- Do you accept my insurance?
We participate with most major health insurance and Workers’ Compensation carriers. Our office staff will be glad to answer specific questions regarding your insurance coverage.
- Do I need a prescription for physical therapy?
While a prescription for physical therapy is not required by Connecticut state law, certain insurance providers will not pay for physical therapy services without a valid prescription from a physician. If you do not have a prescription, we can schedule an evaluation to determine your need for physical therapy treatment and contact your physician to request a prescription if needed. Our staff can help you determine your insurance carrier’s requirements. For more information regarding physical therapy treatment without a physician’s referral, CLICK HERE.
- How long does each appointment last?
Most appointments last approximately one hour.
- How do I schedule an appointment?

- What should I expect at my first appointment?

Your responsibility for payment at each visit will be based on your insurance benefits. Depending on your benefits, you may be responsible for a co-payment or deductible. Our office staff will be happy to give you an estimate of your financial responsibility at your first appointment.
