The Details: The PTS Approach Reversed this Trend, Contained Costs, & Helped More Students
A West Chester Area School District had struggled with rising program costs for ten years. When they began partnering with us, we decreased their therapy expenses for five years in a row without losing a single service. We did this by implementing our proven, targeted approach to school-based therapeutic services and enhancing fiscal transparency.
The Results: School District Continued Saving Money While Partnering with PTS
In our first year of providing occupational therapy (OT) and physical therapy (PT) services, cost per month went down 4.7%. They decreased an additional 5% in the second year. Since 2010, PTS has worked to bring outplaced students back to their home district, while saving this West Chester Area School District tens of thousands of dollars in private placements.
PTS’s effective hourly rate was also found to be 10% lower than the other provider despite PTS having a $7/hour higher bill rate. To this day, the district’s satisfaction with the OT/PT program remains at an all-time high and they have added supplemental speech, nursing, and psychological services.
