WHAT IS TELEPT?
Our TelePT platform is an online video/audio HIPAA compliant web-based portal providing a virtual one-on-one encounter with one of our physical therapists. This portal enables you (the patient) and your physical therapist to have a live interaction, and receive instruction, education, demonstration and guidance about your respective orthopedic condition.
WHAT DO I NEED?
We strongly recommend that you download our exercise app COREEX on your mobile devices as we will be referring to this for your exercise program. We also recommend that you use our Core Performance PT Youtube channel to receive insightful visual and auditive instructions on a wide range of exercises. Finally, it is preferred that you have certain pieces of exercise and treatment equipment available to utilize during your live virtual treatment session and for your ongoing home exercise program.
For TelePT to function optimally, you will need:
- High speed internet connection
- A computer with a camera and audio
- An open space for you to move around without clutter
- Adequate lighting
- Comfortable exercise clothes that reveal your limbs (ie: sports bra, tank top, leggings, shorts, no socks or shoes)
- No background noise in your surroundings.
DOES INSURANCE COVER THIS?
New regulations in the state of California have allowed certain insurances to cover the cost of these visits. Prior to your appointments, we will need to verify your insurance to find out if this is a covered treatment. Also, based on your insurance coverage, you will have a copayment or a deductible that will apply which means that we will need your credit card payment information on file to process payments.
Just like in-office physical therapy, there could be a visit limit associated with your insurance coverage therefore the time spent with your physical therapist on the virtual platform will depend on the allowance from your insurance. We offer cash pay options as well for those that need more time and treatment.
