Getting Started

It is best to email me at info@Lakeviewpt.com, but you may call our office at (773) 755-9214 to set up your first appointment.   Or, if you are ready to jump right in, set up your account here and schedule your first appointment.

In the State of Illinois, you no longer need a prescription in order to receive treatment but to ensure the best possible insurance reimbursement, you should call your insurance company and ask if they require a script from your physician to be on file in order to maximize reimbursement.

Prior to your first visit, please call your insurance company and inquire about your physical therapy “out of network” benefits- both your out of network deductible and co-insurance.

Please set up your patient portal here.  Once you set it up, you can schedule and reschedule your appointments, view invoices, enter form of payment, retrieve your home program instructions, and download your superbill so that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

There is a PT everywhere app that you can download if you’d like.

Please read my Notice of Privacy Practices – you will be asked to sign a Patient Disclosure Authorization Form and Consent to be Treated when you arrive for your appointment.

FEES

One-hour evaluation is $175. Virtual visits evaluations are $150.

One-hour treatment is $150.

Please note that we keep our fees well below the going rates to accommodate our self-pay and out-of-network clients.  Payment is due on the day of service and your “superbill” will be available in your portal at any time for you to submit for reimbursement.  Your insurance company will reimburse you directly based on your plan’s out of network benefits.

FAQs

Is a physician’s referral required?

  • In the state of Illinois, a physician’s prescription for physical therapy treatment is no longer required- but you may want one on file to maximize reimbursement. 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 “out of network” 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 paying the balance each session.
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 forms of payment do you accept?

  • We accept check, cash, Visa, and Mastercard, Am Ex, Discover. Chase Quickpay, or Venmo is preferred.
