Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept insurance?

IPT is made of two distinct practices. 

Centerline Physical Therapy - In-Network

Integrated Physical Therapy - Out-of-Network

Centerline PT does accept most major insurances and we will help you with verification and authorization. Please know it is ultimately your responsibility to manage your insurance company and your benefits. Please be aware that your insurance company may only cover a portion of your service. You will be responsible for the difference. Be your own advocate and allow us to help guide you.

Integrated PT is an out of network provider. There is a fee for the service provided. Why? We would not be able to provide the high level of care and individualized treatment that we do at the low rates insurance companies are currently willing to pay for physical therapy treatment. By creating a personalized program that includes skilled manual therapy techniques and corrective exercises that will result in faster recovery time and improved outcomes, you will have a more personal and private experience in this setting. 

For physical therapy we will show you how to print claims forms so all you need to do is put it in the mail! You may be able to find out in advance what the details of your insurance plan are if you call your insurance company and ask about your “out of network” benefits.

Do you take Medicare?
Yes we do accept Medicare. Please have your birth date and Medicare number and supplemental insurance information ready when you call to make your first appointment, so we can check your benefits for you. Be aware of the changes and updates to Medicare. There are limitations to being seen in an outpatient facility and please ask our office to explain these updates and changes to you
What is the cost of the initial evaluation and treatments?

Centerline PT - In - Network Visits

Depending on your insurance, your cost/co-pay/co-insurance/out of pocket will vary. Please have this conversation with our front desk before you arrive, so there are no surprises. An initial evaluation is one hour of comprehensive evaluation and treatment. This is a full hour of one on one attention from your physical therapist!

If the issues you’re facing are more complex or you just want more time, we offer 1-2 hour immersions.

How long are the treatments?
Treatments are one hour long. This includes discussion, myofascial release and whatever other skilled treatment is indicated to help you reach your desired goals as well as exercise and/or progression of the home program. It would be beneficial to come about 5 minutes early to get yourself settled in your room. In our office you also will not need to worry about signing in and waiting. Your appointment time is yours and is specifically set aside for you to have a full hour with the therapist at the time you requested.
What should I bring to treatment?

On your first visit make sure to bring your insurance card and drivers’ license so we can make a copy of it. Also please bring your prescription for physical therapy if you have one. Florida state law mandates that a prescription from an MD or DO be on file within the first 30 days of treatment. If you want to fill out the paperwork early and bring it with you, it is on our website (click here). Clothing is loose fitting and gym attire is preferred (shorts, t-shirt etc)

What should I wear to treatment?
Because myofascial release should ideally be done on skin, it is preferred that you are comfortably undressed. A tank top and shorts are fine, while some people wear bathing suits. It all depends on how you will be comfortable, and may evolve with time. Please limit jewelry and no skin lotions.
Will I see the same therapist each treatment?
Here at IPT we have a “team policy.” This means we will help you schedule your appointments at times that are convenient for you and at the recommended interval. We have 5 therapists currently, and we want you to meet all of them and see how each therapist has their own special way of treating you! Although all therapists are highly trained in the consistent approach, each have their own unique style and we, as well as our colleague’s, MFR therapists around the country, have found that seeing more than one therapist will mean you progress faster. That said, if you prefer to see one therapist, just tell the front desk staff and they will make it happen for you.
How many treatments will I need?
Everyone has a different diagnosis and will respond to treatment individually. There is no magic number of treatments. Also, age is not an issue, you are never too young or old to experience the benefits of MFR and the therapies we offer. That being said, in most instances you should be starting to see and feel progress towards your goals by the sixth visit at the latest. At your first visit the physical therapist will recommend how often you should come in order for you to meet your specific goals. Coming more often usually results in faster progress. Treatments are spaced further apart once you are maintaining and feeling a lot better.
Do you accept checks/credit cards?
We accept cash, check and all major credit cards.
What is your cancellation policy?

Since your appointment time is a whole hour set aside specifically for you, we request that all patients extend a courteous 24-hour cancellation notice to change or cancel any appointment. If less than 24 hours’ notice is given, the full session fee will apply in a discretionary fashion.

Is it ok to be late for my appointment?
Your appointment time is reserved for you, so you do not sign in and you do not wait for it to be your turn. If you are late you will have less time to be treated by the therapist because there is another person with a reserved appointment after you. If you do think you will be a little late, please call us and let us know.
Do I need a prescription for physical therapy?

No, not necessarily.

In Florida, it is legal to be evaluated and treated by a physical therapist WITHOUT a prescription for the first 30 days, or 10 visits, whichever comes first. You will need one thereafter though. KEEP IN MIND, YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY MAY REQUIRE YOU TO HAVE ONE PRIOR TO BEGINGN YOUR THERAPY. If submitting for insurance reimbursement on your own, it is wise to have a prescription from the beginning of treatment, since they often request it. After the initial visit, our office will mail/e-mail or fax a typed copy of your evaluation to the doctor whom you specify, and that usually encourages them to write a script saying “Physical Therapy. Evaluate and Treat” or whatever else they choose to write o
