FAQ

Does Peak Physical Therapy accept my insurance?

We participate with most major health insurance companies, including worker’s compensation. Please have insurance information ready so we can verify your benefits and get approval from insurance prior to your first visit.

What can I expect from my first visit?

For your first visit, please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork. You can also download the intake forms from our website and bring them with you on your first visit. You will need your license, health insurance card and referral from your doctor. The evaluation itself will take 60 minutes. Follow up appointments are typically between 30-45 minutes.

Can I choose where I want to go for physical therapy?

Absolutely! It is your right to choose any physical therapy provider. This recommendation may come from your doctor, family or friend. Many patients we treat are referred to us from previous patients hoping to help a friend or family member in pain.

Do I need to see my doctor first for a referral?

Rhode Island is a direct access state, meaning if your insurance allows a self-referral, you do not need a doctor’s note to be seen by a physical therapist. However, make sure you check your plan, as many insurances companies require a doctor’s referral on file in order to cover physical therapy.
