The need for physical therapy doesn’t subside in light of a global pandemic or our now-socially-distant reality, but the team at UM Charles Regional Rehabilitation is ready to help.
Thanks to the ever-evolving array of technology available to us, this experienced team is able to provide physical therapy and hand therapy services to patients without putting anyone’s health at risk during these unprecedented times. Patients are able to complete evaluations, guided exercises, have pressing questions answered, and more — all through telehealth offerings now available at UM Charles Regional Rehabilitation and other UM Charles Regional practices in the area. Read on to learn more.
Insurance Coverage for Telehealth Appointments
In most cases, telehealth appointments are treated the same as in-person appointments; however, specific questions regarding insurance coverage should be discussed in your call with the UM Charles Regional Rehabilitation team member, especially if you’re a first-time patient who is unable to receive a referral from your physician.
In-Person Appointments Are Still Available
Although telehealth technology is making it possible for practices such as UM Charles Regional Rehabilitation to work directly with patients in new, “socially distant” ways, there are simply conditions and treatments that require in-person interaction. With that in mind, select patients can still be seen at the La Plata office, which is operating with additional policies to keep patients and team members safe:
- A masking policy for everyone who enters the practice
- Maintaining recommended social distancing in the gym
- Focusing on extra handwashing and hand hygiene opportunities
- Enhanced practice and equipment cleaning procedures
Whether you’re a new or existing patient, your therapist will help you decide if telehealth options or in-person treatment is recommended.
