Physical Therapy Patient Forms

All the required new patient forms you will need for your first visit are available online to print, right here on our website. We want to save you time when you come to see us, so we give you the option to fill the forms out at home and bring them with you when you come for your initial clinic visit. All you need to do is download the appropriate forms to your computer, print it, fill it out, sign it, and bring it in.  Alternatively, you can come to your first visit 15 minutes early to fill out the forms.

Written Prescriptions and Authorizations for physical therapy are required for all Tufts Health Plans, BCBS HMO plans, BCBS Medicare Advantage HMO plans, and United Healthcare Medicare Advantage POS/HMO plans.  Please have your Primary Care Physician (PCP), not a specialist (i.e. your orthopedic surgeon), to authorize treatment for Physical Therapy (PT) through your insurance company, and fax us a copy when this is complete to: 866-949-9835. The referral department at your PCP clinic needs the first four things below in order to authorize PT treatment (otherwise, your insurance will not pay for your PT treatment) and complete the insurance authorization with your insurance.  Please be sure to follow-up with your PCP every two days until they complete it; most well-managed PCP clinics can do on the spot authorizations over the phone or day of.

A Written Prescription, no more than 30 days old, for Physical Therapy is required regardless of insurance payment type (i.e. health insurance, auto accidents, or workers’ compensation). Please bring the prescription to your first visit or have your PCP fax it to our clinic: 866-949-9835. 

Tip:  What is the purpose of a Written Prescription from your doctor?  1)  It protects your financial interests in the event your insurance company decides to audit your account.  2)  It allows us to immediately start our work by treating the right injury or pain center since we know your diagnosis is 99% accurate since it is coming from a trained professional thereby not wasting your time or ours. 3)  Managed insurance companies that require physical therapy authorizations also demand a written prescription for the continuation of care.
