Telehealth

  • Do you accept insurance?
    No, Indepth Physical Therapy does not accept insurance. Payment in full is required at time of service. Insurance reimbursement rates are decreasing. Therefore, most PT practices that accept insurance see more than 1 patient at a time or have assistants and techs provide care to patients. Indepth Physical Therapy has removed itself from that system so that you can receive the one-on-one care that you deserve. Although Indepth Physical Therapy does not submit claims to your insurance on your behalf, you may be eligible to submit receipts yourself for possible reimbursement.
  • What will I be expected to do in physical therapy?
    Your active participation both during your sessions and at home is crucial to your overall progress in physical therapy. You will be expected to continually provide your therapist with as detailed and accurate information as possible so that she can customize your treatment program just for you. You will be expected to perform exercises at home, which typically require 10-20 minutes each day. Indepth Physical Therapy recognizes you as a valued partner in achieving your physical therapy goals.
  • Where are you located?
    Indepth Physical Therapy is conveniently located within Core Chicago Pilates in Lincoln Park. Free street parking is easily available.
  • What should I do to prepare for my first session?
    Please complete the registration paperwork prior to your first session. You can securely complete this online using the link below. You can also print out the paperwork and bring it with you to your first session. If you choose to complete the paperwork at the time of your session, please arrive 15 minutes early to avoid cutting into your appointment time. https://intakeq.com/new/aXmFQp
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    As a courtesy to our patients and therapists, Indepth Physical Therapy requires at least 24 hours advance notice for all cancelled physical therapy sessions. Advanced notice provides other patients a chance for treatment time. Failure to provide 24 hours notice will result in full charge for your scheduled session.
  • Do I need a prescription for physical therapy?
    No, you do not need a prescription to be evaluated and treated by a physical therapist in Illinois. However, you will be referred to your physician if your condition is not appropriate for physical therapy treatment or if you are not progressing within 15 business days or 10 sessions.
  • What can I expect at my first session?
    Your first session will involve a thorough evaluation. You can expect to first talk with your physical therapist about your condition. Then she will perform a physical examination that may include assessment of posture, mobility, strength, muscle control, movement patterns, balance, and more. You and your therapist will discuss the findings and recommended treatment plan, as well as begin treatment the very first day. You will likely be sent home with some exercises to perform on your own.
  • What are the rates?
    Indepth Physical Therapy is offering a promotion for telehealth services through the end of June 2020 to help accomodate your needs.
