How do I submit a claim to my insurance company if I am out of network?The process is easier than you might think!!! If you are interested in knowing your level of “out of network” reimbursement, please call your insurance provider and ask about their coverage for “out of network physical therapy”. This is solely the responsibility of the patient. Upon request, we can provide a superbill or itemized bill with all the necessary information to submit it to your insurance. This is the sole responsibility of the patient to do so.
What can I expect at my first visit?A one-on-one evaluation where we will discuss your history, concerns, and symptoms. After your provider will do an initail assessment which typically includes an assessment of posture, pelvic alignment, external pelvic girdle and hip muscles and an internal pelvic floor muscle assessment to assess the muscle strength, tone and function of your pelvic floor muscles. An internal vaginal and/or rectal muscle assessment may be performed with your written and verbal permission if you are comfortable. * internal pelvic assesments are NOT performed vitually
