Will my insurance cover physical therapy?
Typically physical therapy is covered by insurance (see list of insurance above). In most cases, a script or referral is needed from your doctor. Often times you may also need an insurance authorization which your PCP office can assist with. If you have trouble with the authorization we can assist. Insurance companies often have some financial responsibility for the patient (deductible, co-insurance, or co-pay). It is best to check with your insurance carrier for each situation.
Can I pay out of pocket?
Yes, you can self-pay for physical therapy. The current rates are $125 for eval and $85 for follow-up sessions.
How many sessions will I need?
Each injury or surgery may require a different amount of physical therapy. After the initial evaluation, a plan of care is developed. This will give the therapist and patient an idea of what needs to be worked on. At this point there will be a better understanding of how long physical therapy will last. Sometimes we are limited due to the patient’s insurance.
My friend told me physical therapy hurts, is that true?
No this is not true. Most of the time, physical therapy helps reduce pain or discomfort. Typically, patients feel better when they leave as compared to when they came in. With that being said, there are some circumstances where there may be some soreness during the session. If you are still concerned about this be sure to bring it up during your treatment.
