Telehealth Services
If I am having home care, can I still come to outpatient physical therapy?

Unfortunately, we can not see a patient that is currently under any sort of Home Care or Home Physical/Occupational Therapy. Insurance companies do not cover both services at the same time. You need to be discharged from Home Care or Home PT/OT before beginning out-patient physical therapy.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are now offering telehealth services via Zoom. All patients should confirm that they are eligible for telehealth services through their insurance provider before requesting this service. If you need help confirming your eligibility we would be happy to help you navigate this process. 

Cancellation and No Show Policy

A cancellation with less than 24 hour notice, arriving 15 minutes after appointment time, or missing appointment will result in a charge of $50.00. An intake form is provided during your first appointment that provides this information. 

How do I know if my insurance will pay for physical therapy?

As a courtesy to our patients, we will verify your insurance policy coverage prior to your initial examination. Depending on your insurance plan, you may have a copay, deductible, annual cap on number of visits, etc.

 

If your plan does have a high deductible, we will collect for the initial examination and revisits until the deductible is met.  We will be billing your insurance for your services.  

 

All uncovered charges are the responsibility of the individual and payable to the office at time of service.

We encourage all of our patients to check with individual's policy to be well informed of their benefits as well to avoid any surprises.
