At Edge, we offer telehealth services, a virtual option for physical therapy that allows you to stay at home and participate in electronic video communication to remotely access your physical therapist.
What is Telehealth Physical Therapy (also known as virtual PT, online PT, TelePT, Teletherapy)?
– “Telehealth” Physical Therapy refers to physical therapy services that are provided over a technology platform, rather than by in-person means. At Edge Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation, this means you will be communicating in real time with one of our Doctors of Physical Therapy via a video call, to continue with your current treatment plan.
Is Telehealth Physical Therapy covered by my insurance?
– We are working closely with many insurance companies to determine what is covered by your insurance company and changes to the way we document/bill each visit to provide coverage. Most insurance companies are covering it and if you contact us directly, we will verify your specific insurance coverage for Telehealth Physical Therapy.
What if my insurance does not cover Telehealth Physical Therapy?
– Edge Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation is offering a self-pay rate of $50 per 30 minute session.
Is Telehealth private and secure?
– We are using Zoom for Healthcare through our current EMR, WebPT, for our telehealth platform. We selected this platform to keep you safe, as all of the data is encrypted. Your sessions are anonymous and none of your information is stored. We maintain compliance with HIPAA guidelines. It is also an easy to use platform, making it a win-win!
Benefits of Telehealth:
Flatten the Curve – Reduce Exposure to COVID-19
You and your physical therapist can work together to get rid of the pain, check in and progress your recovery, and get you back to what you love doing all in the safety of your home. Telehealth therapy may also reduce the need for emergency department visits and further reduce the spread of COVID-19. By attending a telehealth appointment, you can continue to take care of your health without having to expose you, your loved ones, or anyone else to COVID-19.
Flexible Scheduling and Time Savings
Save time by eliminating the commute and enjoy flexibility in your telehealth appointments! Here at Edge Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation, we’ll do our best to accommodate your schedule. Whether it’s childcare, work commitments, or both, you can save time and squeeze in an appointment with our providers based on your convenience.
Many insurance companies are covering telehealth services at 100% due to this unprecedented time and the need for essential healthcare services. This means that you can receive the care you need without having to pay out of pocket! We also provide a significantly discounted cash rate if you are not using your insurance.
