Insurance and Billing
Note that new conditions often require authorization before you can be treated. Please check with your insurance plan to see if you need one or if you can do a self-referral for hand therapy. In the state of California, self-referrals for physical therapy have been authorized. However, depending on your insurance plan, you should doublecheck that they will cover self-referrals for hand therapy before you make an appointment.
If your insurance plan requires a referral, you may need to see your primary care physician first before scheduling an appointment with one of our hand therapists.
Please remember that all co-pays are due at the time of your visit. For your convenience, we accept Visa and MasterCard. FORM Hand Therapy also offers cash and payment plans for qualifying patients. Our billing office is happy to answer your payment questions at (510) 505-1090.
