Advanced Alternatives & Insurance

We provide Medically Necessary Massage Therapy by prescription in order to help you access your insurance benefits.

Massage therapy is increasingly popular among patients seeking relief from pain or injury, and the health care industry is responding. Chiropractors, Osteopaths, Primary Care and other Specialists–can write prescriptions for massage therapy. The prescription should outline the treatment duration and modality recommendations for the specific diagnosis code.

Please provide your HSA/FLEX card at the time of service to remit payment.  We will gladly provide you with a Super Bill for services rendered

Auto Related Injuries:

Your benefits will need to be discussed with your individual claim adjuster and billing procedures will need to be obtained in order for you to receive treatment using PIP Insurance benefits.

Although we will attempt to verify benefits directly with your insurance company, there may be times that you will need to be prepared to pay for your Medical Massage Treatment at the time of your service. For these instances, a Super Bill will be provided for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement

Upon request, Advanced Alternatives will provide you with a super bill receipt for services that can be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement.

A “Super Bill” is simply an invoice for your visit that uses standardized codes for all of the treatments performed. This process requires you, as the patient, to pay the full cost of the treatment at the time of the visit. The super bill can thereafter be submitted by you to your insurance carrier for full or partial reimbursement depending on your policy.
