Q: Do I need a prescription from my doctor to see a physical therapist?

Colorado is a “direct access” state meaning you do NOT need a referral from your doctor to begin physical therapy. However, there are some insurance companies that do require a prescription including Medicare and Medicaid as well as a few others. Call us to find out if your insurance requires a doctor’s prescription.

Q: Will my insurance pay for treatment?

Most insurance plans do have a physical therapy benefit. Some plans have a deductible that will need to be met first and you will be responsible for the allowed amount. If your deductible is met or you do not have one, you may still have a co-payment or co-insurance. Insurance plans vary so check your benefits or call us and we can help provide a description of your coverage.

Q: Do you accept my insurance?

We are contracted and in network with most major insurance companies. See the list below for some of our contracted insurance providers. If you do not see your provider below, please call us to find out if we are in network. We also offer convenient cash pay rates.

Q: Can I go to the physical therapy clinic of my choice?

Yes! As with anything, you have a choice in where you go for PT. Some things you may want to consider is if your insurance is accepted, location, and personalized attention. If you have any questions, please call us and we will answer them to the best of our ability.

Q: I’ve never had physical therapy. What can I expect on my first visit?

Your first visit will be an evaluation with your physical therapist. Please come 10-15 min early to fill out paperwork. After this, you and your therapist will discuss your history including your injury/condition followed by an examination of the affected body part. This may include ROM, strength, sensation, balance, and functional movements. A treatment plan will be established including a home exercise program, goals, and need for further appointments.

Q: What should I bring with me?

Please bring your prescription (if you have one) and your insurance card if you plan to use insurance. If you have already filled out our paperwork, bring it with you. If your injury is work or auto related, please bring your claim information.

Q: What should I wear to physical therapy?

Wear comfortable clothes that allow access to the affected body part. We do have changing facilities for your convenience.

Q: How long is each appointment?

Plan for approximately 1 hour for your initial session. Follow up appointments will be 45-60 min.

Q: Who will treat me?

Our philosophy is centered around developing personal relationships with our clients to help achieve their goals. We believe the best way to do this is to have a dedicated provider in order to have continuity of care. All care is provided by licensed physical therapy providers.
