The video below, will help you navigate your first visit to Dedham Health Physical Therapy
The set dollar amount that a patient must pay at the time of service. The amount of a patient's copay may vary depending on the type of visit.
The deductible is the amount you pay out of pocket before your insurance will cover any portion of your physical therapy visits. Deductibles reset at the beginning of your benefit period.
The percentage of costs of a covered health care service you pay after you've paid your deductible.
Here is an example:
If your health insurance plans allowed amount for an office visit is $100 and your coinsurance is 20%.
If you have paid your deductible: You pay 20% of $100, or $20. The insurance company pays the rest.
If you haven't met your deductible: You pay the full allowed amount, $100.
Physical Therapy Prescription:
A written order given to you by your doctor to receive Physical Therapy.
The prescription can come from your PCP, Specialist, Ortho, Physician's Assistant or Nurse Practitioner.
Most doctors will write the prescription for a certain number of weeks/visits. Some will leave it up to the therapist to determine a POC (Plan of Care).
RX = Written by the Doctor -> Patient -> Brought to Appointment for Therapist
An insurance referral is required by some insurance plans. Most often this will be HOM Plans.
Referrals can only come from your Primary Care Physician.
If you're unsure if your insurance requires a referral, contact your insurance company.
Referral = Processed by Your PCP -> Insurance Company -> Therapist/Practice
