Anyone can call anytime to schedule a physical therapy or occupational evaluation. Many insurances do not require a doctor's referral to cover physical therapy. If you already have a doctor/nurse/case manager involved in our care, you can ask them for a therapy referral.
Home health patients will always need a referral from their provider before starting care. If you’re not sure which category you fall into or what your best first steps are, feel free to call and we’ll help guide your next steps.
In the state of Texas, therapy and home health care must be signed off by your medical provider. We accept referrals from doctors, nurse practitioners, social workers, case managers, law offices, and more. Referral requirements vary based on insurance, so if you’re not sure who to get the referral from, just give us a call and we’ll help you figure it out. Your provider can use their own forms or fill out one of these. If you have Medicare and are needing therapy, you may come straight in and we can take care of the referral/paperwork internally.
Please wear or bring clothing that is comfortable and will allow access to the affected area such as shorts for a knee problem or short sleeves for elbow issues.
Medicare covers 100% of our services. Many other insurances also cover most, if not all, of the cost of care. To find out how much your insurance will cover, call or email our Home Health team.
Fortunately, many insurances cover all or part of therapy expenses. Many patients are able to get the care they need with little out-of-pocket expense. If you don’t have insurance to cover therapy, we can also accept cash, check, or credit card payments. Our rates vary depending on appointment type and adjustments or payment plans are available for those with limited finances. Please contact our Billing department to discuss your payment options. Under the No Surpise Rule, patients who do not have insurance , want a service that their insurance does not cover, or who are choosing to not use their insurance may recieve an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. No one should be left suffering and without help just because of finances.

Your nurse or therapist will visit as often as necessary. This may be as frequently as every day or as seldom as once every two weeks - it depends on your healthcare needs. Each visit typically lasts from 45-60 minutes.
Medicare uses two criteria to determine whether someone is homebound and as such qualifies for receiving home health care:
If you are still unsure whether you may qualify, you may call our Home Health office at 254-628-7900.
Most initial evaluations last about an hour. We’ll review your medical history and current concern, run some tests, and set therapy goals. Follow-up sessions vary in length. Typically physical therapy and occupational therapy last about an hour, while speech therapy generally runs just under half an hour. We always cater our sessions to our client’s needs and abilities.
This varies widely from patient to patient and depends on your diagnosis and how diligently you practice your assignments at home. Many patients come once or twice a week, severe cases may need to be seen daily, while highly motivated/independent individuals may only need to come every two weeks or so. Once you come to your evaluation your therapist will be able to give you a more accurate idea of how long your specific treatment will take.
Results depend on many variables. Some diagnoses require ongoing care while others can be solved within one to two appointments. At your first appointment your therapist or nurse will be able to give you a better idea of how long they think it may take.
Ask your therapist for their business card with their email address on it. You are welcome to email your therapy questions/concerns anytime and they will reply as quickly as possible.
Yes! If your child is receiving speech therapy at school they can still come to the clinic. In fact, this double-dose of therapy may help them get better faster.
Often therapy is exactly what you need to help relieve the pain. We have hot packs, cold packs, and several therapy techniques that can help lessen inflammation and aggravation in nerves and muscles. If you’re unsure, call and ask to speak with your therapist.
Several of our therapists have specialty training in observing and correcting alignment in the body. In addition to their corrective techniques, they will teach you exercises and postures that will help you re-train your muscles and joints to stay aligned.
