Provider Frequently Asked Questions

How do you onboard and train your providers?2020-07-16T20:41:15+00:00

It is a core belief of ours: an empowered provider is an empowered patient! Once you are accepted as a new MovementX provider, we lean heavily into mentorship and training through our Cohort onboarding model. Typically you will have a group of new providers across the nation that you will go through training with. On occassion, we do accept providers on a rolling basis without a cohort.  During the onboarding process, you will learn the ins and outs of succeeding in the cash based physical therapy model as well as a deep dive into personal development and goal setting.

How much experience do I need?2020-07-16T20:06:56+00:00

We do not have a specific experience requirement to apply to MovementX. With that said, we do find that physical therapists and personal trainers with more experience in the field become succesful more quickly. We believe that to provide the higest quality care to our patients, you should have a very high level of confidence in your clinical skillset. We do have clinical rounds and ongoing evidence based practice discussions as a company, but at this time we are not able to offer the one on one mentorship that is often needed for new graduates to gain clinical experience. If you have a specific niche you would like to explore as a new graduate, we are open to further discussion.

Is MovementX a cash based physical therapy company?2020-07-16T20:55:29+00:00
Many traditional cash based PT companies decide to be exclusively cash based and do not interface with insurance at all. This is definitely an easier option, but at the end of the day if we want to accomplish our vision of “a world healed by movement,” we know that we are not going to do so purely via a cash physical therapy system. We also know that as frustrating as insurance is, it is there for a good reason and improves access to care. Going out of network and aiding in superbill submissions allows us the flexibility to treat in this high level, personalized model while still collaborating with insurance to offload the cost of care and more importantly, expand access to care. MovementX has an insurance team that takes care of all billing and insurance operations so you focus on what matters most: taking great care of your patients and yourself!
What type of patients are seen?2020-07-16T20:07:45+00:00

MovementX providers see a wide variety of clientele. If you know someone who is looking to move their best so they can live their best, then they are a fit for MovementX. We have physical therapists who specialize in orthopedics, sports, neurological conditions, women’s and pelvic health, vestibular conditions, fitness and strength and conditioning, and more. We also have high level personal trainers who help progress our clients through the MovementX continuum to ongoing wellness.  Visit our services page to learn more about the MovementX continuum.

How long does it take to start?2020-06-08T16:44:09+00:00

Once accepted as a MovementX provider you are able to start immediately. The platform and community are designed to quickly onboard and integrate providers to allow you to provide care to help people move their best. The strength of existing provider referral and client relationships, as well as MovementX referral availability, play a major role in how quickly providers begin to see patients with MovementX.

What does the application process look like?2020-07-16T20:36:02+00:00

MovementX is always looking for highly motivated, empowered physical therapists and personal trainers who are looking to make an impact on the profession and help heal the world through movement. At this time we are looking for providers who have the “all-in” mindset. These are PTs and personal trainers who want to make MovementX their next career move and way of life, not just a side gig.

If you feel like we are the right fit for you, please submit a provider application here and we will be in contact with you shortly to learn more about you. If we believe that we are the right company to help you achieve your goals, we will move forward with a series of interviews with our exeutive team members and providers.

Where are providers located?2020-07-16T20:09:01+00:00

Our primary physical therapy markets are located in Washington DC, Portland Oregon, and Boston Massachusetts. MovementX has many additional locations across the US and has the capacity to grow wherever care is needed. We make provider acceptance decisions based on the strength of the referral sources in a certain location and the demand for physical therapy and personal training services. More information will be collected on your application and we will do a market analysis during the interview process. Click here to visit our locations page.  

How do you structure provider payment?2020-07-16T20:12:14+00:00

Because all of our providers offer services in different parts of the country and have various specialties, we allow all providers to set their own hourly rate. We will work extensively with you to make sure that rate is competitive in your market and sustainable for your financial goals. MovementX believes in providers selecting a price that reflects their value and the needs of the communities they serve.  MovementX utilizes a simple fee split for all providers: MX providers keep 70% of their rate while 30% goes back to the company. There are no additional fees or financial overhead you need to commit to get up and running.

