If you’ve been injured on the job, your workman’s compensation medical claim generally covers in-home therapeutic massage! Body Well Therapy accepts private, local, state and federal workers compensation insurance and typically requires no out of pocket co-pays. We are a registered provider for the U.S. Department of Labor Office of Workers Compensation Programs (OWCP) and have worked with numerous local governments plus private work comp insurers and care management networks such as Corvel, OneCall and Sedgwick.
Whether you are a patient searching for a massage service that can work with your existing claim, or a Nurse Case Manager or other care coordinator seeking a provider to work with one or your patients, we are here and ready to get started!
Since 2005 we have been providing quality, customized massage therapy to those who have been injured. We have two primary goals in working with each patient: 1. Provide effective therapy by matching each patient with a therapist that is not only qualified on paper, but also well suited to each patient’s individual needs and 2. Make the process of getting therapy as convenient and straightforward as possible by diligently handling all of the administrative requirements including pre-qualifications and authorizations.
Beyond accepting workers compensation insurance for massage, Body Well further distinguishes itself by offering licensed injury massage therapy at home where it is most convenient for patients. What’s more, our skilled licensed massage therapists travel to see patients days, evenings and weekends for the ultimate convenience. No worrying about taking time off from work, juggling appointments or borrowing a car. We go to you when it fits with your schedule!
Our in-home massage treatments are a complete 60 minutes on the table. Treatments for a variety of mild to severe injuries including back, shoulder, wrist and neck injuries, headaches and other soft tissue strains and spasms may include: standard massage and manual therapy, deep tissue massage, stretching, trigger point therapy, neuromuscular therapy and/or myofascial release. Our therapist will work with you to determine the most effective techniques.
Massage therapy is widely recognized as effective physical medicine that can help rehabilitate those who have been injured back to pre-accident health. In some cases, it can also be used as a form of natural / drug-free pain management. Massage not only aides the directly affected or injured areas, but it also can help the body to heal holistically by helping it get back to its’ natural state of balance and well being. This is one reason why massage therapy is a great complement to other therapies, including chiropractic and physical therapy. In many cases your insurance benefits will allow you to continue doing these therapies in tandem with massage as needed.
Getting Started with At Home Workers Compensation Massage Therapy
As indicated above, one of our goals is to make things as simple as possible, despite the complications inherent in workers compensation medical claims. Our patients have a lot to do with how easily we can achieve this goal. The most important thing to avoid delays is to provide us as soon as possible with all of the requested information so we can get things rolling. Usually we will email a standard form to be electronically signed, along with an email specifying what information we need to proceed (your claim details, prescription, schedule preferences, etc).
As soon as we have the required information, we will verify the claim and formally request an authorization to treat you. Once we obtain that, we will assign a therapist based on your indicated preferences and get started! If things work out, you can schedule the next visit with your therapist on the spot! Keep in mind that if for any reason you ever wish to use a different therapist, do not hesitate to let us know. We want to provide the best match for you. You are not stuck with whomever we happen to have available. In most regions there are many massage therapists who enjoy providing this type of therapeutic bodywork, so if it’s not a fit, we will keep working until we find one! (Although we have a very good record of getting it right on the first try)! You are also welcome to “bring your own” therapist! In most cases, as long as your existing massage therapist is properly qualified and insured, we can sign them up to work with you under our authority.
If you and your doctor or case manager agree that massage would help your recovery and you would benefit from the convenience of our in-home services, please call us right now so we can answer your questions. With all of the requested information in hand, we can obtain authorization in as little as 1-2 business days! To avoid delay, if possible please request that your physician’s prescription indicates a diagnosis and frequency of massages prescribed (e.g. 2x/week x 8 weeks). If you have an existing authorization please fax is to us at (888) 929 9355.
