Physical Therapy Policies
New Patients: Although not legally required in Oregon, a referral from another medical provider may be required by your insurance company if you will be seeking reimbursement for services. If you have one, please bring your valid physical therapy prescription, plus complete all of the forms listed on our website prior to your appointment. If you donʼt have a written referral, we ask that you place a call to the provider’s office to request a script be emailed to us at email@example.com. It should read “Physical Therapy Evaluate and Treat PRN”.
Returning Patients: For returning patients, please bring any new prescription if you were referred or have it emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also complete a new Outpatient Intake Form on your new problem and an updated Patient Insurance Worksheet if any content has changed.
Fees/Payment: We’re able to keep our fees low by eliminating the major cost associated with insurance billing and other high overhead typical of traditional physical therapy clinics. In addition, we charge a simple flat rate per session (compared to other clinics that tack on charges based on specific treatments provided).
Payment is due in full at the time of each session via cash or credit card only. We cannot accept HSA cards, but we can help you get the appropriate paperwork for reimbursement.
Insurance Policy: Studio X Fitness is an out-of-network provider for all insurance companies. The reason we don’t contract as in-network with insurance companies is because we’ve found the fees for our services, even while out-of-network, to be less expensive than seeing an in-network provider. This is because nearly all insurance plans will have out-of-pocket charges for care, regardless if you see an in-network or out-of-network provider. It’s also important to note that physical therapy is categorized as medical specialty by insurance companies, and therefore subject to an annual deductible and copay at time of service.
Prescription/Physician Referral: Even though the state of Oregon has direct access to physical therapy, your insurance company may require a prescription before they provide coverage. Please bring a current (within 30 days) valid prescription from whichever medical provider your coverage requires (medical doctor, osteopathic physician, chiropractic physician, podiatric physician and surgeon, naturopathic physician, dentist, physician assistant or nurse practitioner) if you intend to seek reimbursement. We do not participate with Medicare but we would be happy to refer you to clinics that do. We also cannot provide service for any Worker’s Compensation claims.
Treatment Sessions: An initial examination will typically take 55-60 minutes and follow up treatment sessions 50-55 minutes depending on your individual needs. For all sessions, please wear or bring clothes appropriate for exercise and that allow us to examine and treat the affected area. T-shirts, shorts, yoga or sweat pants, tank tops, and sports bras are some good choices.
Medical Information/Medical Records: We understand that your present and past medical information is personal. We are committed to protecting information about you. We create a record of care and services you receive at Studio X Fitness that is maintained electronically via WebPT. This allows for us to remain free of paper charts, that are prone to damage, loss, or security concerns. We need these records to provide you with quality care, to comply with legal requirements and to meet your needs for reimbursement. This notice applies to all of the records generated: law requires us to:
Make sure that medical information that identifies you is kept secure.
Give you this notice of our legal duties and privacy practices with respect to medical information about you. Please make sure you have completed your intake forms fully to ensure that your medical record is complete.
We welcome existing clients to add physical therapy to their current program. After the initial consultation and follow up members can add physical therapy to their existing personal training package for an add-on price.
