2. How long are Physical Therapy Evaluations and Follow Ups?
Physical Therapy visits typically range from 45-60 minutes for a follow-up session, and anywhere from 60-90 minutes for an evaluation.
3. What do I need for the Evaluation?
You only need to have completed the Intake forms, provided to you, prior to the evaluation. It is advised you wear clothing you are comfortable wearing that is easy to move in.
4. How long is a typical Plan of Care? How many sessions will I need?
Every person has their own needs, with regards to their health, and their individual Plan of Care will reflect that. We offer a variety of options for sessions and treatment plans, ranging from single-session follow-ups, up to 6 and 10 visit Plans of Care.
5. Do you accept my insurance?
Shore Physical Therapy is an Out-of-Network Provider, although we do accept Medicare Part B. This means that we do not accept payments from Insurance Providers.
Being an out-of-network provider means that your care is determined by you, the patient, and the clinician. This allows us the freedom and flexibility to treat patients in a one-on-one setting, ensuring greater outcomes and better results.
We offer to provide you with materials to submit claims to your insurance company on your own behalf; however, reimbursement is not guaranteed in these cases.
6. Do I need a prescription/referral from my doctor to receive physical therapy treatment?
New Jersey is a Direct Access State, meaning you do not need a prescription in order to begin Physical Therapy. The therapist shall inform the patient's licensed health care professional of record regarding the patient's plan of care not more than thirty (30) days, or 10 session visits(whichever comes first), from the date of initial treatment of functional limitation or pain.
7. Can I submit to insurance on my own?
If you would like, we will provide you with a Super Bill, a document that details the treatment services a patient has received from a health care provider, which you will then be able to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
Note: Reimbursement is not guaranteed when submitting to the insurance provider
8. What will happen during my Physical Therapy Evaluation?
The evaluation begins with a patient interview, an essential step to understand the patient's medical history, current health concerns, pain levels, mobility challenges, and personal goals. This dialogue sets the stage for a comprehensive assessment.
The examination then proceeds to a thorough physical and functional movement evaluation, assessing posture, joint mobility, muscle strength, flexibility, balance, and overall mobility. This hands-on assessment helps identify specific areas of concern and opportunities for improvement.
Based on the insights gained from the interview and evaluation, a personalized plan of care is designed. This plan outlines targeted exercises, therapies, and interventions tailored to the patient's unique needs and goals, aiming to restore mobility, manage pain, and enhance overall function within the familiar setting of their home. The ultimate objective is to improve the patient's quality of life and support them on their journey to recovery and wellness.
9. How much will a session cost?
We offer a variety of options for pricing to accommodate many differing needs, with Plans of Care packages offering greater value:
Evaluation Services: $150
Single-Session Follow-Up: $225
6-Session Plan of Care: $1,250

10. Do you offer discounts for multiple sessions?
We do offer Plan of Care packages that contain valuable discounts and savings versus single-session follow-ups. If you decide to purchase a Plan-of-Care package, after you have already begun seeing the Therapist, we will pro-rate your Plan of Care for whatever sessions you have paid for, already.
11. What is your cancellation policy?
We require at least 24 hours notice for cancellation. Cancellations without prior notice will be subject to a charged fee equal to that of the associated session price.
