If your insurance plan is not on this list, please call the office and we will be happy to check your physical therapy benefit for you. Healthcare expenses involve examining bills from the provider and explanation of benefits, which are sent to you by your insurance company. At Cardin and Miller Physical Therapy, we do our best to explain an individual's physical therapy benefit at the time of initial examination. Understanding your Explanation Of Benefits from the insurance company can be difficult. Each EOB can be different, depending on your insurance company. Please understand that payment of your bill is considered part of your treatment. Thank you for understanding that verification of benefits is not a guarantee of payment from your insurance company. Final determination of payment is made only after your claim is received and processed through your insurance company. Cardin and Miller Physical Therapy strives to provide top quality care. If you have any questions regarding your treatment and related charges, please do not hesitate to ask.

- Deductible - A deductible is the total amount your insurance company requires you to pay toward an office visit before it is eligible for payment from the insurance company.
- Billed Amount - This represents the cost of services you received and amount the provider has sent to your insurance company.
