We accept most medical and motor vehicle insurance, including PIP, for vehicular collisions with a prescription from an MD, PT, DO, ND, LaC, or PT. I am in-network with PacificSource, Regence BlueCross BlueShield, and Providence.
Before booking a Medical Appointment, let us verify your coverage and answer any questions you may have. Please complete the ONLINE INTAKE FORM with the insurance information or email caringportland @ gmail.com.
In Oregon, we have “no fault coverage” in vehicular collisions called PIP or
“Personal Injury Protection” insurance . Filing for PIP should not increase your insurance premiums since your claim is medically necessary. The minimum Oregon PIP requirement provides you with $15,000 for reasonable and necessary crash related medical treatment and is available for you to use for up to two years from the date of the crash. You’ll want to keep in mind that some insurance companies cut off benefits after 12 or 16 weeks post-crash. If this happens, you can reach out to a personal injury attorney who will advocate for extension of your benefits.
As part of your medical team, your massage therapist will support you by thoroughly documenting the symptoms you experience as you progress to full recovery.
You can use this at a variety of medical providers, including the Licensed Massage Therapist of your choice provided you have a prescription from a doctor. So your first stop after a collision is to a medical provider. Get your prescription for massage – we recommend asking for 12 one-hour sessions, and suggest booking at least 2 sessions per week. Then you can return to your medical provider for a second prescription if medically necessary. The prescribed number of sessions and frequency depends on how you feel and the communication you have with your medical provider as they assess your progress.
