Do you have a high-deductible? Our self pay rates may save you money! As the insurance industry is trending towards higher deductibles, our self pay rates are often comparable - if not less expensive then what many patients would pay using their in-network benefits. Our self pay option reduces administrative expenses and eliminates the complexity of claims processing to save time and money for Viverant, and our patients. Call today to speak to one of our office managers. We can help you decide if utilizing our self pay services would be a great money saving option for you! Viverant, Physical Therapy
