Getting Started

It is best to email, but you may call our office at (773) 755-9214 to set up your first appointment.   In order to receive treatment and to ensure the best possible insurance coverage, you will need a prescription for physical therapy from your physician.  After you set up your first appointment, please fill out the New Patient Information Form online.

Prior to your first visit, please call your insurance company and inquire about your physical therapy benefits.  It is important that we know if pre-certification is required and if there is a limit to your physical therapy benefits.  You should also inquire about your deductible and co-pay or co-insurance responsibilities.

If you are a New or Returning Client, please complete this form online before your appointment.

FEES

FAQs

Is a physician’s referral required?

  • In the state of Illinois, a physician’s prescription for physical therapy treatment is required.  This may be faxed to (773) 755-9216.

How frequently will I need physical therapy?

  • Many chronic conditions are treated most efficiently with weekly one-hour long sessions.  Acute injuries may require just a few visits, whereas long-standing conditions may require treatment over a longer period of time with a decreasing frequency of visits as you become more independent with managing your recovery.

Is physical therapy covered by insurance?

  • Most insurance plans cover physical therapy.  We request that you call your insurance company and inquire about your benefits.  You will want to know what your deductible, co-pay or co-insurance is, as well as any limits to your benefits.  We do not pre-screen your benefits and you will be responsible for any outstanding balances.  Pre-certification is often required and we need to be alerted to this prior to your first appointment.  This is true even for some traditional BCBS PPO plans.
What about Medicare?  
  • Lakeview Physical Therapy, P.C. is a non participating Medicare provider.  Payment is due at the time of service and we will submit to Medicare on your behalf.  Medicare will reimburse you directly.

What is your cancellation/ “no show” policy?

  • We are unable to fill open appointments with less than 24 hours notice and you will be responsible for a $50 cancellation fee.  We will be unable to reschedule you after three of these instances.

What forms of payment do you accept?

  • We accept check, cash, Visa, and Mastercard, or Chase Quickpay.
