What should I expect on my first visit?
I will perform a deep dive into what is bringing you in. You will be able to tell me what is going on with your body, changes (if any) you've been experiencing, how you're feeling, sleeping and eating and how all of these variables are affecting your daily life. I will perform a thorough assessment which includes strength, flexibility, joint and muscle restrictions, gait and posture. If specific activities such as lifting weights or running are symptomatic, their form and mechanics may be assessed as well. I will discuss my findings with you and explain how they're fueling what you're experiencing. Treatments during the first visit are based solely on the findings of the assessment.
Do you take my insurance?
In order to best serve you with movement coaching, hands-on work and provide the attention that you need, I have opted not to participate with any insurance companies. Insurance dictates what skills can and cannot be performed (because some cost more than others) which limits our ability to provide holistic care. Without the arbitrary restraints imposed by insurance, we are able to move from rehab to movement coaching to strength work without issue.
Can I request reimbursement from my insurance for Physical Therapy Out of Pocket Expenses?
It typically depends on the insurance you have but the answer is yes. Clients can send in self-claims to their insurance company. You should be able to print forms off from your insurance company's website and send it in along with the superbills (receipts that have the treatment codes) that will be provided upon your request to the clinic. The amount reimbursed or that goes towards your deductible is based completely on your individual plan. If you plan to submit for reimbursement, please call your insurance company prior to visiting Southeast Physical Therapy. Ask about reimbursement for out-of-network physical therapy services and make sure there are no other requirements for you to get started.
Do I need a referral to see you?
In the State of Georgia, since 2015, you can seek the care of a licensed Physical Therapist without a referral from a Physician.
How much does it cost?
This is dependent on your needs, the plan we hammer out based on the findings of your initial visit and your overall goals dictates how long your program will need to be.
