Do I need a prescription to receive physical therapy?
No. New York is a “direct access” state and you do not need a prescription from your physician to receive out-patient physical therapy. However, some insurance plans do require you to have a prescription from your physician in order for them to pay for physical therapy services. Feel free to call our office and we can verify your insurance requirements. Our physical therapists are highly trained health care professionals and are well qualified to evaluate a patient’s condition, assess his or her physical therapy needs and, if appropriate, safely and effectively treat the patient. Physical therapists recognize when it is appropriate to refer patients to other health care professionals for consultation if needed.
What should I expect during physical therapy?
Your physical therapist will review your medical history and perform a physical evaluation. Please wear appropriate clothing. Your therapist will then discuss with you their findings and suggested treatment plan. You will also develop goals for physical therapy together. You will most likely be given a home exercise program.
How long will my visits last?
Your first appointment will last approximately 60 minutes. Your following appointments will last around 60 minutes or more depending on your condition and treatments.
What if I do not have insurance coverage?
No insurance, no problem. If you do not have health insurance coverage or in some cases, have a high co-pay or co-insurance amount, we do offer a private pay option for physical therapy sessions. It is difficult for us to provide an estimate of costs until your physical therapist performs an evaluation and determines what treatments are appropriate.
Do you accept my insurance?
New Age Physical Therapy is contracted with most major insurance networks and carriers. Please see our list for current accepted insurance networks and carriers. If you do not see your insurance carrier listed, please call our office to confirm. Our front office staff is more than happy to verify your out-patient physical therapy benefits through your insurance carrier prior to scheduling so you are aware of number of visits allowed, co-pay or co-insurance and/or limitations within your policy.
Why should I choose New Age Physical Therapy over other physical therapy clinics?
