What should I do

It’s 300$ per visit but if they don’t approve it I’ll do it…

insurance companies do not really care about patients… or whatever…

There, is that better? :stuck_out_tongue:

Cant you haggle the price?

Is it through the hospital still?

Maybe find a different therapist, and see what they can do for you

$300:eek Sounds a bit much to me

My physio cost me $70 per session, so someones ripping someone off

It’s at the University of Michigan Hospital… I asked the price today… And I need to do something like 20 more… .which is 300*20=6000$
It better gets approved…

Ok, now a serious couple of question. What happens if you don’t get what you want? What happens if your arm only heals to 95% or 90% or less?

IS the 20 more YOUR conclusion or theirs? If its theirs then they should approve it, if its yours…

, so if they dont approve it find a private physiotherapist and get some prices

I’m sure you’ll find one that doesnt charge so much.

Good luck

It will heal 100%. I read it in a scientific paper. that there was a Muai Tai athlete that healed 100%… I do way much better than any other patient… and I deal with pain well… I will get my old arm back…

My physical therapist asked for 20 more and the insurance company didn’t approve them… It was my physical therapist’s suggestion…

aaaaaah, now its making sense…

Of course he’s gonna want 20 more sessions,at $300 a pop, your probably financing his new car

Ask HIM flat out, if the insurance doesnt cover it, could he drop his price to accomodate you,

Bet I know his answer

and if anyone isn’t honouring their HIPPOCRATIC oath, its HIM

(I still cant get over the $300, how long does a session last)

It lasts an hour… The money do not go to her… but to the hospital. I don’t really know how much her salary is…
I’m not sure if I can ask the hospital to lower the price but I can always try…

he slip[ped on a wet floor because the cleaning company the store hired didn’t put out a sign.

I thought as much. I would be looking for a private practitioner

Suicide = not a joke.

Pretending to be suicidal to get help for your arm (?!?!?!) is boggling my mind. You do know there are ACTUALLY suicidal people out there whose help you are selfishly taking because you don’t want to pay for your own physiotherapy? Get over yourself! If you fell, that’s your fault. I trip over my own feet all the time. It would never occur to me that I should sue the manufacturer of my carpet for not making it smooth enough or the builder of my stairs for making them too steep. Personal responsibility is a lovely thing, more people ought to have it.

Also, law suit is a noun, not a verb. You will sue them, not law suit them.

[B]It would never occur to me that I should sue the manufacturer of my carpet for not making it smooth enough or the builder of my stairs for making them too steep.

[/B]Ha, me either, but maybe that coz we’re not living in America, land of the lawsuit

Totally true!! After we sue for our carpets and stairs, we can sue McDonald’s for making us fat. And book printers for the paper cut I got just this morning. I’m gonna be so rich!

I had no idea you lived in MI let alone around Ann Arbor

You are going about this all wrong. You may have blown it by acting like a psycho threatening to commit suicide.

Whoever gave you that advice is a moron…

I assume you have an HMO. How long has it been since your primary and specialist asked for more PT?

And depending upon the response from the place who did PT it may be valid to not continue. There is a point where you do not gain any more.

If this was an accident and somebody else was at fault then go after them
