In his new book, Medicare and Cash-Pay Physical Therapy, Dr. Jarod Carter touches on everything you need to know about cash-pay services and Medicare.

Medicare relationships include being a participating provider, a non-participating provider or a provider with no relationship with Medicare at all. Although they may seem the same, Dr. Carter explains the difference between a non-participating provider and a provider with no relationship to Medicare.

On the patient side of things, a cash-based physical therapy practice should seek patients that understand that they’ll be paying cash for services. For patients interested in billing Medicare, it may be necessary for a cash-based physical therapy clinic to refer those patients to a physical therapist that accepts Medicare.
