There are charges for all Physical Therapy services and supplies. Physical Therapy is in network for all Purdue Student and Graduate Student insurance plans. PUSH PT is also in network with Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield and United Health Care. Currently, PUSH PT is out of network for all other commercial insurers so our charges are kept low to be competitive with in-network costs. It is the patient's responsibility to verify their Physical Therapy or supply coverage prior to therapy.

The following services are available to the greater Purdue University Community
Please note that all of these services have charges associated with them and that PUSH is out-of-network for all insurance plans other than the United Healthcare Student Resource insurance. PUSH will bill your insurance and you will be responsible for the portion the insurance company does not cover.
