For physicians who’ve yet to experience first-hand the advantages of Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT) and how it works, it’s easy to dismiss it. Too often, physicians who consider adding EPAT to their continuum of care come across a troubling myth:
#1 Myth: “If it’s not covered by insurance, my patients won’t pay for it.”
If you are pondering the validity of the myth, we’re here to shed light on the facts. It’s essential to gain perspective on actual patient beliefs on EPAT. Let the words of your medical peers put your concerns to rest:
You Can Trust the Words of Physicians Who Use EPAT Therapy
As you can see, physicians who use EPAT therapy regularly in their practice have handily squashed the myth that patients won’t pay out of pocket for evidence-based, alternative treatments like shock wave therapy. Below are some key takeaways:
- Patients choose EPAT because it’s evidence-based and safe.
- Patients who suffer from chronic pain will pay for effective, innovative treatment.
- There’s a hefty price associated with the loss of mobility and quality of life--patients will pay for relief.
- Patients who opt for EPAT have often experienced treatment failure with traditional methods.
- EPAT is an excellent alternative to surgery.
- When patients see and feel results with shock wave therapy, paying out of pocket becomes a non-issue
- Patients who seek EPAT by name are ready to pay.
- EPAT is non-invasive and often the most cost-effective treatment choice.
Suffice it to say; it’s best not to rely on the faulty assumption that patients will not pay out of pocket for EPAT therapy. If it behooves a patient to pay for a treatment that will provide them the outcome they seek, they will pay without hesitation.
