Thank you for choosing MedCare to help you with your rehabilitative needs. As our patient, you are our partner in this process. Together, we will work as a team to reach your goals. At times, the road to recovery may present challenges, but with our expert knowledge and resources, MedCare will be there to make sure your body performs at its peak-today, tomorrow, and beyond.
Depending on your condition, a typical session will last approximately 60-90 minutes. Here are a few important things to keep in mind:
Remember to wear clothes that are suitable for your treatment.
If you are running late, please call and let us know so that we can accommodate your schedule.
Please notify us 24 hours in advance of your appointment if you need to cancel, otherwise you may be assessed a cancellation fee.
It is MedCare policy to protect our patient’s identity and take steps to prevent, detect, and respond to suspected or confirmed identity theft. All new patients and clients will be required to provide valid photo identification (Driver’s License, State ID, Passport, School ID) in addition to their insurance card.
Upon arriving, we ask that you check in with the front desk and have a seat until your therapist meets you. Please do not begin any activities until you receive instruction from the staff.
As a courtesy to other patients, please turn off all cell phones during treatment. MedCare offers additional services to maximize your progress. Many centers offer massage therapy and personal training as well as full service health club amenities. Please inquire within if you would like additional information about these programs and services.
Patient Satisfaction and Outcomes Surveys
We encourage patients to take a patient satisfaction survey on our website.
Once you have scheduled your appointment and have provided insurance information, as a courtesy we will verify your health insurance benefits for physical and/or occupational therapy. Please note that insurance quotes are not a guarantee of benefits or coverage. We encourage you to review and confirm your rehabilitation benefits with your insurance company as they may differ from your standard medical coverage. The following is intended to help you better understand our billing process:
Your therapist will forward your daily charge to our Billing Center.
Our billing center then submits these charges to your insurance company for reimbursement.
MedCare generally receives payment within 30-60 days.
MedCare will provide you with an invoice after your insurance has paid or made a decision on services rendered (usually within 30-60 days).
Evaluation and Follow-Up Treatments
During your first visit, your therapist will conduct an initial evaluation to assess your current condition. Your initial evaluation may consist of objective findings and testing followed by an appropriate treatment plan, encompassing a home-exercise program, and discussing the length and frequency of your rehabilitation. A copy of your Initial Evaluation will be sent to your physician. You and your therapist, in cooperation with your physician, will determine what goals are to be achieved during physical or occupational therapy. To ensure clear and concise communication to your doctor and insurance provider, your therapist will use electronic documentation during each visit to document your treatment and progression toward these goals.
Although it depends on your diagnosis and general condition, your follow-up appointments may consist of:
- Therapeutic Exercises
- Manual Therapy
- Modalities (Electrical & Thermal)
- Review of your home- exercise program and your goals
- Patient Education
- Functional/Activity-Specific Exercises
- Massage Therapy
