How Should I Prepare For My First Appointment?
When you call to have us schedule your first appointment, please have your prescription or referral (if applicable) and insurance card handy. This will allow us to confirm your insurance benefits and give you a coverage estimate.
To bring/keep in mind on your first visit:
- Bring any case manager or insurance adjuster contact names, phone numbers, and claim numbers in the event of an automobile accident or worker's compensation claim.
- A prescription (if needed) for physical therapy from your referring physician, ARNP, or PA.
- Insurance information (we will make a copy of your card).
- Complete the online new patient intake. If you are unable to do this, please allow for extra time to fill these out upon your arrival.
- Please arrive 15 minutes early to complete any remaining paperwork, so you can maximize your time in your evaluation or examination.
- Please wear comfortable clothing that allows easy access to your problem areas.
What Type Of Clothing Should I Wear For My Appointments?
- Dress comfortably in clothes that allow easy access for the provider to examine your problem areas.
- For treatments, loose-fitting clothes that are comfortable for gentle exercises and supportive sneakers are often good choices to wear.
How Does Payment Work?
- Your insurance benefits will be determined before your first visit, and you will be informed of what, if any, payment is necessary on your appointment date.
- We accept cash, HSA, FSA, check, debit card, and credit card. We are happy to discuss payment plan options as well. It is our policy that payment is made at the time of service.
Will My Insurance Cover Treatment?
- In most cases, insurance will cover a good portion, if not all, of your treatment costs. We understand navigating insurance can be confusing, so Midland Sports Rehab will be happy to assist in contacting your insurance company and determining your coverage based on your policy.
- For more information, visit our insurance plan page, and please do not hesitate to contact our Midland, MI physical therapy office. We do offer different payment options for your convenience.
What If You do not Take My Insurance/I do not Have Insurance?
