Frequently Asked Questions

How should I prepare for my telehealth visit?

  • Set up a comfortable, well-lit space for your session. Good lighting will ensure a quality picture.
  • Make sure you’re in a private space with some room to move around. A clear open space will ensure you have free range of motion and that you make the most of your physical therapy session.
  • Wear clothes that allow for easy movement without binding or constricting you.
  • Make sure you have a stable internet connection. In order to have the best telehealth experience possible, you must be using a strong, stable internet connection.
  • Keep your hands free. If you can find a comfortable stand for your video device or have something to prop it up against, will free up your hands to take part in the physical therapy session.
  • Remember to use a compatible internet browser. Below is a list of compatible internet browsers for your telehealth session. Whichever browser you are using, make sure to keep it updated to the most recent version.

Does my insurance cover telehealth appointments?

Laws governing telehealth reimbursement vary in each state. In our experience, most health plans have covered these services however, every insurance company is different. We recommend checking with your insurance provider or the clinic prior to your appointment to make sure you’re covered.

Can I self-pay?

Yes. Please check with your clinic to get their rates prior to your appointment.

Do I need a prescription for my telehealth visit?

All 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the US Virgin Islands allow patients to seek some level of treatment from a licensed physical therapist without a prescription or referral from a physician. There may be some restrictions in your state but for the most part this means is that you can now receive physical therapy, even virtually, without a physician’s referral/prescription. Check with your state’s regulations or your clinic prior to your appointment.
