Order from a doctor when required by insurance
Depending on your insurance plan, an order from a doctor may be required. Patients with Medicare, worker’s compensation insurance, and motor vehicle insurance will need an order from a doctor. Numerous Anthem BC/BS plans require authorization and/or require an order from a doctor for physical therapy. All other insurance companies/plans must be checked for their requirements. Bauman Physical Therapy will need your current insurance information at the time the evaluation is scheduled. Our office will call to verify physical therapy benefits and determine if an order from a doctor is required. Patients are welcome to call the number on the back of the insurance card to find out as well.

Order from a doctor when required by Bauman Physical Therapy
Patients requesting visceral manipulation or present with abdominal pain will be asked to go to a doctor to be cleared prior to the evaluation. All recent post-op patients will be asked to have an order or restrictions from a doctor.
Orders for physical therapy must be from a doctor that is a Medicare provider. Additionally, Medicare does not allow chiropractors and dentists to write the order for physical therapy. Medicare patients may NOT have physical therapy at an office setting and any type of home health at the same time - this includes home health for conditions not treated in physical therapy and wound care.

Wait Time to be Seen
Our physical therapists are highly trained and have unique specializations. The wait to be seen may be a couple weeks to a couple months depending on the therapist and the time of the year. We constantly look to move patients up to an earlier evaluation date. The majority of patients are offered sooner appointments than their original appointments. Please do not be discouraged. Patients leave our office saying it was worth the wait!