Who is a part of the MovementX community?2020-07-16T20:45:11+00:00

Above all else, the most unique value add of MovementX is our community of empowered providers. Our community consists of extremely passionate PTs who are connecting over and innovating within business strategy, clinical care, legislative efforts, markeing, con-ed, and so much more. Even though we are located all across the nation, we can lean on one another to help eachother and the company grow. MovementX has implemented many strategies to help you connect and engage with other PTs in the company, despite our remote work set-up. We truly believe that we are stronger together!

Are providers employees or independent contractors?2020-07-16T20:21:01+00:00

MovementX providers are independent contractors. Being an independent contractor is viewed as being self employed by the government. 

The benefits of being an Independent Contractor

➔ Enjoy the autonomy
We will never tell you where to be or what to do. When we decide to collaborate with you, we do so because we know you are at the top of your game and that you encompass the growth mindset! We trust you with the freedom to treat patients when and where you want. We want you to take time off to enjoy your hobbies and family. We want you to do your notes from the beach or local park. We are here to make sure you spend time doing what makes you most happy!

➔ Set your own hours.
You can set your schedule however you deem best for your lifestyle. If you want to stay home with the kiddos and see 1 patient a week, we support you! If you want to put your hussle hat on and work 40 hours a week, we’ll be here cheering you on!

➔ Earn more money
Being a contractor means you get paid for every hour of work you do. It also means MovementX can afford to pay you much higher than the standard market rate. In addition, federal and state taxes aren’t withheld from your paycheck each month so you take home more of what you earn.

➔ Deduct work expenses
You can save money on taxes by deducting any and all work related expenses. This includes your equipment, gas mileage, cell phone, laptop, home office, and so much more! If you do a good job of tracking deductions, you’ll pay less in taxes than you would if you were an employee at a clinic.

➔ Get paid immediately
You don’t have to wait for a monthly payroll deposit. As soon as you see a patient, you will receive payment within 1-2 days!

➔ Feel supported as you grow
Not sure if there’s a market for your skills or a demand for your services? (Hint…there is!) But we understand getting started can be scary. You can dip a toe into this new model of care with very little risk and we will be here by your side to foster your success.

➔ Pursue multiple companies
While we’d love to have you all to ourselves, you have the freedom to work for any company of your choosing or pursue other entrepreneurial endeavors. We want to empower you to become the very best version of yourself!

Does MovementX provide benefits?2020-07-16T20:23:19+00:00

MovementX providers are independent contractors, which means you are responsible for your own benefits. 

What is the typical caseload?2020-06-08T16:42:44+00:00

Typical caseload depends on the goals of the individual MovementX provider. We never dictate how many clients a provider sees. Providers that choose to utilize MovementX as their full-time equivalent income see between 14-18 sessions per week; providers that see a part-time equivalent caseload with MovementX see between 1-8 sessions per week.

Are there productivity requirements?2020-06-08T16:43:03+00:00

MovementX will never set productivity requirements for its providers. We believe that empowered providers empower their patients. Individual goals and metrics are set based on the individual providers goals and how those goals help to drive MovementX forward.

How do I get patients?2020-07-16T20:30:22+00:00

Our goal is make sure that you reach your goals, whatever they may be. Marketing and patient aquisition is a highly important component of being successful in this model. We expect our providers to lean heavily into marketing and help us help you build your caseload. One thing is for sure, we are not your traditional PRN company where we will passively send you referrals with no investment on your part!

Patient acquisition comes from two primary strategies:

  1. Empowered provider marketing
  2. Shared community resources

MovementX heavily invests in patient aquisition for all our providers including marketing mentorship, development of print materials, email marketing campaigns, pre-established workshops and lectures, search engine optimization for locations and providers, intercompany referrals, telehealth referrals, involvement in AgeProofYourBody, and more.

We also have a very strong and inspirational brand that patients, providers, referral sources, gyms, community partners, and large corporations have connected with. Once you become a provider with MovementX, you will have access to all these pre-established benefits!
