Is a physician referral required before starting physical therapy?
For many patients, the answer is no. Many insurances allow you to come directly to PT without needing a physician referral, known as direct access. This is great for patients because research shows that direct access results in reduced medical costs, quicker results, and has no adverse risks. Some insurances still require a physician referral. Call us at (405) 735-8777 and let us help you determine if a referral is required.
Will my insurance cover my treatment costs?
Every insurance is difference, but most insurances cover at least a portion of your physical therapy costs. Our front office staff verifies and explains your insurance benefits at your first visit. Unlike other clinics, we won’t hide your costs from you and surprise you with unexpected bills. We understand that everyone’s financial situation is different and we offer several payment options to ease your burden.
How long will my physical therapy appointment last?
Typically, an initial evaluation will last 1.5-2 hours total. Follow up appointments last anywhere from 1-1.5 hours, depending on the patients individual needs.
What should I wear to my appointments?
Our physical therapists utilize a variety of hands on, manual therapy techniques which may require patient to expose the treated area. As experts in this field, we will allows maintain discretion and place the patients comfort level as our highest priority. We also have private treatment rooms (as needed). Because our patients will be participating in physical activity, we recommend wearing comfortable clothing that will allow you to move freely during exercise. We have private bathrooms to allow you to change into clothes as needed.
