Medical Massage Insurance Billing
Insurance companies provide a few ways to receive massage and manual therapy techniques in the state of Vermont.
They consist of: MVA; motor vehicle accident insurance, as well as Worker's Compensation; a job related injury.
Some Health Saving's Accounts (HSA's) also reimburse for Massage Therapy.
At PLanet Massage, everyone is encouraged to ask their employer or insurance company if medical massage is covered. The more people that ask, the more chance for change in the industry! :)
This work is injury specific (treating specific areas of the body only) to decrease pain, increase healing, and increase range of motion or flexibility.

We provide an HCFA-1500 claim form when needed, with the necessary notations including CPT codes (Current Procedural Terminology) for massage/manual therapy techniques, and diagnostic codes (ICD-10) that are used to report procedures to U.S. medical specialists and insurance companies. Descriptions of codes are published annually by the American Medical Association (AMA).
