What you need to know about your first appointment:
Your first appointment will last approximately 1 hour. This appointment will consist of a thorough discussion of your symptoms and an examination. We will need to know the date your symptoms began or the date of injury. A custom treatment plan will then be designed and discussed. Based on your own personal needs you may then progress to your first level of treatment. Please wear comfortable clothing that will allow us access to the body part being treated.
You will be asked to fill out several types of required forms, so please arrive 15 minutes early for your appointment to do so. Or, if you prefer we have links to these forms below. You may fill these out ahead of time, and bring them with you to your appointment. If you have insurance, please bring your health insurance cards with you.
We accept most insurances. As a courtesy, we will verify your insurance benefits for you once we receive a copy of your insurance cards. If you are not the insured, we will need to know the name of the insured, their date of birth and associated ID number. The results of this verification will be discussed in detail with you. We are happy to verify insurance benefits for you in advance of your appointment. Just stop by one of our offices several days prior to your appointment and we’ll make a copy of your card. You should always know your benefits prior to beginning any course of medical treatment and we are happy to help you with the process.
We are providers for:
Medicare Blue Shield Blue Cross Tri-Care Standard United Health Care
As with all policies, we will verify your benefits for you, but by choosing a contracted provider you know you are maximizing your healthcare dollar.
Worker’s Compensation Cases:
We are currently accepting workers compensation cases. Every worker’s compensation case goes through a standard process of authorization.
To help you understand the process these are the steps:
- Claim must be established through the patient and the employer
- Physician must order physical therapy visits and send supporting documentation for the request
- Request goes to worker’s compensation review board for approval/denial
- Approval for visits is sent to physician and Physical Therapy clinic of choice
- Patient is contacted to schedule appointment
In all cases, we will need a minimum of your claim number, name of Worker’s Compensation Carrier and address and Adjustor’s name and direct telephone number. We are happy to help guide you through this process.
We are currently accepting qualified Attorney/Patient liens for accident or injury claims. We must have the name, address and telephone of the Attorney if one is involved. Please bring this information with you to your first appointment. You will then be asked to sign a Lien along with a signature from your Attorney. Our insurance department will then follow-up with the Attorney to establish a qualified Lien.
Auto Accidents with Medical Payment Benefits:
We do accept qualified Med-Pay cases where medical benefits can be established with the insurance carrier. You will need to provide us with the name, address and telephone number of your insurance carrier, along with the name of your Adjustor.
Our insurance department will then verify your benefits to establish
a qualified Med-Pay account.
Then choose one of these forms depending on the part of the body we are treating:
Arm, Shoulder, Hand Index
Lower Extremity Index (for anything hips and below)
Please feel free to call us with any questions you may have.
