Yes, in almost all cases it will. We accept most insurance plans. You might want to contact your insurance company before your first visit to ask about any deductibles and/or co-pays you might have.
Our office will be happy to assist in contacting your insurance company and determining your coverage based on your individual policy. In some cases your insurance company will require pre-authorization and we can assist you with that. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
Do I need a physician's referral for physical therapy?
CT is a direct access state, but our contracts with many insurance companies, states that we must have a physician's referral on file. If you do not have a referral when you first come in, a physical therapist will do the initial evaluation, and fax the evaluation and a referral to your physician to sign.
You also can call your physician, and ask him to fax over a referral for your physical therapy. Medicare patients must come with a referral from their physician, or Medicare will not pay for therapy.
How do I schedule my appointment?
Give us a call and we can set up a time for your initial visit. Sometimes, physicians fax the referral to us in which case we will contact you to set up the initial visit.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule my appointment?
Please remember that an appointment means that we have reserved that time especially for you. If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please give us at least 24 hours’ notice so that another patient may be treated at that time.
How often will I need to attend physical therapy?
Most patients come to physical therapy one to three times a week. Your schedule will be dictated by your physician and your physical therapist base on the nature of your injury. The more committed you are to coming to therapy and to your home exercise program (if given one), the more satisfied you will be with your progress.
How long does each appointment take?
Plan to spend between 30 and 60 minutes in physical therapy. Your total treatment time is sometimes longer or shorter based on your individual needs. Your therapist is responsible for determining those needs based on your evaluation and plan of care.
