FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

WHAT TYPES OF HEALTH INSURANCE DO YOU ACCEPT?

DO YOU TAKE MY INSURANCE?

Dorset Physio is In-Network with most local Vermont plans such as: BCBS of VT (most BCBS out of state plans are covered, please contact us for insurance verification), MVP, UHC/Optum (United Healthcare), Medicare, Medicare Supplement Plans (Part B), Green Mountain Care (VT Medicaid), Auto, and Worker's Compensation.


Currently we are Out of Network Provider with other insurance companies that are not on the above list such as CIGNA or AETNA. We recommend you contact your insurance company to determine if you have Out of Network Benefits for Physical Therapy. Co-pays and Payment are due at time of service. Cash Pay options are available if your insurance does not provide out of network coverage or benefits if you still wish to come to our clinic, or we can assist in finding you other options in our region. Dry Needling is not covered by any insurance carrier at this time. For more information about insurance and billing, please call our office at 802-867-7056 our email billing department at dorset.meg22@gmail.com

DO I NEED A PHYSICIAN’S REFERRAL?

Vermont is a Direct Access State, which means if you are a Vermont resident and have a Vermont Based Commercial Insurance Plan (ex: BCBS of VT, or MVP) you do not need a referral from your MD, DO, PA, NP, or ND. However, if Dr. Gaiotti reviews your case and feels you need to see a physician before starting PT we will request you see your primary care provider or specialist first before we schedule your evaluation.


If you have Medicare or a Medicare Advantage Plans Medicaid (Green Mountain Care), Worker's Comp, Auto, or any Out of State Plan we require a referral a Dorset Physio.
