Does my health insurance cover telehealth visits?
During the COVID-19 pandemic, most major insurance carriers including Medicare, BCBS, UHC, Aetna, and Cigna have expanded their coverage to include physical therapy telehealth visits. You may contact your insurance carrier directly to confirm your coverage or contact our office with your insurance information and we will verify your telehealth benefits for you.
How much does telehealth cost?
Telehealth visit charges are the same as in-person visit charges with the same copay and coinsurance amounts. However, some insurances have even reduced their typical patient financial responsibilities for these visits. You may contact your insurance carrier directly to confirm your coverage or contact our office with your insurance information and we will verify your telehealth benefits for you.
How do I prepare for the telehealth session?
Find a private, comfortable space with adequate space to perform your treatment exercises. You will need reliable internet connection and a device with enabled audio and video capabilities.
