In these trying economic times we all need to figure out where we can live the best life while maximizing our resources. A lot of private insurance companies now offer massage therapy as part of their benefit package. Many businesses in Southern Oregon will also offer medical flex plans that will reimburse the recipient if they visit an accredited therapist. I am proud to not only have been the first female accredited and licensed massage therapist in the valley but I worked side by side with the Ashland Institute of Massage to encourage that this important business aspect be reflected in their curriculum. I believe that consumers have a right to choice in not only how we pay, who we choose to give our resources to but also what type of massage works best for our body. Not all therapists are the same and with using your insurance you can discover all the different modalities within our wonderful industry. Now with insurance being used more readily you can find the right therapist and the right modality for you. It is my pleasure to give referrals to many of the incredibly talented massage therapists within Southern Oregon.
Do I qualify for insurance and how can I find out?
Review your insurance plan or check with your plan administrator to learn if your insurance plan covers Massage Therapy. Details regarding the type of services covered, and details regarding the necessary co-pay (if any) will differ by insurance plan. It’s helpful to be aware of your benefits prior to making an appointment. If your insurance does not cover massage therapy, you may still enjoy tax benefits by utilizing your employer’s flex plan (if available) or by itemizing expenses at the end of the tax year. Always check with your tax professional for current tax deductions
on medical services. My rates are calculated on 38.87 per unit basis. A unit is a 15 minute increment.
