    4 Tips for Determining How Much to Charge for Your PT Services

    During school, physical therapists receive extensive training in clinical reasoning, patient safety, body mechanics, caregiver education, and other essential skills. But one thing we don’t learn much about is business . Most of us receive very little training on practice management, and we certainly don’t learn anything about how to set our prices. Pricing is a complex issue in PT. It’s difficult to know exactly how much we should charge for our services. Price too low, and …

    9 Creative Physical Therapy Clinic Names

    What’s in a name? If you ask any expecting parent, it’s a lot. After all, a name is something most people carry with them through their whole lives, and it can have a lot of social implications. For many PT practice owners, their clinics are their babies—which makes choosing the right name even more important. After all, it should be memorable, simple, and something that delivers the right message to the clinic’s target audience. So, to give …

    Everything I Wish I’d Known Before Opening My PT Practice

    A little more than three years ago, Kaci Monroe realized her dream of opening her own physical therapy private practice (to learn more about Kaci’s entrepreneurial journey, check out this blog post ). Since then, she’s grown her small, Bigfork, Montana-based clinic into a very successful—and very busy—operation. So busy, in fact, that she decided to open a second location this past year. Oh, and she also remodeled a house, had a baby, and sped her way …

    6 Biggest Factors Impacting Your PT Clinic’s Cash Flow

    Most of us went into physical therapy so we could make a difference in our patients’ lives. PT can be extremely fulfilling and rewarding—and for many of us, owning a practice has been a lifelong dream. Once that dream becomes a reality, however, it can be a sobering experience. Bills need to be paid and bottom lines need to be met. It’s not always easy to bring in enough money to cover cancellations and billing snafus, not …

    The ultimate rehab therapy business summit is only two months away, so we here at WebPT have kicked it into high gear adding finishing touches to the event. Case in point: We just rounded out our biggest speaker lineup yet with two heavy-hitting keynotes: Stephania Bell (PT and Injury Analyst for ESPN) and David Elton (Senior Vice President for Clinical Programs at Optum). While those keynotes are impressive, they’re merely cherries on top of a one-of-a-kind experience …

    3 Common Rehab Therapy Credentialing Mistakes

    Proper credentialing is a crucial step in running a successful physical therapy clinic. If your clinic and therapists aren’t properly credentialed with insurance providers from the get-go, your bottom line might suffer. And it’s not just new clinics that are susceptible to making credentialing mistakes; in fact, any clinic that has gone through a change in ownership, rapid growth phase, or any other transition might find itself mired in credentialing headaches. But before we get to the …

    Physical Therapy Billing Open Forum

    It’s a bird; it’s a plane; it’s—a physical therapy billing expert? If you’re a physical therapy practice owner, manager, or biller, then you’ve probably wished for a billing superhero at one point or another. After all, while the PT billing process seems fairly simple on paper—therapists provide services, submit the CPT codes for those services, and receive payment—any seasoned pro knows it’s anything but. Rejections, denials, and reimbursement delays are more common than any of us would …
