Physical therapy costs can vary significantly based on factors such as location, the specific treatment required, and, most importantly, your insurance coverage. Some insurance plans cover a substantial portion of the therapy, while others might require co-pays or have deductibles to meet. It’s essential to consult with your insurance provider to get an accurate estimate tailored to your plan and we can also help you to understand any out of pocket expenses you may occur before treatment starts.
Dress comfortably. During your physical therapy sessions, it is important to have access to the injured area for effective treatments and we may request that you put on a t-shirt or shorts that we will have available. However, we suggest bringing your own more comfortable clothes. You should also bring along the following to your first appointment:
Health insurance card
No, you don’t always need a doctor’s referral to begin physical therapy, thanks to “direct access.” Direct access allows individuals to seek physical therapy services without a prior referral. However, the specifics of direct access might vary depending on your state’s regulations and your insurance policy. It’s always a good idea to check both your state’s guidelines and with your insurance provider to understand the specifics in your situation.
Before your first appointment you will receive a digital intake form to be completed. By completing that before hand, you increase the amount of time with your therapist at your first visit and decrease the amount of time spent in the waiting room completing paperwork. At your first appointment the physical therapist will perform a comprehensive evaluation and the appointment is typically 60 minutes. This will allow your therapist to begin learning about you, your ailment, injury, your physical therapy goals, and develop a customized plan of care. Follow-up appointments typically last 45-60 minutes.
