Your First Visit

Preparing for Your First Visit


Dress Comfortably! You may want to wear a T-shirt, shorts or sweatpants, and sneakers. Along with an evaluation, you can expect to have treatment on your first day.

Bring your insurance card! Our front office is happy to assist in reviewing your insurance plan. This includes deductibles, copays, etc.

Please be 15 minutes early for your first visit. There are intake forms as well as insurance-specific questionnaires that may need to be filled out prior to treatment. If you would like to fill this out ahead of time, please download the forms below. (This may make it quicker and easier to process you on your first visit. )

Insurance Info

OPT Physical Therapy accepts almost all local and out of state insurance plans including Blue Cross & Blue Shield, United Health Care, TUFTs, CIGNA, Medicare and Tricare. We also accept patients with workers’ compensation / auto accidents. We do recommend that you become familiar with your physical therapy insurance benefits, as individual plans may vary.

Deductible

A deductible is a set amount (i.e., $500, $1000) and must be satisfied before the insurance pays for services. This is an individual amount with a family max. Not all services are subject to the deductible. Not all plans have a deductible.

Copay

This is an amount that a patient needs to pay a provider over and above what their insurance pays. It can be a preset amount or it can be a percentage of what their insurance allows for the service provided.

Provider

This is the person (i.e., doctor) or medical facility (i.e., hospital) that renders the necessary medical services to the patient.

In-Network

Providers that are in contract with you insurance company are in your network. It is always best to check and make sure that a medical provider is “in network” with you insurance company.

Out-Of-Network

This means that the provider is not in contract with your insurance company. You may be covered for services, but need to check with your provider. We will work with you to keep your account current and avoid large balances.
