INSURANCES

Rehab Directives is contracted with Medicare, Nevada Medicaid including Health Plan of Nevada Medicaid and Anthem BCBS plus various commercial and workers' compensation insurance carriers.

As each insurance provider is different, so are co-payments, deductibles and certain physical therapy benefits. In order to provide a smooth experience for our patients, insurance benefits and eligibility are verified prior to service, and insurance is billed as a courtesy. Please contact our office for your specific benefit information. We are committed to serving the needs of our patients as a "whole" and are willing to assist you with any questions or concerns regarding your healthcare needs.

A medical prescription from a doctor is required for patients with Medicare coverage.

For those who are not covered by a medical insurance carrier, cash pay fee schedules are available. The cost of a physical therapy initial evaluation, consultation and treatment provided by a licensed physical therapist as well as further treatment fees are determined based on type of patient services rendered.

New Patients

Making the commitment to improving your physical well-being can be difficult, but trusting your physical care to the right person can be even more challenging. At your first visit to Rehab Directives, our team of healthcare professional will give you a full evaluation to develop a treatment plan to achieve your goals and “get back your healthy life!” When you arrive at the clinic, our receptionist will request that you complete the patient forms and make copies of your insurance and ID cards. This paperwork provides us with your health history and information on your condition.
Consultation & Examination
After your consultation, a complete examination testing your reflexes, flexibility, postural, and physical mobility will be performed. However, nothing will be done in our office without your consent.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, a licensed therapist will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including: 
1. How can we help?
2. Treatment goals and possible outcome.
3. How often do I need treatment?
4. What will my treatment cost?
The therapist will also discuss if treatment by other providers is required.
Treatment
Following your initial appointment, we will request authorization from your insurance carrier based on the therapist’s plan of care. This can take from 3-14 days depending on the insurer. We will contact you to schedule follow-up treatment when authorization is received.

Physical Therapy

Therapy Services
Description

Physical therapy or physiotherapy is a healthcare profession primarily concerned with the remediation of impairments and disabilities and the promotion of mobility, functional ability, quality of life and movement potential through examination, evaluation, diagnosis and physical intervention.

Our physical therapists may provide treatments alongside, or in conjunction with other medical or rehabilitation such as occupational therapy. Each treatment plan is tailored to your unique pain condition or injury. In physical therapy, the therapist assesses muscle strength and flexibility, joint motion and stability, muscular and cardiovascular endurance, and the ability to perform activities of daily living. They are experts in movement and function, and focus on treating and preventing injuries.

Physical therapy is physical. Recovery from an injury or painful and debilitating condition requires hard work and commitment to your therapy program. Depending on your injury, your physical therapy program will consist of different types of treatments and exercises. Passive manual therapy treatments such as ice, heat, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation help to alleviate inflammation and pain. Active treatments such as stretching, muscle re-education, conditioning, and strengthening aid in restoring function.

Every patient and the nature of his or her injury or condition is unique, therefore physical therapy treatment plans vary for each patient. Your therapist will tailor your rehabilitation according to your individual needs and abilities.
