Physical Therapy With Telehealth
How Does It Work?
Technology like the internet, electronic medical records, online patient portals, smartphones and webcams open up treatment and intervention options that may be new to both you and your provider. Virtual platforms allow one-on-one interactions in real-time. Updates of home exercise programs and educational materials. We use the zoom platform and will email you the link at the time of your appointment. All you will do is click on the invitation to join the video and therapy will begin! You may not be able to go to your PT, but your PT may be able to come virtually to you! Rules and regulations vary from state to state, and insurer to insurer. Insurance plans are also being rapidly updated and changed to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, so the best way to find out what is available to you is to contact our office and ask! If you would like to conduct a Telehealth appointment, contact our clinic by calling 408-257-2225 or www.bestphysicaltherapy.com and let us know you are interested. The clinic will verify coverage with your insurance company before your treatment begins. You will then fill out patient paperwork and consent forms for Telehealth visits via email. You will need to set up the video platform through cell phone or computer camera prior to the start of your appointment.
