There are so many reasons and benefits to hiring an Occupational Therapist or Health Counselor privately. Obtaining care outside of a facility can improve your chances of recovery and overall health. Even if you are thinking of supplementing care with an Occupational Therapist or Health Counselor, you can’t go wrong.
Dealing directly with a licensed Occupational Therapist or Health Counselor takes the middle man out of the equation. Oftentimes, healthcare facilities are at the mercy of health insurance companies, not too mention your overall health and eating habits may not be a focus at all.
Many times a patient or client is treated for a specific injury or disease and they only receive treatment a few times a week. The limitations on insurance coverage make it more challenging for a complete and full recovery. An Occupational Therapist with a background in Health Counseling can provide you with overall wellness guidance without worrying about insurance caps or restrictions based on insurance types. Your health and condition is treated one-on-one without insurance restrictions and healthcare facility guidelines that may impact your ability to recover fully.
