Question: My name is J.B. ….I wanted to ask your opinion about insurance and your usage at Thrive. I have read many different articles about the risks and benefits of accepting insurance at a practice and was wondering if you have been doing fee for service without dealing with third party payers? Any insight on this matter would be helpful!


Answer: Hi J.B., Thanks for your question. While self-pay sounds like a great thing, for today’s practice, building a practice using clients health insurance seems to be the way to go, as more people than ever have health insurance, and they want to use it! We hope this helps!
