments covered for by the insurance company last 25 mins. This includes the time needed to prepare, discuss and the actual treatment time. The payment structure (Tarif-Vertrag) for outpatient care for physical therapy has been determined by the Federal Office of Public Health (BAG) and agreed upon by the insurance companies. This means that physiotherapists are legally bound by these tariffs.
