Common Questions

 
 

Does my insurance cover physical/occupational therapy?


Insurance never guarantees benefits.  If you have questions prior to therapy call your insurance and inquire about therapy benefits.  The clinic will call to verify your therapy benefits.

 

Does Medicare cover physical/occupational therapy?


Medicare does not have a visit limit, they have a dollar limit.  There are two "caps" - one at $1960 and another at $3700.

 

Does Medicare cover soft goods (compression stockings, bracing, etc.)?


Typically Medicare does not cover soft goods.  When a Medicare patient wants to purchase a soft good, an ABN waiver must be signed and payment in full is required before the soft good is distributed. Medicare will be billed following the purchase (and will verify if they will cover the soft good).

 

Does your clinic take Medicaid?


Yes, however there is a $2.45 copay for Wyoming residents, if the patient is over 18. In Nebraska, the Medicaid copay is $1.00.

 

Do you except Tricare?


Yes, with Tricare it has to be previously approved and we will need the approval letter or number. 

 

How much will physical therapy cost?


The cost depends on whether or not you have insurance and if so, what they cover.

 

How long are the treatments?


Treatment times vary depending on what we are treating. The initial examination generally takes one to two hours, lasting longer than the subsequent appointments.

 

How long will I be in therapy?


The duration depends on whether the insurance has a visit limitation, and if not, the duration is talked about with the therapist.

 

How often do I need to come?


This is decided by you, the therapist and the doctor. Usually a patient comes in between two to three times a week.

 

Do I need to have a referral?


Not all insurance companies require a referral but it is recommended if you are not sure. Call your insurance company and check if the do/do not require a referral. With our company we can only see you for 30 days without a referral.
