When scheduling an appointment we will ask you to follow these simple steps:
Verify network participation and physical therapy benefit information with your insurance carrier, then call our friendly office assistant and schedule an appointment. You will be asked the following questions:
Your physical therapy visits will not be covered by the liable insurer if prior authorization is not obtained. We must have a current physician's referral for workers' compensation claims in order for us to request authorization from your insurance carrier. Authorizations can sometimes take a week or two to obtain, so it is important that you work closely with your employer/HR department, case manager and claims adjuster in order to promptly obtain the care you need.
**Motor Vehicle Accident:
For injuries related to an auto accident with an OPEN claim, please bring with you the following information:
Prior to your visit we recommend downloading, printing and completing the appropriate paperwork:
On your first visit please bring:
Please wear loose and casual clothing to permit evaluation of the involved area.
The first visit can take one to two hours. Your physical therapist will interview you about your present problems and health history, conduct a physical examination, and design a treatment plan specific to your condition.
A report will be forwarded to the referring physician after the initial visit followed by monthly progress reports. If deemed appropriate and authorized by insurance, we will be able to administer treatment during the same visit after the initial evaluation.
We understand that life is unpredictable and emergencies happen. If the need arises to cancel or you wish to reschedule your appointment, we ask that you give us a 24 hour courtesy notice when cancelling or rescheduling appointments in order to allow for the accommodation of another patient in your time slot.

Direct Access or Referral:
In the state of TN you have the right to be evaluated by one of our Physical Therapists without a prescription from a physician. TN law calls it "Direct access". However, some insurance carriers such as BlueCare and Worker's Compensation carriers require a referral. Medicare requires a physician to be actively involved in your physical therapy plan of care. Please check requirements with your insurance carrier prior to making an appointment.
We can accept referrals from Medical Doctors, Chiropractors, Dentists, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants and Podiatrists. The prescription/referral must include your name, diagnosis, referral date and has to be signed by the referring professional.
