Reading PA - Common FAQ or Questions.| Integral Physical Thearapy LLC
Do you accept insurance ?
Physical Therapy, LLC. is an out-of-network provider.
This means that you will need to pay for your visit when
you come in and have your insurance company reimburse you,
if they cover this treatment.
Our clinic does not submit for your insurance
reimbursement. We will provide all the receipts so
you can submit them to your insurance company. Payment is
due at the time of the treatment.
How do I find out what my insurance
company will reimburse ?
call your insurance company in advance and ask for the
details of your insurance plan concerning “ out of
network ” benefits. You should ask your insurance company
" How much they pay for an out of network provider ? " and
" What paperwork they need submitted for your
reimbursement payment ? "
Q. Do I
need a prescription
A. No, not necessarily.
The state of Pennsylvania allows Direct Access to Physical
Therapy Treatments. It means that you are legally permitted
to see a Physical Therapist for evaluation and treatment
WITHOUT a physician's referral (prescription). Treatment can
be rendered for up to 30 days. After that though, you will
need a referral/prescription to continue therapy. (However,
if submitting for insurance reimbursement, it is wise to
have a prescription from the beginning of treatment, since
they often request it.) After the initial visit, our office
will mail a typed copy of your evaluation to the doctor whom
you specify, and that usually encourages them to write a
script saying “Physical Therapy. Evaluate and Treat” or
whatever else they choose to write on it.
The therapists at Integral Physical Therapy, LLC have a
Direct Access license.
When you do ask the doctor for a referral, it can come from
a physician, physicians assistant (PA-C), registered nurse
practitioner (CRNP), dentist or podiatrist.

Does Integral Physical Therapy, LLC
accept Medicare Programs ?
Physical Therapy, LLC is primarily unable
to accept Medicare programs at this time however please
check with our office for eligibility.
What should I wear to my
Proper attire depends on what treatment type is being
utilized. For the initial evaluation/session, to observe
the spine/posture we ask that men have a pair of loose
shorts and women have a tank top and a pair of loose
shorts. At the first PT session we will discuss proper
attire for upcoming appointments.
Because myofascial release should ideally be done on skin,
it is preferred that you are comfortably undressed. A tank
top and shorts are fine, while some people wear bathing
suits. It all depends on how you will be comfortable, and
may evolve with time.
Q. How long
are the treatments ?
Treatments are one hour long. This includes discussion,
myofascial release and whatever other skilled treatment or
exercise program is indicated to help you reach your
desired goals. Your appointment time is yours and is
specifically set aside for you to be with the therapist.
You will not need to worry about signing in and waiting.
It would however be beneficial to come about 5 minutes
early to get yourself settled into the treatment room at
the time you requested.
