Office Procedures at Fairhope Physical Therapy
Referral and Prescription Policy Rehabilitation services are available by physician referral. After you see your physician and obtain a prescription, call to schedule an initial evaluation. (Your doctor’s office may schedule this initial appointment.)
Initial Visit and Evaluation During the initial evaluation, a history will be taken, an assessment will be made, and a treatment plan (goals, frequency and duration) will be formulated. Please wear loose fitting clothing appropriate to the body part being evaluated. Please complete our Patient Forms and bring them with you to your initial visit. Be sure to bring insurance cards, doctor’s prescription, and photo identification. Please call 24 hours in advance if you must cancel or reschedule your appointment.
Insurance and Scheduling Due to insurance restrictions, your condition will be evaluated at the time of your initial evaluation. However, your treatment may not begin until insurance approval has been received. Make every effort to attend therapy sessions as scheduled to receive the most benefit from treatments. Canceling or missing appointments may decrease the effectiveness of the care received. Fairhope Physical Therapy reserves the right to discharge a patient from care if that person misses three or more scheduled appointments without notification.
We accept most insurance including Medicare, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Human, Aetna, Cigna, United Health Care, Health Springs as well as Worker’s Compensation.
