What should I wear to my appointment?

Loose comfortable clothing and preferably sneakers.

What should I bring to my first appointment?

We will need the following information:  current medication list,  medical history, insurance card.

Do I need a physician referral to make an appointment?

It depends on your insurance coverage.  In Vermont we have Direct Access, which means coverage through most insurance companies allows you to access a physical therapist without a physician referral, unless your coverage is through Medicare or Medicaid.   Medicare and Medicaid do require physician referral.  If you have any questions please contact your insurance company (phone numbers can usually be found on the back of your card), if you are still unsure our office staff is fully trained to assess what options are available to you through your insurance.

What do the initials stand for after the therapist’s names?

MSPT and MPT are the same degree but are written differently depending on the University attended. MSPT stands for Masters of Science in Physical Therapy and MPT stands for Master of Physical Therapy.

DPT stands for Doctor of Physical Therapy.

ATC stands for Certified Athletic Trainer or Athletic Trainer Certified.

LMBT stands for Licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist.

What if I am out-of-network?

Depending on your medical insurance carrier, you may have to pay more for treatment. We encourage you to check with you insurance provider for exact costs. We are willing to discuss/explain your coverage with you at any time.

How will I be billed for services?

You will be asked to provide your insurance information at your first office visit and if a doctor has referred you, you will need to have the referral information with you. If your plan has a co-payment, this amount will be due at the time of service.

We require notification of any changes to your insurance, your address, or your place of employment.
