Do I need a referral? What is the difference between a referral and a prescription?
A referral is the initial authorization you receive from your primary care physician. It is usually required by an HMO insurance plan, but may not be required by other types of insurance plans.
A prescription states what the treatment is and how often your are to receive the treatment. For example, a prescription for a specific medication will tell you the dosage - or strength - of the medicine and it will tell you how often you are to take the medication. A prescription for therapy may simply state "evaluate and treat," or it may be much more specific as to the what condition is to be evaluated and what sort of treatment is to be given.
Rehabilitation Services at Rose Hill requires you to present either a referral or a prescription - depending upon your insurance plan requirements. It is your responsibility to make sure that you have the documentation necessary to satisfy your insurance carriers requirements.
How long is each session?
We ask all patients to arrive 15 minutes prior to the initial visit to complete the required registration and clinical preparation paperwork. The initial visit is scheduled for one hour duration. Visits thereafter are scheduled according to need and will be 30 to 60 minutes in length.
What happens if I need more therapy than originally approved by my insurer?
Our therapists and reimbursement specialists will complete the necessary steps (including contact with your physician and insurance paperwork) to obtain additional approval.
How do you handle co-pays?
Payment is expected at the time of each visit, however, if you have financial difficulties, one of our Financial Counselors will work with you to provide options.
